Hickory and CBR Development Group have celebrated the ‘topping out’ of Promenade, an elegant apartment complex and commercial hub in the heart of Box Hill.
Councillor Andrew Davenport of Whitehorse City Council was in attendance, alongside Managing Director of Hickory, George Abraham, Manager of CBR Development Group, Xiong Chen, and President of the Asian Business Association of Whitehorse, Bihong Wang. An olive tree planting ceremony and traditional lion dance marked the major milestone.
Hickory has a strong presence in Box Hill with a growing portfolio of large-scale residential builds. With Whitehorse Trio and East Central Tower located just a short walk away, Promenade is Hickory’s third mixed-use project in the area, elevating the city’s skyline. Upon completion, the three builds will bring a wealth of new living, retail, and commercial spaces to the booming area.
The premium mixed-use development, which comprises 199 apartments and 1,200 square metres of commercial space, is being built by Hickory and designed by Peddle Thorpe in partnership with John Patrick Landscape Architects.
The building’s bespoke apartments encompass luxurious, hotel-style living areas, fit with European appliances and French gold finishes. The apartments boast views of the city, mountains, and Port Phillip Bay.
Complete with a cinema, gym, and sky garden, residents have access to convenient lifestyle facilities at their fingertips, including a range of retail spaces in the ground lobby.
Located in the heart of Box Hill, Promenade is just a stone’s throw away from Box Hill Gardens, the central shopping centre, Epworth Eastern Hospital and Box Hill train station.
George Abraham, Managing Director of Hickory, said: “Our work with CBR Development Group has allowed for a smooth, efficient construction process with a state-of-the-art result.
“We are beyond thrilled to see the final stages of the project come together and look forward to seeing the impact it has on its users as we create better places for the current and future community of Box Hill.”
