Boutique developer JCL Prime has announced plans for its second central Melbourne project in Clifton Hill. According to the application submitted to the Yarra City Council, the building will feature a biophilic design to encourage its residents to connect with nature. Key elements will include increased natural daylight, cross-flow ventilation and lush plantings throughout the building. 


The development will sit on a previously vacant 1,500sqm site at 15-33 Queens Parade. 60 “high-quality” apartments will be sprawled across six-storeys, housed within a tiered apartment block designed by acclaimed architect Cera Stribley - whose previous projects include Fabric in Caulfield. The design will feature a three-storey podium, three upper levels and a communal enclosed rooftop. 

Inside, there will be 18 one-bedroom, 32 two-bedroom and ten three-bedroom homes above two levels of secure basement car parking. The development will also include 345sqm of ground-floor retail space for a restaurant, cafe and shop. 

Arbour Park offers opulence through oversized floorplans, architectural sophistication and premium craftsmanship,

JCL Prime said the early aim was to deliver high quality and affordable solutions within projects in blue-chip locations ideal for local buyers. The developer’s previous project, Arbour Park in Surrey Hills has been performing incredibly in the market. The homes feature generous floor plans - spanning up to 267sqm - and biophilic elements. The multi-residential homes introduced elements of a homely neighbourhood with a distinct sense of belonging, offering privacy and a tight-knit community at its doorstep.
