Construction is expected to start next year on West Village’s latest apartment tower which will feature eight exclusive skyhomes and an array of smart and wellness features.
A development application has been lodged for a $170m 22-storey residential tower within Sekisui House Australia’s $1.1 billion-dollar precinct in West End.
Named Altura, the tower will be the tallest in the precinct and have 156 luxury residences, sky garden, infinity pool and resident dining and cinema rooms.
West Village project director Harrison Phillips said there would be a focus on optimising health, wellness and environmental consciousness.
“We’ve undertaken a lot of research and understand the built environment that people live in has a significant impact neurologically,” he said. “With this in mind and working with (architects) Smart Design, our team has integrated unique design features that focus on sensory perception and neuroscience, evoking positive and calming emotions, providing better sleep, stimulating creative thinking, and overall offering a feeling of enhanced happiness.”
Mr Phillips said Altura is scheduled to launch in early 2021 with construction due to commence later that year.
He said the proposed new development will further reinforce West Village as a precinct where community, lifestyle and health and wellbeing were always at the forefront
“Our approach to development is very much about legacy and ongoing benefit to generations to come,” Mr Phillips said.
“We are a long-term development business and we develop for future generations and our precincts get better with age.”
Altura will be West Village’s central smart tower with an integration of smart home technology features including access, temperature and lighting control into the residences that is adaptive for future generations.
Incorporating extensive lush landscaping, the building also features a number of environmental initiatives including solar panels and grey water recycling which is a common feature to all the residential buildings of West Village.
On Little Jane Lane, residents will have immediate access to innovative health and leisure facilities, several expansive green spaces and parklands, 35 retailers, fresh food markets, and medical facilities.
As part of the development application Altura will offer eight exclusive skyhomes/retreats on the upper levels with four sizeable bedrooms and superior views.
Mr Phillips said the multistage transformation of the old Peters Ice Cream factory site was at the halfway stage.
“We have delivered 378 residences and most are sold out and we have another three apartment buildings to go,” he said.
“The $170m retail precinct, with Woolworths as the anchor tenant, which is due for completion in May 2021 and 75 per cent has been leased which is a pretty phenomenal effort during covid.
“We will also have two commercial buildings of which the Greenhouse, has just received development approval.”
