Developer Unveils New Glimpses of $450m ‘Above Mall’ Project

Melbourne-based developer Golden Age Group has released new images of its ambitious Sky Garden development which will sit atop The Glen shopping centre.

The development’s external design, conceptualised by architects Rothelowman, comprises three towers that will stand 18, 10 and 11 storeys, rising from the retail podium of the shopping centre.

The 555-apartment project, in Melbourne’s south-east suburb Glen Waverly, will include 4,000sq m of landscaping designed by Aspect studios.

The project incorporates three design firms, including DKO Architecture.

The Glen Shopping Centre is currently undergoing its own $460 million renovation by retail giant Vicinity Centres.

Last year, Vicinity sold the air rights to Jeff Xu’s Golden Age Group to develop the residential apartment offering above the shopping centre.

Sky Garden

One-bedroom apartments at Golden Age’s development start at $480,000, with three-bedroom apartments around the $1.1 million mark.

The Aspect studio designed gardens will be set on the rooftop of The Glen, with a series of green spaces split across a northern and southern garden.

 Architects Rothelowman designed the project's external facade.

Xu founded Golden Age in 2006. The company has a $4.2 billion development portfolio with another $1.5 billion worth of projects in the pipeline.

The developer, which is known for its high density developments, recently announced an expansion into the house and land residential market in a bid to diversify its portfolio.

Golden Age snapped up a 21 hectare Rockbank site, 30 kilometres from Melbourne CBD.

It has plans for a 377 land lot project with a gross development value of $120 million.

Construction of the Sky Garden three tower development is scheduled to commence in 2019.
