Ivanhoe Gardens vertical village ’the fanciest thing’ to hit suburb
A 21st century village with hotel-like amenities and sweeping views will be built in one of Ivanhoe’s most elevated positions.
Located 96m above sea level, construction at Ivanhoe Gardens, where Bell St meets Myrtle St and Linden Ave, will start late in September.
Developer Blue Earth Group has joined forces with CHT Architects, Sora Interior Architects and landscaper Jack Merlo for the opulent 232-apartment, two-building project.

In the tradition of New York’s Gramercy Park, a leafy central garden with built-in seating pods, lawns and timber boardwalks separates the six-storey Everleigh building and 12-storey Bloomsbury building.
Three Sixty Property Group project executive Michael Hogan said it was a new standard for the area.
“This is the fanciest thing the upper east side of Melbourne has seen,” he said.
“Residents will enjoy concierge service from 7am to 7pm, a fine dining restaurant and a private dining room where they can serve their guests from the restaurant via a servery window or use the chef’s kitchen themselves.”
A cinema provides for a night in, as does room service from the restaurant.
Other features include a fitness centre, wellness hub, squash court, games room and golf simulator, dog wash and a car wash.
Mr Hogan said 60 per cent of the apartments had sold, with a lot of interest from medical professionals working at nearby hospitals.
Inside, open-plan living areas integrated with balconies and terraces join European kitchen appliances, Caesarstone finishes, timber floors and floor-to-ceiling windows for views to the CBD and Macedon Ranges.
