A Highett development with a curving design inspired by nearby Port Phillip Bay will be topped with a residents’ rooftop anchored by a lavish plunge pool.
With a rare-for-the-area 13-storey tower part of the complex, Southpoint is also offering unrivalled views of the water, the CBD and Dandenong Ranges.
A landscaped rooftop takes full advantage of the height with a circular plunge pool, a sunset bar, a barbecue area, built-in sun lounges, dining areas and space for exercising.
Castran Gilbert director Michael Lang said the impressive aspect spoke for itself at the tower on the Nepean Highway side of the complex.
A number of buyers had also sought the lower density and quiet street frontage of the smaller building that looks onto Mathieson St.
Mr Lang said 10 of the apartments had been sold or reserved since it was launched three weeks ago, with a mix of local downsizers and young professionals driving the deals.
While its height would give residents views not dissimilar to those in inner-city towers, the modern design by Rothelowman was in keeping with the bayside lifestyle, he said.
“It’s very natural, but in keeping with the theme of where it is,” he said.
“So it has earthy and sandy tones, and a wavy form linking to the nearby water. And the level of finish inside is quite high.”
Pale polished reconstituted stone benchtops join engineered timber flooring, stainless steel appliances and full-height glazing to maintain the breezy bayside feel inside the homes.
The development, set between the Nepean Highway Service Rd and Matthieson St is on the doorstep of Westfield Southland and Southland train station, while parks and the beach are a short trip away.
Construction is expected to start in April and take about 18 months to complete.
One-bedroom apartments are priced from $420,000-$525,000, two-bedroom homes from $560,000-$820,000 and three-bedroom offerings from $920,000-$.1.68m.
