Collective #6 – Union St Brunswick
- Site: 2 Union Street Brunswick
- Status: Town Planning
- Collaborators: Pillar+Post Architecture
- Commencement: July 2017
- Completion : 2020
- Partners: 6
Our sixth townhouse joint venture launched in July 2016 with the purchase of 2 Union Street Brunswick, only 50 metres from Sydney Road with Jewel train station a little over 150m away.
Our 6 partner collective purchased the 365 m2 property at auction for $1.8m 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 re-designed the scheme within the approved building envelope and are looking to obtain our permit in early 2018 and start construction in late 2018.
