- Regarded as the first luxury apartment project in McKinnon
- Consists of 41 apartments
- Falls within a high-performing school zone
Private developer Dealcorp has announced the completion of its $30 million apartment project, MCKN.
The 236 Jasper Road project is the first luxury apartment project to be developed in McKinnon, a suburb 12 kilometres south east of the Melbourne CBD.
The project has been designed by RITZ&GHOUGASSIAN.
Spanning five levels, the apartment consists of 41 two and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses.
A last-minute change to the fourth floor of the project was made in 2020 by Dealcorp to allow for additional penthouse residences. This was to meet the needs of growing demand for larger bayside apartments due to Covid-19.
Sought after suburb and school zone
MCKN is located in the McKinnon Secondary College zone, which consistently ranks among the top-performing schools in Victoria.
The base of the building will be home to a new café operated by the duo behind Thornbury’s Prior. This will be their first southside operation.
David Kobritz, DealCorp’s Executive Chairman, said that MCKN is recognised by buyers as the highest quality apartment building to be constructed in the area.
“McKinnon is an incredibly sought after suburb, so we are pleased to be able to deliver much-needed quality apartments at an accessible price point for young families wanting to get into the area,” said Mr Kobritz.
“With limited apartment stock in McKinnon and no other comparable local projects, MCKN provides a unique point of difference for home hunters looking to move to Melbourne’s south-east.
“We couldn’t be happier with how the project has come together and we’re sure our residents will enjoy living there and love becoming part of the McKinnon community.”
Heath Thompson, Projects by Buxton director, who is managing sales at MCKN.
“In a time of financial uncertainty, the drawcard of a really strong public school has been a huge pull for buyers who may consider that private schooling is now out of their reach,” said Mr Thompson.
“Now that buyers are able to touch and feel the product, experience the excellent location and with the ground level café and providore set to open shortly, I’m certain the remaining three apartments will not be on the market for long.”
