Our sixth townhouse joint venture launched in 2016 with the purchase of 2 Union Street Brunswick, only 50 metres from Sydney Road with Jewel train station a little over 150m away. The project was completed in December 2022.
The collective purchased the 365 m2 property at auction for $1.8m and built 6 dwellings on the site. The project features five four level 3-bedroom townhouses and a three level residence with ground floor office on Union Street. The five rear townhouses are all on compact circa 50 sqm lots over four levels with 3 beds, 2 baths and 1 car park. The property came with plans and permits for 10 small apartments and ground floor retail. We re-designed the scheme within the approved building envelope.
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.
