249-265 Queens Parade (249QP) is a wonderfully unique residence in Fitzroy North, set amongst a flourishing community enriched with creative arts and heritage listed Victorian homes and shop-fronts.
Brought to life by Salta Properties and celebrated architects Fieldwork, the vision for 249QP was inspired through a desire to create a building that encompasses the heritage, vibrant culture and natural landscape of the northern city fringe.
Located next to the famous Merri Creek, 249QP’s design took inspiration from basalt rock, a stunningly raw material found within the creek bed and beneath the foundations of the building itself.
Across its 14-levels, the building’s design maintains a subtle relationship with its heritage context, achieved through encompassing traditional designs such as ribbed concrete which pays homage to the corrugation of the metal roofs from the original Victorian shop fronts.
Inside, 249QP welcomes you home with an interior layout that exudes warmth and comfort through the considered use of spotted gum timber panels, warm ambient lighting, luxurious banquette seating upholstery and bluestone tiles on the floor. Not only is the space charming, it also provides residents with a functional foyer enabling a modern working life for those who need a quiet space outside the office.
Featuring 92 premium apartments, available in one, two and three bed configurations, 249QP offers buyers a unique choice of stylish, sleek residences in both ‘warm’ and ‘fresh’ design options, created to utilise the natural light, space and captivating views of the surrounding suburbs.
The awe-inspiring design continues with the addition of a generously landscaped rooftop terrace, envisaged to create a communal space accessible to residents throughout the year. Here, the enchanting vista of uninterrupted 240 degree views of the city skyline and surrounds can be enjoyed by all.
Joachim Quino Holland, Director of Fieldwork, said that the aim was to create a building that encompassed the warmth of nature yet aged gracefully, using numerous environmentally sustainable practices featured in the design, build and future operation of 249QP.
“The interior design was inspired by elements in Australian nature; the lobby showcases this through the contrasting warmth of Australian timbers and the fresh touches of the bluestone floors.
“Use of robust and natural materials, such as brick and concrete will ensure the building ages well and continues to present well in the future,” said Quino.
249QP is truly a one of a kind quality development with many apartments afforded never to be built out views, promoting a lifestyle that combines the breathtaking landscape, rich Victorian charm and modern progressive heartbeat of Fitzroy North.
Come and celebrate the Grand Opening of our 249QP display suite Saturday 22nd February from 11am – 3.30pm.
