Introducing Morang Views, Northern Melbourne’s premiere residential address.
Starting at Aud$330,000, Morang Views, developed by Universal Corpration in conjunction with marketing and development partner Resimax Group offers exceptional value while modernizing a location that is regarded as one of the Australia’s fastest growing suburbs.
This development comprises:
- 217 units with a GDV of Aud$90 million.
- Size of development is 220,000 sq. ft.
- Owner’s corporation fees: Approximately $1,200 per year
- 50% of stage one has been sold out in Australia
Whilst only 23 km northeast of the Melbourne CBD, South Morang is flanked by several significant parklands and heritage treasures, including Plenty Gorge Park, Le Page Homestead and Farm Vigano. In addition to its rich and natural character, South Morang is one of the fastest developing suburb in Australia.
It’s just around the corner from Westfield, the area’s largest retail complex, and leading the rejuvenation of the metropolitan rail network, with a multi-million Metro station, Morang Views is the area’s newest residential retreat, offering a lifestyle that melds city and country values. Here, history and community meet livability, sustainability and affordability.
Designed by the winner of last year’s international design award held in London, Mr. Fady Hachem as a natural development, tranquility and peacefulness are the embodied themes with a strong intention to provide a lot of greenery for occupiers.
A primary aim for the Morang Views developers and architects was to create responsible and dynamic infrastructure, specifically:
- to establish a healthy, comfortable and stimulating environment for residents.
- to minimize the development’s negative impact to the environment, during both construction phase and ongoing operations.
- to improve both productivity of the land and the value of the site
It was important to establish the foundations of the community, where people share space and facilities but also ideals. Features of Morang Views – such as the communal playgrounds and courtyards, gardens and barbecue area for residents’ use, a library with Internet access – promote positive interaction between neighbours, and also between residents and their environment.
Additional features, implemented within the architecture itself, set an important standard for a low-cost lifestyle and a light footprint. Such features include:
- maximal use of natural lighting and ventilation
- responsibly sourced building materials (including the use of recycled steel, PVC and timber)
- energy-efficient lighting
- solar-heating hot water (30 – 60%)
- smart meters monitoring energy and water usage
- rainwater collection for the irrigation of gardens/ use in bathroom facilities
- ample bike parking space to encourage cycling
Plans for Morang Views have continued to evolve over time, to afford potential residents a better quality of living, and to define the development’s integration with the surrounding environment.
Three multi-level apartment buildings rise at the centre-back of the site, interspersed with paths, gardens and communal areas. All apartments have private balconies, light-filled living, dining areas and bedrooms
Morang Views has been designed to provide exciting options to the growing number of people choosing to make South Morang their home. Its prime location affords proximity to a wealth of varied amenities and attractions, from fresh fruits of a long established farming municipality to contemporary fashion and entertainment at Westfield shopping centre, to the best medical facilities and convenient transport.
With the opening of new South Morang railway station and plans to extend the Bundoora tram line to within a minute or two of Morang Views the area is more accessible to broader demographic including singles, young professionals, students and families.
Based on its location, Morang Views is targeted as first home buyers, with owner-occupiers dominating enquiries and sales. “This creates a fantastic opportunity for savvy investors who recognized that the ever decreasing pool of available rental properties combined with increasing demand will drive up rental returns.” said Ken Dodds, Resimax Group’s Marketing Director.
The Morang Views residences include 1 & 2 bedrooms apartments, each with a private balcony. A feature of all homes is a contemporary open-plan design, which celebrates space, light and ease of movement. An award-winning team have devised clean finishes, a soft and sophisticated colour palette, clever storage solutions and intuitive floor plans. The interior concepts provide a great adaptable base, to which homemakers can apply their own preferences and personal touches.
It’s the fine details that quietly make a big difference to your daily routine. Inside Morang Views, all materials, fittings and appliances have been carefully selected for their quality, longevity and their adherence to contemporary standards of efficiency, including low-energy lighting, the most reliable kitchen and bathroom fittings, fine timbers and plush carpets. These are effective solutions that are kind to the environment, and not to mention to your wallet.
