Caulfield’s Fabric Residences to Blend Fast Web with Honey and Veg

News & Insights
A new Caulfield development is set to blend homegrown vegies and honey with internet speeds faster than the NBN.

The Fabric Residences hit the market this weekend and, with a build including solar panels and electric vehicle charging, they would set “a new standard”, Marshall White director Leonard Teplin said.

Cera Stribley architects designed the Schachter Group project to blend a curving brick facade at its lower levels with angular design elements and expansive glass for the upper floors.

“Half the building has views to the city and the other half to the bay,” Mr Teplin said.

The building will have an average 6.5-star NatHERS energy efficiency rating with some apartments as high as 8.9 stars. They will also have rooftop solar panels, vegetable patches and beehives, as well as landscaped green spaces around the building. Lightning Broadband will install fibre optic cable directly to the building and use its private network to offer speeds up to 1000MB a second for businesses, and up to 500MB for home use.

An enviable location walking distance to shops, eateries, transport and schools rounds out the shared features. Interiors include marble surfaces, timber floors, European appliances, a fireplace, freestanding bathtubs and walk-in wardrobes. The combination had 27 prospective buyers registered a week ahead of the property’s official launch date on December 4.

One-bedroom homes range from 50-55sq m in size and cost $445,000-$495,000, two-bedroom homes span 70-100sq m and are priced from $660,000-$1.05m, while three-bedroom floorplans are up to 180sq m for between $1.1m and $1.895m.

The build will start early 2022.
