There was a time when apartment developments were confined to the hip and happening inner-city suburbs of Melbourne. 

But developers were forced to sit up and take notice as demand increased for a low-maintenance, no-fuss lifestyle in the leafy suburbs.

The recent trend in Box Hill is the perfect example, with a range of developments cropping up to cater for buyers who want to remain close to family and friends, but are keen to break into the market or downsize from their current arrangement.

And it’s little wonder why people want to continue living within the cultural hub of Box Hill, it has all of the essentials required to make you wonder whether there’s any reason to leave.

‘TaoHome’ is Box Hill’s latest offering, a contemporary, boutique development of 82 apartments in a central location, but just far enough from the main drag for some peace and quiet.


Buyers have the option of a one or two bedroom apartment, and can even merge apartments to create a three-bedroom dwelling if desired.

“All of the apartments have a really great floorplan and are really well-sized internally, in addition to this, the finishes are of a much higher quality than most of the developments in the area,” explains Urban Activation’s Lucas Giannotti.

The floorpan is designed to allow for an effortless lifestyle, with open-plan living, kitchen and dining areas connecting through to private balconies, allowing residents to move from each section with ease.

The bathrooms also have plenty of space, and each apartment comes with car parking, a rarity in most apartment developments.

Residents also have access to a range of premium shared facilities. Lush gardens fill the rooftop terrace, which also comes with a walking track, a veggie patch to grow your own food, barbecue facilities, and a space for relaxation, while the complex also has a lounge with mah-jong tables and a wellness centre on the ground floor.

“The body corporate is lower because the facilities are easily maintained, there’s really good long-term sustainability in the project,” Mr Giannotti says.


The location allows for the best of both worlds when it comes to being close to the centre of the action, with TaoHome located in a quiet court.

“People are a lot busier in their lives, the ability to access amenity is important to them. Box Hill is growing substantially. It’s also an area where people like being close to the shopping centre, to public transport, parklands and the freeway to drive in and out, it’s very important to them.”

With that being said, the very best of Box Hill is all within walking distance, that includes Box Hill Shopping Centre, top educational institutes, public transport options in the form of trains, trams and buses, and plenty of expansive parks.

With construction set to commence mid July, Mr Giannotti says it’s only a matter of time before all of the apartments are snapped up.

“The reality is that TaoHome will be sold out within 60 days,” he says.
