AIR Apartments / Rothe Lowman

Rothe Lowman Architects‘ 18 storey tall AIR Apartments will be the first true high rise residential apartment building ever built in Coburg. The tower is comprised of 259 apartments and will bring “high density living to one of Melbourne’s five designated activity centers.” The tower is expected to be one of the most striking buildings in the city. “Its dynamic new architectural profile and sculptural façade foreshadows a renewed sense of place, taking Coburg’s exciting transformation to unscaled heights,” explained the architects.

More about the AIR Apartments after the break.

AIR will provide a new urban lifestyle for young people and young families in one of Melbourne’s fastest growing suburbs.  Close to public transportation hubs, AIR has been specifically designed to meet the current demand in Melbourne for quality affordable residential living options.

AIR is also environmentally conscious as wind turbines, solar hot water, thermal chimneys to induce cross flow ventilation, and double glazing on all south facing windows to reduce heat gain, are incorporated into the building.

” Demand is far outstripping supply and as a result we are seeing rental growth and capital growth in the sub $600,000 market…We have partnered with leading architects to bring to Coburg a cutting edge design that will raise the bar in apartment living for many years to come,” said Kurt Wilkinson, Valad Head of Property – Asia Pacific.

Studios are priced from $220,000, one bedrooms from $257,000 and two bedrooms from $420,000 with floor plans averaging 62sqm.
