New block’s stunning cubes prove it’s hip to be square in Box Hill
by Henry Clarkson
Does Melbourne’s luxury apartment market have room for another high-end unit block? With their 999 Box Hill development, Beller are confident it does – and by focusing on this lively, up-and-coming suburb, they believe they are breaking new ground in one of the city’s most dynamic and fast-growing areas.
The building itself is a stunning conglomeration of four giant off-set cubes, and its array of one-, two- and three-bedroom units are no less striking inside. As one of the first projects to reflect the city’s new design guidelines for Melbourne, each light and airy apartment features plenty of frontage and spacious living areas.
Furthermore, according to Eugene Chieng, director of Hayball, the building’s architects, 999 Box Hill’s interiors take their inspiration from the tranquillity of a day spa: “Timber and natural stone finishes take hues from the interiors of a luxurious spa retreat and the healing power of the earth’s rich mineral assets. A minimal design palette of warm gold and bronze tones further reinforces the sense of well-being and peacefulness throughout.”
With timber floors, integrated fridges, stone bench tops and Bosch appliances as standard, 999 Box Hill is clearly pitched at the high end of the market, but Heath Thompson, associate director of Beller Project Marketing, says it’s the building’s location – just a few hundred meters from Box Hill Shopping Centre, Box Hill Gardens, Epworth Eastern Hospital, as well as Box Hill’s hip-and-happening street culture and extensive public transport facilities – that will be its big draw.
“Unparalleled location, immaculate design and a considered layout provide residents with a new level of convenience and ease of lifestyle, making this one of the precincts most desirable new developments on the market,” says Thompson.
999 Box Hill is set to launch in the first quarter of 2017.
