As a Bundoora resident for more than 15 years, Nhu Nguyen watched the progress of the Polaris 3083 development with considerable excitement. Polaris 3083 is a hub of retail, residential and commercial developments while keeping a rich sense of history with purposeful design.
Nowhere is this more clear than in the distinctive Aspire apartments, which have been retrofitted into the original 1930s structures. It was the heritage value that appealed most to Ms Nguyen when she decided to purchase one of Aspire’s heritage apartments with her husband.
“We wanted an apartment that had character and looked different to everything else on the market,”
Ms Nguyen said.
“At the same time, we also wanted to have modern facilities! The Aspire apartments ticked all our boxes.” Being adjacent to La Trobe University was a fitting choice for Ms Nguyen. She and her husband first lived in Bundoora as students before settling into fulltime jobs and starting a family. “I have always loved this area,” Ms Nguyen said.
“What’s great about the development is that it respects the past, but also renews and rejuvenates it.”
“It’s the unique heritage buildings scattered throughout Polaris 3083 that really sets it apart.” Dealcorp’s managing director David Kobritz agreed. “The Aspire heritage apartments are different to anything else on the market. It’s increasingly rare to find anything like this in Melbourne’s inner north.” The latest release of heritage apartments is Eclipse, with only 10 apartments in this development. This will be the final chance to buy into this particular style of architecture within the Polaris precinct.
