“There is a growing population of empty-nesters in Mosman, who want to continue living in the community but can’t because there is a lack of right-sizing dwellings,” Mr Heaton said.
“We have created 11 great, generous apartments in the centre of Mosman Junction that will take your breath away when completed.”
“Downsizers want the opportunity of prestige living in the heart of Mosman, without having to get in the car to go to shops, the doctor, or a restaurant.”
In concept plans published on their website, PBD Architects say the project features a balanced palette of materials and a well-proportioned building form.
“Designed to respond cohesively to the existing neighbourhood streetscape, it thoughtfully retains the front façade of the heritage terrace at 171 Avenue Road,” they say.
“The proposal features a restrained palette of brick walls, off-form concrete walls, composite panel cladding and rendered walls, as well as timber soffits on balconies for a natural and elegant finish.
“Furthermore, colour and material selections have been made to create transitions between inside and outside, allowing the development to add value to its surrounding neighbourhood.”
