A collaboration between the industry-leading JCL Prime, Elenberg Fraser, Henny and Openwork, Arbour Park in leafy Surrey Hills presents luxuriously appointed homes that raise the bar in apartment - and traditional house - living.

Standing head and shoulders above other similar properties in Boroondara, Arbour Park offers opulence through oversized floorplans, architectural sophistication and premium craftsmanship yet unseen in the area. 

Reade Dixon, principal of Elenberg Fraser comments, “We have been working on a new residential platform for some time now - the New Standard - and Arbour Park comes out of the research of this design platform.” The level of thought and care that has gone into these homes make them ideal for owner-occupiers and downsizers who do not want to make any lifestyle sacrifices. 


Best of both worlds


“More than a house and more than apartment living, [Arbour Park] is a personalised residential offering. A project where integrated multi-residential living eclipses the great Australian dream of the quarter-acre block,” continues Reade. 


“[Arbour Park] provides the intimacy and privacy of a home with the security and community that comes with apartment living.”

Free from the expectations of both traditional apartment and detached house living, Arbour Park offers homes that blend only the best aspects of both within an architectural masterpiece. The adjoining 1.4-hectare Surrey Gardens has greatly influenced Arbour Park’s twin-building development; drawing inspiration from the native Victorian eucalyptus trees nearby. 

The material and finishes palette continues the theme of integrating the natural environment into the built space by paying homage to the surrounding greenery. Fittings, fixtures and finishes are presented in natural textures and shades with pops of bronze, stone and timber punctuating the design. 

Elenberg Fraser’s architectural approach is more than just beautiful aesthetics. In collaboration with industry-renowned Openwork, biophilic elements have been thoughtfully integrated at every opportunity - encouraging residents to reconnect with nature. In addition to the lush greenery and meticulous landscaping within the private terraces and courtyards, Arbour Park homes maximise the aspect for increased natural lighting and enhanced cross-flow ventilation. The result is a more energy-efficient home that reduces residents’ daily reliance on utilities. 


“Elenberg Fraser is known for design excellence and have a legacy that has shaped Melbourne’s skyline with soaring towers. We wanted to bring that design pedigree into the city fringe, and therefore engaged them to help shape the new face of Melbourne’s neighbourhoods.”

Eric Loi, JCL Prime


Elegance, functionality and a sense of community


Arbour Park’s generous floor plans - spanning up to 267sqm - and biophilic elements offer more than many traditional detached houses can. This multi-residential living introduces elements of a homely neighbourhood with a distinct sense of belonging, offering both privacy as well as a tight-knit community at the doorstep. 

The development also sits on Canterbury road - the location offering heightened urban amenities and a lifestyle of convenience - an element many established houses lack. The locale is home to a bustling retail strip including Coles’ first premium supermarket in Australia, Coles Local. Union Road is also a short stroll away and dotted with a delectable range of cafes, restaurants and speciality grocers. Those commuting to the city will be pleased to discover Surrey Hills train station just around the corner from Arbour Park while families will have peace of mind that the surrounding areas offer elite schools including Camberwell High School and Strathcona Girls Grammar School. 

Oriented towards contemporary elegance, functionality and a sense of community, Arbour Park provides the perfect setting to live amongst nature with all the convenience and character of a suburban village. Generously proportioned two and three-bedroom layouts are available starting from $705,000. For more information on Arbour Park, click here.
