Malvern Collective heralds new age for neighbourhood

Malvern Collective heralds new age for neighbourhood

Developer Kokoda Property is set to rejuvenate one of Melbourne’s most exclusive suburbs with Malvern Collective, a full-precinct development.

Occupying a prime position on the corner of Glenferrie and Dandenong Roads in Malvern, the apartment and broader site development will vitalise the southern end of Glenferrie Rd whilst maintaining surrounding heritage, bringing a bold and brilliant design that heralds a new age for the neighbourhood.

Perfect for everyone from first-time buyers to downsizers, the two-building 4,714sqm site will welcome over 250 residences and a new dining, retail, and commercial precinct to the area, including two design-focused residential apartment buildings and communal facilities to rival a five-star hotel.

Running through the heart of Malvern Collective is Station Place. The area is set to be totally reinvigorated with a nod to Melbourne’s celebrated laneway culture and plans for an artisan bakery, organic food store, health and wellness centre, boutique cinema and more.

“The project marks an exciting development for Kokoda, which is set to reinvigorate the southern end of Glenferrie Road in one of Melbourne’s most sought-after suburbs,” says Mark Stevens, Managing Director of Kokoda Property.

“We pride ourselves on developing projects that are lifestyle-driven and offer people more than just a home. This brand-new Malvern community precinct will do just that, establishing a community where everything is within reach – from transport and cafes, to private schools and multi-use social spaces.”

Working with heritage consultants Lovell Chen and award-winning architects Jackson, Clements and Burrows (JCB), Malvern Collective will pay homage to the area’s past while celebrating its bright future by creating a new icon as striking and sophisticated as Malvern itself.

Inside, courtesy of acclaimed studio Carr Design, residents will find interiors inspired by 5-star hotels from around the world with a 7-day concierge.

Complete with stunning oak timber flooring, reconstituted stone, brushed satin tapware, warm walnut timber and cool joinery, Malvern Collective creates a home that is both highly contemporary and naturally welcoming.

The development comes with a whole host of amazing amenities. Take a seat and enjoy the 16-seat private cinema, or relax at the in-house spa and sauna. Head down to the private dining room for dinner or host a gathering at the barbecue area before winding down at sunset in the refreshing rooftop lap pool, taking in the spectacular views of the Melbourne skyline. There really will be something for everyone.

Malvern Collective not only looks to house residents in luxury, but bring people together through great food and wine. The development will be at the heart of a range of delightful eateries, including the reimagined Angel Tavern.

Here, the award-winning studio of Technē, known for designing some of Melbourne’s most iconic venues, has created a place of relaxed sophistication where residents and visitors alike can enjoy a meal with friends, or a long weekend afternoon in the sunny beer garden — this is where a local legend will be reborn.

The project’s laneways will increase functionality for up to 3,000 commuters traveling to and from the easily accessible Malvern train station each day, making the daily commute between the leafy suburb and CBD a breeze.

Whether you’re a fitness guru or just have a dog you want to walk in the park, Malvern has an array of leafy areas. Nearby Malvern Public Gardens and Caulfield Park feature beautiful, majestic trees, rolling lawns and tranquil water features. Enjoy an early run, leisurely picnic with friends or summer time opera under the stars. These lush spaces will become your favourite place to unwind and recharge.

Malvern Collective is so much more than just a place to live; it is a collective inviting everyone to bask in all that the charming heritage suburb of Malvern has to offer.
