This project is in a prime beachside suburb that is one of the closest in proximity to the CBD of Melbourne. The property is located less than 200 metres from the water line; it deserved, as the developers have stated, "a product that showcased the contemporary design with impact."

The developers and architect liked the solid and authentic look of the blocks selected for the project, as a strong, industrial aesthetic was sought for the development. The blocks have proved to be the right choice, given the final result and look achieved. The product blends in and respects the existing historic streetscape, synonymous with the bluestone alleyways that were once access ways for trades like the milkman and baker of a bygone era. Historic laneways are now being embraced and enhanced by the use of new, bold materials like polished block, bringing them respectfully into a new era.
