Few residential projects manage to achieve a fast completion whilst still maintaining a high level of build quality, but the stunning Turner Residences in Glen Iris has just done exactly that - setting the benchmark for apartment living in the area.

Samuel Property is the driving force behind the development, which was designed for locals and certainly proved a hit with them; Fastrack just 20 months from the public sales launch, and many happy residents have already moved in to enjoy their sophisticated new homes.


The 31 generous and high-quality apartments were designed by renowned Bruce Henderson Architects, with Figurehead Construction appointed by Samuel to create the striking building that now commands attention on the corner of Malvern Road and Kenilworth Grove.

“We are extremely proud to have developed Turner Residences,” said Illan Samuel, Managing Director of Samuel Property. “The purchasers who have been able to secure a residence here will be fortunate to enjoy space and light in abundance – complemented by a curated interior design that feels warm and considered.”


The project also offers unique features often neglected in multi-residential buildings of this scale. These include three levels of fully secure on grade car parking, generous entry foyers, dual lifts, convenient bin chutes, and a car wash/loading bay.

It’s no wonder Turner Residences sold out fast, and its success is also another great result for Apartment Developments, which delivered an impressive 83 email enquiries for the project.


“Turner sold quickly and was built quickly too, but importantly, we haven’t compromised on quality or cost for the benefit of speed. A tremendous amount of work has gone into driving the project to tick all the boxes,” said Samuel.

Key to Turner’s popularity was the high level of customisation available, giving buyers plenty of input into how their home would function – which also required a lot of ongoing communication.

“We always ensure that we maintain regular, clear, and informative communication with all of our buyers,” said Romy Jackson, Development Manager at Samuel. “We welcome their input during various key stages, and feel it’s important to keep them updated on exactly where we are in the process – bringing them on the journey with us.”


Turner’s location was also a popular choice. Glen Iris is a desirable spot for many reasons, combining as it does the enviable village atmosphere with plenty of retail, amenity and food options. The continual growth in the area’s property values makes it the ideal place to buy, no doubt another factor in the project’s success.

With Turner Residences all wrapped up, Samuel Property is preparing to launch its next exciting project, for which a prized spot in Bayside’s exclusive Hampton has been secured.
