New foot for­ward

Herald Sun - Property - - DE­VEL­OP­MENT - MA­JELLA COR­RI­GAN

BUY­ERS in the Hello Hei­del­berg apart­ment project can say good­bye to their car.

The de­vel­op­ment at 82 Haw­don St, Hei­del­berg, is within walk­ing dis­tance of al­most ev­ery amenity res­i­dents could need, in­clud­ing shops, cafes, res­tau­rants, pub­lic trans­port, schools, hos­pi­tals, parks and bike/walk­ing trails.

To be built by Va­leo Con­struc­tons, the project will have 30 apart­ments over seven lev­els. They have been de­signed by D’Orio Ar­chi­tec­ture for in­door/out­door liv­ing and to take ad­van­tage of the panoramic views.

Mar­shall White Projects di­rec­tor Leonard Teplin, who is mar­ket­ing the de­vel­op­ment, said while most of the apart­ments did come with a car park, the abil­ity to travel ev­ery­where by foot was prov­ing a strong sell­ing point.

The project is around the cor­ner from shop­ping and din­ing in bustling Bur­gundy St, the ma­jor med­i­cal and re­search precinct of the Austin and Mercy hos­pi­tals and Hei­del­berg train sta­tion, which pro­vides a 25-minute trip to the city. Park­lands with bike trails along the sub­urb’s Yarra River bor­der are a short walk away.

The sub­urb, 13km north­east of the CBD, was home to the 19th-cen­tury Hei­del­berg School of artists — Tom Roberts, Arthur Stree­ton and Frederick McCub­bin — but has be­come pop­u­lar with young peo­ple who like its prox­im­ity to North­cote and Thorn­bury, as well as fam­i­lies and down­siz­ers.

The Hello Hei­del­berg apart­ments will fea­ture ef­fi­cient plan­ning and stor­age, with bed­rooms sep­a­rated from each other by liv­ing ar­eas.

“The floor­plans are re­ally well laid out,” Mr Teplin said. “You’ve got two bed­rooms where you don’t have them on top of one an­other, they are sep­a­rated by liv­ing rooms.

“There is good space efficiency: kitchens with is­land benches and bar stools un­der­neath and high ceil­ings. They’re re­ally well de­signed and laid out neat pack­ages.

“There’s only 30 apart­ments in the build­ing, so you’ve got unique views from al­most ev­ery apart­ment.”

Fin­ish­ing touches will in­clude Euro­pean ap­pli­ances, oak tim­ber floors, wool car­pets, stone bench­tops, chrome fit­tings and colour schemes de­signed by See­saw Stu­dio.

The project is sched­uled to be fin­ished in April 2017.

Mr Teplin said six or seven apart­ments were snapped up in the first week of mar­ket­ing.

One-bed­rooms de­signs are priced from $349,500 to $438,375 and two-bed­room de­signs range from $475,000 to $745,000 for the sole top-floor apart­ment.
