In developing mckn, Dealcorp carefully considered the inclusions with a strong focus on how the end user will live and enjoy their new home.
Dealcorp realised there was a gap in the market in McKinnon and the bayside area of Melbourne. People are looking for more sophisticated homes which grant connectivity to the array of amenities and services available in these areas — and mckn meets this demand.
“mckn is designed for the local forward-thinking market,” David Kobritz, Chairman of Dealcorp, says. “The architecture is modern and fresh — and will establish the new standard for future buildings to be developed with the same level of sophistication and urbanity.”
In developing the project, Dealcorp carefully considered the inclusions with a strong focus on how the end user will live and enjoy their new home. Kobritz says, “We worked closely with award-winning RITZ & GHOUGASSIAN to maximise storage, natural light in all rooms, ventilation, and the use of the highest quality, locally sourced materials.”
Connected to a balcony offering the finest views over the green treetops, each of the homes features a spacious and functional floor plan with flexibility to suit every lifestyle. Floor-to-ceiling windows highlight the timber flooring in living areas and natural stone benchtops in the kitchen, while first-class imported Smeg appliances ensure practical ease when cooking.
Meanwhile, the penthouse collection offers a chance to indulge the senses even further. Wide wooden floorboards work in harmony with warm timber joinery found in the kitchen, while the balconies as large as 80 sqm. Add to this upgraded finishes and these homes represent the ultimate in sophisticated luxury.
Both the residences and penthouses are centred around a large internal courtyard. “The open garden at ground level allows for light throughout the centre of the building,” David says. “Residents with aspects into the courtyard will enjoy seeing the garden evolve as the vines grow, as well as benefit from the additional natural light.” This will provide a gorgeous backdrop for when residents choose to dine al fresco on their balconies.
The new project is located on Jasper Road, only a short stroll away from half a dozen parks, two train stations, McKinnon and Centre Road shops, cafés, and supermarket. “Within a 10-minute drive, you have Brighton Beach, Brighton shops, Chadstone Shopping Centre, Monash Caulfield and so much more,” Kobritz adds.
It’s an enviable location and one that will continue to see significant property growth over the next 5-10 years. The average price of apartments in McKinnon increased by 13% p.a. in the three years up to 2017. In the same period, the suburb had a low growth rate of 1.6%. This means mckn is one of the few opportunities for potential buyers to secure a high-end apartment in this tightly-held area.
One of the project’s many drawcards is its proximity to McKinnon Secondary College — the 8th best-performing government school in the state. And with the train station, only a short walk away and trams running along North Road, families have easy access to McKinnon Primary School, Ormond Primary School and Valkstone Primary School.
