I’m pleased to announce the launch of our sixth townhouse joint venture with the purchase in July last year of 2 Union Street Brunswick, only 50 metres from Sydney Road with Jewel train station a little over 150m away.
Our newest collective purchased the 365 m2 property at auction and our strategy is to build 6 dwellings on the site, five four level 3-bedroom townhouses on the property and a three level residence with ground floor office on Union Street. The five rear townhouses will all be on compact circa 50 sqm lots over four levels with 3 beds, 2 baths and 1 car park.
The site has laneway right of ways along the eastern and northern boundary, which will make for great access and light, but also give the site a bit of a gritty Dickensian context, with views to the rear of the old red brick Victorian shops along Sydney Road and the tops of the Brunswick Uniting Church spires further up Sydney Road.
The property came with plans and permits for 10 small apartments and ground floor retail. We have started the process of re-designing the scheme and are planning to lodge our new application in February.
While this project already has its full complement of partners, if you are interested in finding out about upcoming projects please feel free to get in touch.
