Deal Corp redesigns McKinnon to suit post COVID-19 lifestyles
November 16, 2020
Flexible floor plans have been added to the top floor of Dealcorp’s MCKN development in south-east Melbourne, which is being sold through Projects by Buxton Real Estate’s Heath Thompson.
Change has come from the top at one of Melbourne’s emerging residential developments, which has been altered to provide more flexible space for buyers.
Developer Dealcorp has redesigned the highest floor of its MCKN project in the Melbourne suburb of McKinnon to give buyers a variety floor plans that can change to suit their needs.
All options have expansive balconies and views which enhance the feeling of space and encouraging airflow, while the placement of the rooms allows for three-bedrooms, two-bedrooms, plus study or additional living space
The site benefits from proximity to McKinnon Secondary College, which is one of the highest performing public schools in Melbourne. There has already been a strong response to the MCKN from the market, with 50 per cent of residences in the building already sold.
Selling agent and Director of Projects by Buxton, Heath Thompson, said while COVID-19 had created many challenges for developers, Deal Corp had taken the opportunity to listen to the needs of the public and implement a design that catered to a post-pandemic lifestyle.
“We were flexible enough to be able to make a change to that top floor and create some spaces that allow people to live in a different way to what we have seen previously,” he said.
“A three-bedroom apartment could become a two-bedroom residence with a home office or additional living space, depending on the user.
“We’ve put a lot of effort into making sure there is a variety of options available for the end user.”
MCKN is currently being constructed by Hamilton Marino and due for completion in the third quarter of next year.
