The New Heart of Vic Park. 

Vic Quarter is a landmark development in Victoria Park that sets a new standard for apartment living in the locality.

The site could not be better located in terms of amenity within the immediate vicinity.  Within a 5 minute walk are the Victoria Park Hotel, Victoria Park Bowls Club, John McMillan Park, Victoria Park Library and Community Centre, The Park Centre shopping precinct as well as a number of shopping and entertainment opportunities along the commercial strip.

Hillam architects and Celsius Developments worked closely in conjunction with the Design Review Committee to progress ideas for the proposed development.

In response to the significance of the site, the building was conceived as an iconic gateway building which would serve as a wayfinding point in both directions. The building could then become a keystone for the developing District Centre serving as a catalyst for future development around the intersection progressing towards the desired future character.

As such, the mass of the building was designed to increase toward the corner of the site, creating a presence along both streetscapes. A double volume tenancy on the corner would provide activation at ground level along with public artwork and semi-public spaces. This tenancy is now the new Perth home of the Boston Brewing Co.

The upper levels of the building will consist of 105 apartments made up of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom formats as well as four exclusive Penthouse apartments offering fantastic views in all directions.

Balcony depths, façade treatments and screening elements interplay against each other adding complexity to the façade. At the human scale, materiality and patterning come into play providing interest at the ground level.

Resort-quality facilities on offer to residents include luscious gardens, a 13-metre lap pool, fully equipped air-conditioned gym and barbeque pavilion. In addition to landscaped entertainment decks on Level 3 and Level 5. Where residents can utilise barbeques or dine al fresco in the evening, drinking in the sweeping panoramas as the city’s lights and the star-filled night sky over the Perth cityscape vie for your attention.

Vic Quarter received a Special Commendation for Precinct Rejuvenation at the 2021 West Australian Apartment Advocacy Awards
