232 Wattletree

232 Wattletree Road, Malvern, VIC 3144
Completed Q4 2019 / 18 residences

This project is rich in nostalgia. It was our founding project as Fortis and our first-ever foray as developers into the Melbourne market. It also sparked a fruitful and enduring relationship with principle Melbourne architects, Ewert Leaf.

The site

We were originally researching a very different site. But after the architecture firm, Ewert Leaf, kept appearing in nearby planning applications, we decided to call them to talk through options. The advice was clear: disregard the other site and look at 232 Wattletree in Malvern. It was a beautiful north-facing site in a highly regarded area, surrounded by trees with a view down leafy Dixon Street. We bid at auction the next day, and the rest is history.

Design

The first development to carry the ‘Fortis’ name, 232 Wattletree was created to embody everything we wanted to be known for, with each detail speaking to the highest standards of quality and design. Textural materials like the dark charcoal-faced bricks, shuttered timber-look balconies and copper shingles on the penthouse façade create contrast and movement. 232 Wattletree was 100% sold prior to completion by the team at Marshall White.

Real copper cladding wears in, not out

Fire stairs as an architectural feature

Fire stairs are usually dead space, often overlooked in developments. By creating an architectural feature with the fire stairs, we could provide residents with a beautiful entrance and memorable first impression for guests. Located opposite the indoor garden, timber battens introduce softness to the corridors, their lengths highlighting the lobby’s high ceilings. Filtered natural light streams in from the lightwell and routed timber rails are beautiful to the touch.

“We’re absolutely delighted. At the feel, the light, the quality of the product, the workmanship is outstanding. And we are just absolutely thrilled with what we have purchased.”
