Each unit above the ground floor will feature a minimum of 12 sqm private balconies, allowing residents to enjoy outdoor spaces and soak in the surrounding views. Additionally, the ground floor units will have the added benefit of a minimum 35 sqm private courtyard, providing ample room for relaxation and leisure activities.

One of the standout features of this development is the generous rooftop garden and communal recreation area. Situated on the top level, this space will offer on-site passive recreation opportunities for the residents, fostering a sense of community and providing a tranquil retreat amidst the urban landscape.

Parking and accessibility have also been carefully considered in the plans. The proposal includes 75 car park spaces, with 67 dedicated to residents and 8 for visitors. Furthermore, the development will provide 53 bicycle spaces, catering to the increasing demand for sustainable transportation options.



The design philosophy behind the development emphasises a human scale, promoting casual surveillance and an engaging streetscape. Balconies, openings, and strategically positioned windows overlook Norman Avenue, encouraging interaction between residents and the neighbourhood.

Privacy is also a key consideration, achieved through fine-level elevation detailing and screening techniques that ensure a sense of seclusion whilst enhancing the facade’s visual appeal.

In terms of landscaping, the proposed development strikes a balance between the built form and green space. Ample deep planting areas, capable of accommodating subtropical shade trees, will be incorporated along the front and rear property boundaries. This thoughtful approach will soften the overall built form of the apartment building, providing shade and contributing to a visually pleasing environment.
