A month after being granted a permit to build the largest development outside Melbourne’s CBD, the developers of Whitehorse Towers in Box Hill have announced that all 511 apartments have been sold.

Developed by the Asian Pacific Group, the mixed-use development comprises residential units, a hotel, and retail outlets. Designed by Melbourne architect Peddle Thorpe, the development incorporates luxury dwellings that boast impressive views of the city. The dwellings were designed to utilize all hotel services, including room service and housekeeping.

The project features two towers, the taller of which stands at 115 meters. Inside the shorter 84 meter tower is a 100-room hotel, part of the 5-star Art Series Hotel Group. This will be the group’s seventh hotel. They intend to expand to ten hotels by 2017.

William Deague, CEO of Asian Pacific Group and founder of the Art Series Hotel Group said: “After 18 months of planning, we are pleased to have witnessed such interest in the development. We look forward to integrating into the local community, bringing our Art Series signature twist. We hope to assist in attracting more business to the area and promote all that this thriving hub has to offer. []
