Blackburn Residences tick buyers’ boxes
Owner occupiers and investors are snapping up apartments in a new development in the heart of bustling Blackburn, based on its affordability and prime location.
About 10 per cent of the apartments have already sold at Blackburn Residences, which will be a four-storey complex comprising 53 one and two-bedroom apartments priced between $325,000 and $485,000.
Nestled among lush, landscaped gardens, the apartments at 12-14 Queen St, Blackburn will feature a statement facade in concrete and warm chocolate tones, complemented with a cascading green wall.

Inside, the apartments have been designed to maximise space, natural light and district views.
Castran Gilbert sales consultant David Tomaino said one-bedroom apartments were priced from $325,000 to $360,000, while two-bedrooms were priced from $440,000 to $485,000.
“The number one, most resounding feedback we’ve had from inquiry so far is that affordability is the biggest facet of this development,” he said.
“It is super affordable with the most you’ll pay to buy into the development being $485,000.”
The apartments range in size internally from 39.9sq m to 62.8sq m and the balconies and terraces range from 5.3sq m to 35.7sq m.
Timber floors and stone benchtops are features of the apartments, along with floor-to-ceiling glazing to invite the outdoors in and create a warm, relaxed ambience.
Streamlined kitchens provide ample storage without taking up too much space, with seamless white cabinetry with recessed handles allowing residents to add their own flair.
Each apartment also comes with one carpark and a storage unit.
“There has been no compromise, you’re still getting European Smeg appliances, stone benchtops and hardwood floors in the living areas,” Mr Tomaino said.
“What’s been most critical is that the apartments are not oversized.
“The other reason they are more affordable is that you’re not looking at two bathrooms.
“The two-bedroom apartments have one bathroom and that suits a lot of buyers.”
So far, buyers have been a mix of owner-occupiers and investors.
“There’s a high demographic of young professional people getting into the market while the affordability is there,” Mr Tomaino said.
Blackburn Residences are located just a short walk from the local train station as well as being right among the mix of shops, supermarkets, eateries and parklands.
“Blackburn is a beautiful, leafy suburb that is known for being attainable,” Mr Tomaino said.
Blackburn Residences are due to be completed mid next year.
A display suite is located at 20 Queen St, Blackburn, and is open 12.30-2pm on Saturdays and Sundays or by appointment.
