A morning run around Princes Park, followed by a macchiato on Sydney road.
With a walk score of 96, Black St is a walkers’ paradise.
The city is short train or tram ride away via Jewel station or Sydney Rd trams. Walking or riding a bike, the city is just 4kms away. On the weekend, Citylink is only 2 minutes’ drive.
The Apartments are walking distance to the Melbourne University precinct and zoned for the acclaimed Princes Hill Primary and High Schools.
This unsurpassed location offers more time for residents to enjoy the Brunswick lifestyle. A coffee at Code Black. A beer and a live gig at Spotted Mallard or the Union Hotel.
Barkly Square, with its supermarkets and fresh food stalls is less than 200 metres from Black St and the Sydney Rd retail precinct is adjacent.
Black St speaks to the old industrial soul of Brunswick. The raw timber off form concrete façade. The internal textured materials and recycled bricks.
The interiors are exclusive and architecturally-considered. Generously proportioned, they exude quality in fittings and finishes, while at the same time offering energy efficient and acoustic design elements throughout.
Most of the apartments offer unobstructed views of the city over the vast parklands of Princes Park and Royal Park as well as a 270 degree vista over the entire city of Moreland.
Black St will be an exclusive enclave for its residents. With only eleven apartments within the development and one neighbour on each floor level it will be a private, intimate community.
The communal spaces will comprise bike racks and community notice boards.
Security and safety is considered with direct entry off Black street into the car park, together with visual security entry for guests.
Superior wall and roof insulation provide the best possible thermal and acoustic comfort. Internal wall sound screen batts minimise noise transmission within the apartment.
Reverse cycle air conditioning is the most greenhouse and energy efficient way of heating and cooling an apartment. The air conditioners in Black St have some of the highest efficiency on the market. Induction cooktops have been selected for their superior efficiency and convenience.
The west facing glass of Black St is able to be fully or partly shaded or completely open via external high quality motorised louvre blinds. Optional north facing blind packages are also available. The ability to exclude the sun’s rays provides the best of both worlds – using passive solar heating in winter, while excluding the summer heat.
All public area lighting systems are sensor based. All light fittings are high quality LED lights drawing a substantial amount less power than traditional lighting solutions.
The eastern apartments have dual private open space – the balcony plus a north facing winter garden, allowing a kitchen garden or semi enclosed area for pets.
A 10 Kw system is to be installed on the roof of Black St. This will provide a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and should generate enough electricity to reduce power consumption by as much as 2/3rds.
Black St has double glazed windows throughout, providing a significant thermal and acoustic barrier.
With openable windows on 3 sides, cross ventilation at Black St is significantly superior to large-scale apartment developments. The ability to purge hot air from a home once a cool breeze arrives provides a rapid improvement in occupants’ comfort.
The tiled floor and thermal mass of the concrete slab at the north facing windows, allows passive heating when the winter sun is low in the sky. The floor absorbs heat through the day and re-radiates it during the night, reducing heating bills.
The entire roof system drains to a 6,000lt rain water tank system, to provide fresh water for washing machine and toilet usage. Water efficient dual flush toilets, tap fittings and showerheads, all reduce water consumption considerably while hot water systems are located within apartments, reducing pipe runs and minimising water wastage.
Miele appliances have been selected with quality in mind. Roger Seller basins and quality bathroom fixtures underpin the exclusivity of Black St.
