In­ter­est grows in Seed

Herald Sun - Property - - DEVELOPMENT -

APART­MENT buy­ers look­ing to put down roots in Pre­ston have a new bou­tique devel­op­ment to con­sider.

The Seed project will see 43 one and two-bed­room apart­ments built over six lev­els in bustling High St.

Each apart­ment will come with its own rooftop herb gar­den plot. The plots will form part of the larger communal rooftop gar­den, with seat­ing, paving and light­ing.

As well as ap­peal­ing to green­thumbs, it should also cap­ture the at­ten­tion of buy­ers with an eye for a good in­vest­ment, ac­cord­ing to sales agent Mark Fo­ry­tarz of Cas­tran Gil­bert.

Mr Fo­ry­tarz said Pre­ston was seen as a ris­ing star of the north­ern sub­urbs, with in­creas­ing de­mand for prop­erty and the re­vival of its shop­ping strips.

“Pre­ston is be­com­ing a re­ally trendy sub­urb and you can see it in the qual­ity of the shops. They are re­ally im­prov­ing and that’s a good in­di­ca­tor or what’s hap­pen­ing in the area,” he said.

“It is the next sub­urb from Thorn­bury which has gone through the roof. All the in­di­ca­tors are that this is go­ing to be a real hotspot.”

Mr Fo­ry­tarz said the lo­ca­tion was a win­ner, just 10km from the CBD and close to Bell and Pre­ston train sta­tions as well as shops, cafes and restau­rants.

The apart­ments will have a bright open-plan living and dining area open­ing to a bal­cony, some en­joy­ing city views.

There is a choice of the light “cleanse” or dark “en­rich” in­te­rior de­sign colour scheme, while re­verse cy­cle heat­ing and cool­ing are in­cluded.

All will come with a bike park­ing space and most will also have a car space.

De­vel­oped by DPG and de­signed by Cham­ber­lain Ar­chi­tects, the project at 204 High St is ex­pected to be fin­ished in about 15 months.

Re­main­ing one-bed­room apart­ments are priced from $345,000 to $400,000, with two-bed­room apart­ments rang­ing $425,000 to $539,000.
