17 Union Street has been built on the idea that well-designed apartments support wellbeing and connection in the community, an ethos that reflects developer Neometro’s commitment to high-density happiness.
“The apartments at 17 Union Street are more than four walls and a roof,” says Jeff Provan - Design Director of Neometro. “They bring together distinctive architecture, durable interiors, environmental sustainability, and community infrastructure.”
Neometro has collaborated with BKK Architects and Clare Cousins Architects to bring these innovative 1, 2 and 3 bedroom homes to fruition in the popular inner-city suburb of Brunswick. With an underlying focus on how the individual will live, prosper and enjoy his or her apartment, 17 Union Street is a study in exceptional design. Focusing on blending functionality with aesthetics, this stellar development team has ensured each space has been considered and each home benefits from a high level of attention to detail, as demonstrated by an abundance of thoughtful storage solutions – the inbuilt shelving in living rooms and car park storage cages are just two examples.
“The apartments at 17 Union Street focus on liveability within each home,” says Clare Cousins of Clare Cousins Architects. “The connection with the outdoor terrace, nooks and functional kitchen make living in 17 Union Street a pleasure. Open corridors between apartments provide naturally lit and ventilated circulation spaces and enable natural ventilation to the adjoining apartments.”
Good design is not only about maximising liveability, it’s also about sustainable living. At 17 Union Street, there is a focus on creating infrastructures that support resilient communities while incorporating environmentally sustainable design principles into the built form.
With shade awnings on balconies to promote passive cooling, double-glazed (operable) windows and balcony doors, recycled water and rooftop solar plants, this project has a dramatically lowered carbon footprint – so residents can enjoy living in their new homes guilt-free.
Meanwhile, the community infrastructure provides a platform for residents to be active and connected members of their community. Communal gardens and new bike paths are just the beginning – this new residential address places owners in the centre of a suburb with a thriving arts scene, café culture and frequent public transport. The city is less than 6km away and accessible via the train station or tram stop at the doorstep.
Families will love the three bedroom offerings, available on the higher levels and benefiting from gorgeous city views or with north-facing balconies while the cleverly designed 1 bedroom apartments are attractive, especially due to the project’s proximity to major universities and hospitals.
17 Union Street sits alongside sprawling parklands and neighbouring suburbs of Carlton and Parkville. Locals can be found at Princes Park on the weekend, either walking their dogs or exercising in natural surrounds or enjoying brunch at one of the many cafés scattered along Sydney Road, Lygon Street and Nicholson Street.
Sized from 49 to 123 sqm and priced from $435,000 to $1,195,000, apartments at 17 Union Street are expected to commence construction in early 2019.
