Roulston and Buxton Group, in collaboration with Ewert Leaf, Marshall White Projects and the acclaimed Jack Merlo, presents Gladstone Armadale. Located only 7km from Melbourne city - and within one of the most prized pockets of the enviable postcode - Gladstone Armadale offers a premium collection of spacious residences defined by artistic excellence. 

In a nod to Armadale’s ‘leafy’ charm, all apartments at Gladstone Armadale are surrounded by lush landscaping. Jack Merlo describes the curated outdoor spaces as a “considered response to the vision of the architect, bringing an ordered and organic form to the built environment.”


High-end landscaping firm Jack Merlo’s lush design complements Gladstone Armadale’s bold facade. Greenery mingles with the charcoal satin brickwork to harmonise the structure with Armadale’s natural landscape. Inside, the main living spaces open to private gardens. The curated selection of plants does more than simply engineer privacy throughout; the lush landscaping creates the perfect setting to relax and unwind in. 

Gardenia Spring Pearls anchor the landscaping through generous underplanting. Both are evergreen species - ensuring the garden always looks lush - producing beautiful summers throughout the spring and summer months. An Ornamental Pear tree with luscious, shiny leaves that hang down the branches adds a distinct focal point. In autumn, you will notice the leaves transform from green to purple-red while spring will bring about an elegant display of flowers and small, russet-coloured fruits. 

For the feature foliage, Jack Merlo has selected a Honey Locust tree. Planted on the site corner, this medium canopy tree will be instantly recognisable by its vase-shaped canopy and soft, weeping habit. The foliage will change from bright yellow to a spectacular lime green over the seasons, with winter bringing about distinct black seedpods that hang from the branches. 


Gladstone Armadale is designed and built to offer style and longevity through excellent craftsmanship. As standard, these elegant homes include an impressive 50 weeks builder’s defects liability period and the use of only the safest facade materials as approved by the Fire Rescue Victoria (FRV).

All apartments feature premium fittings and fixtures with all appliances available with up to a five-year warranty period. These are just a few factors offering purchasers added peace of mind at Gladstone Armadale. Construction is progressing on schedule, with residents expecting to move in at the end of 2022.
