At a glance
The site is 843m2 in size, located at Ferntree Gully. There are many dual occupancies and 3 townhouses development precedence in the area. The site is directly opposite a commercial retail plus warehouse; therefore, feasibility study was performed for various development forms including commercial development, detached 3 beds plus townhouses, attached 4 beds plus townhouses and attached 3 townhouses.
After review of financial and construction cost the owner who is also a builder decided to go with the 3 townhouses development to fit an extra tenancy on small block usually suitable for dual occupancy if subdivided.
Adjacent to Commercial Zone
It can be a constraint but also an opportunity for us to explore smaller housing options. As next to commercial zone means the targeted residents might be shifted from large families to small and younger families and on site parking demand is less as so close to works and shops in the commercial zone.
No Neighbour on the North Side
No over shadowing and overlooking issue on the North, only a council Right of Way (ROW); able to design large windows and courtyards on the North with maximum solar gain and a glimpse of city skyline view.
The client is a builder developer, it will maximise his investment’s profitability if more units can be fit on the land as the cost for a 4-bed dual occupancy townhouse is almost the same as a 2-3 beds 3 townhouse development; but 3 townhouses’s market value is much higher.
