Interest grows in Seed
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.
