Laying adjacent to premier Bayside locales, in the middle-ring suburbs of Melbourne, is master-planned community, Highett Common. This 9.3-hectare site sets the scene for a new chapter in Bayside living, offering luxury apartments and townhomes, complemented by resort-like precinct amenities surrounded by four hectares of parkland.

Privately owned developer Sunkin Property Group has appointed SK Construction to deliver the $600 million masterplanned development, commencing a unique builder-developer relationship between the two companies, where SK Construction will exclusively deliver Sunkin’s existing and future project pipeline.

This announcement coincides with the beginning of Highett Common’s $70 million Stage 1 construction, which will deliver 167 new apartments completed by late 2025. The community will be delivered in multiple stages over the next five years, which will see over 1,000 new apartments and townhouses across the 9.3 hectare masterplan by 2029.
