Shakespeare Group is committed to creating homes where people will feel a part of a community, and its new development on St Kilda Road is a prime example.

St Boulevard comprises one part of the new development and is on track to be completed and ready for move-in by late 2019. The appointed builder, a leading Australian construction company, has already made significant headway, so now Shakespeare Group and selling agent Colliers can focus on ensuring the end result — a well-run and well-maintained community.

“With all these large projects, I think the key is that you’ve got to appoint the right owners corporation and building manager,” Brett Griffith, Director at Colliers, says. “Once they’re completed, you’ve got to ensure all the amenities are kept at a very high level.”

Along with managing the security of the building, the owners corporation at St Boulevard will maintain the building’s extensive on-site amenities. From the verdant garden sanctuary to the expansive lagoon-shaped swimming pools, there will be a committee of people to take care of it all.

Residents can have as much, or as little input as they’d like. Residents can be as proactive as they like as a volunteer on the committee, but regardless of status everyone still gets a say in the important issues. “The residents will really decide how that plays out once the first body corporate meeting occurs,” Griffith says. “That’s the great thing about these kinds of precincts – that everyone gets a say, everyone’s vote is equal and everyone can drive their own destiny,” Griffiths says.

The community at St Boulevard is centred around a lush oasis. Outside, in addition to the lagoon pool, there are sun lounges, outdoor barbecue pods and children’s play areas. Indoors, residents can relax in exclusive lounges and dining rooms with fully-equipped kitchens or catch a movie in the theatre. The spa, sauna, and steam room in the wellness retreat is a great place to spend some time in quiet contemplation or enjoying a luxury spa day with friends.

From within, apartments achieve views over Fawkner Park, the Royal Botanic Gardens and Melbourne city skyline in one direction, while west-facing homes offer scenes of Albert Park Lake and Port Phillip Bay.

Designed by award-winning architect firm Elenberg Fraser, the collection of homes at St Boulevard showcases natural materials and sophisticated textures that blend classic and contemporary design perfectly. In the kitchen, raw finishes juxtapose against the cutting-edge integrated appliances while bedrooms are an idyllic retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

St Kilda is a tightly-held and prestigious location — with good reason. It’s a highly liveable area with modern conveniences and transport never far away.

Minutes from St Boulevard’s doorstep, residents can take advantage of a range of independent retailers and designer outlets. Between shops, the warm and inviting cafés and restaurants are a great place to stop and refuel.

And just across Queens Road, less than a fifteen-minute walk away, the Albert Park Golf Course and surrounding reserves beckon. Here, locals can be found jogging along Lakeside Drive against the backdrop of the lake’s sparkling water, while kids explore the playgrounds. It’s an area full of a community vibe, and there’s always something to do or see.

In addition to these recreation amenities, St Boulevard lies within close proximity to the Alfred Hospital, and St Vincent’s Private Hospital is only a 15 minute drive away.

The city, less than 5km away, is easily accessible via frequently running trams, or via State Route 24 and Punt Road. In the other direction, it’s a half hour walk to the beach. It’s rare to find apartments which offer the best of both, which is just one of the reasons St Boulevard residences are selling so quickly.
