The Terrace Collection is the final release at Burwood Brickworks at Burwood East. Demonstrating agility and adaptability to the modern purchasers’ needs, this master-planned community is being built to centre on principles of community and heightened connectivity, anchored by sustainable design principles.

These final release residences are ideally located at the heart of the community’s vibrant urban hub. Residents will find themselves moments from world-leading retail spaces including a full-line Woolworths supermarket, Dan Murphy’s, a Reading Cinema and a delectable dining strip.

“This project exemplifies everything we stand for: building sustainable, liveable communities that promote the long-term health and wellbeing of our residents.”

Set amongst 2.5 hectares of green space including open parklands, landscaped reserves and leafy enclaves, the developers’ focus on integrated green infrastructure is immediately evident. At Burwood Brickworks, residents and their visitors will never be far from a connection with nature and will enjoy ample opportunities to lead an active lifestyle. The urban plaza offers all the modern amenities needed for a truly connected and convenient lifestyle. 

The newly created shopping centre has been recognised as the world's most sustainable shopping centre with its Living Building Challenge® (LBC®) Petal Certification administered by The International Living Future Institute - and is also the first in Australia to feature an innovative rooftop urban farm. The flagship farm spans a generous 2,500sqm and includes a greenhouse, landscaped growing areas and planter boxes to grow produce for the rooftop restaurant and cafe - offering a true paddock to plate experience. True to an eco-conscious lifestyle, the centre collects all organic waste to be repurposed into compost and other resources. Similarly, all grey and black water is harvested, treated and reused on-site. 

Burwood Brickworks is a Green Star world leader with the Green Building Council of Australia awarding the development an impressive 6-Star Green Star Communities rating - making it one of the best designed and most thoughtfully considered communities in the world. Theo Della Bosca, Development Director  at Frasers Property Australia says, “our aim was to integrate all aspects of this mixed-use site fully. We want residents to participate in the net waste positive strategy to reduce reliance on all single-use packaging, and repurpose waste away from traditional landfills by recycling soft plastics at Woolworths and using the compost heaps at the rooftop urban farm.” Throughout Burwood Brickworks, 20% of retail space has been dedicated to agriculture, ensuring the community is as sustainable in the future as it is today.

Located on Foundation Boulevard, The Terrace Collection apartments have been artfully designed by the award-winning architects at Rothelowman. Spanning six levels, most homes are ideally positioned to maximise the best views of the stunning Dandenong ranges - the vista adding a unique design element to the interiors. Ground-level apartments are gifted with generous courtyards for a seamless indoor-outdoor lifestyle with a select few apartments enjoying direct street access for added privacy. 

Inside, the elegant interiors are offered in an option of light or dark schemes - both providing elegance and style guided by functionality.  The homes are as eco-conscious as the wider community - the built spaces hiding a host of sustainable elements without compromising on design. Living spaces include all the modern fixtures and finishes expected of contemporary homes including Caesarstone benchtops and premium appliances. Residents will leave a lower carbon footprint and enjoy higher energy savings thanks to the integrated PV system to harness and utilise solar power in their day-to-day living.

“As technology has evolved, we’ve been able to come up with new and better ways to be more environmentally-friendly while maintaining high standards of striking architectural and interior design.”

Sarah Bloom, General Manager Development, Frasers Property Australia

Burwood Brickworks’ commitment to energy saving and lowering the carbon footprint of its residents means The Terrace Collection residents will save an average of 14% on their apartment’s running costs compared to a standard apartment.
