Poly Global, a real estate developer, has announced the submission of a development application for a mixed-use residential project in Box Hill, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia.

The proposals include about 36,817m² across of space across 34 storeys. It also includes 29-storeys of about 370 apartments, two-storeys of retail space, two-storeys of commercial office space, two-storeys of common area amenities along with eight-storeys of basement parking for residents and tenants.

To be located at 843 Whitehorse Road and designed by Fender Katsalidis, the project is touted to have been designed to incorporate all the needs of the community.

Poly Global design head Ryan Cox said: “The combination of a central location, nearby some of Melbourne’s best educational institutions and the rapidly evolving community of Box Hill is attracting buyers of all life stages.

“An area which has traditionally appealed to students is now attracting young families and downsizers who crave the ability to access their lifestyle needs quickly and at ease.

“We are exploring a range of diverse and high-end amenities suitable to these buyers to ensure the development meets their holistic lifestyle needs.”

Mainly residential, the development design is expected to include premium levels of amenities suited for the Box Hill market.

Fender Katsalidis director David Sutherland said: “This mixed-use building will be a vibrant contribution to Box Hill as it evolves as a new city in Melbourne. We are delighted to play a part in its continual development.

“With a podium creating great street-level presence and activity and a tower of striking sculptural form responding its mix of uses and highly visible position as gateway to Box Hill, 843 Whitehorse Road is an excellent addition to the urbanity and life of Box Hill.”

Approval of the application is expected to be received in the third quarter of this year.
