THE SELLING POINT
North-facing apartments in a boutique building in the centre of Box Hill, with park and mountain views and landscaped rooftop amenities including a lap pool, gym, lounge and indoor/outdoor dining with barbecues.
Rising 20 storeys above the historic Box Hill Gardens, the newly released Central Park is a boutique development in central Box Hill with park, mountain and city views and deluxe landscaped rooftop amenities.
It’s just two minutes’ walk from Box Hill Gardens and Box Hill and Epworth Hospitals and five minutes from Box Hill’s vibrant centre, described as Melbourne’s up-and-coming second CBD. It’s a key destination for Asian cuisine and fresh food, specialty retail, services and education.
Box Hill Central also includes Melbourne’s largest eastern rail hub and tram services.
Next door is the Box Hill RSL, which recently completed a multimillion-dollar entertainment and dining revamp.
At 12-14 Nelson Road, nearly all of the 168 apartments in Central Park’s 20 levels will face north thanks to innovative design from award-winning SJB Architects. There’s a cafe next to the residents’ lobby, with further ground-level shops and three podium levels of commercial tenancies along Nelson Road.
The apartments include a wide range of one and two-bedroom layouts designed for optimal light and views. Some have studies and internal living areas range from 47 to 84 square metres. There are also numerous opportunities to combine plans to form generous three-bedroom residences with internal living areas of up to 132 square metres. A deep setback above the building’s podium gives level-four apartments generous courtyard terraces of up to 62.5 square metres.
A series of framed elements form a dynamic cascading pattern across the building’s facade and provide a strong and distinguished architectural character. These framed elements combine multiple levels into single-design components and provide solar control and privacy while framing views across Box Hill Gardens.
Sales manager Lucas Giannotti says there’s strong interest from downsizers looking for larger three-bedroom residences in a boutique building where residents have greater access to shared amenities.
“With fewer apartments, our buyers know they can use shared facilities more easily. It’s also clear to buyers that Central Park is designed for owner-occupiers.”
Apartments have parking and storage in the secure basement levels, high-speed data connections and reverse cycle air-conditioning with the option of additional air-conditioning units. Project completion is anticipated in early 2019.

Central Park is two minutes’ walk from Box Hill Gardens with its award-winning recreation zone and one kilometre circuit; trams and Box Hill and Epworth Hospitals and a stroll from central Box Hill’s fresh food market, shops, restaurants, train and bus interchange. Box Hill High School and Our Lady of Sion College are within easy walking distance.
Central Park’s rooftop offers residents opportunities to entertain, relax and recharge with panoramic views.
Residents can entertain in lounge areas and spacious indoor and outdoor dining areas with a full-size gourmet kitchen and two built-in barbecues; and can recharge in the rooftop wellness centre overlooking Box Hill Gardens, including yoga and meditation space, a lap pool, sauna, steamroom, spa and indoor and outdoor gyms.
Award-winning landscape architects Tract have designed extensive planting and vegetation around the rooftop’s perimeter, as well as lush grassy areas to create a park in the sky.
Central Park buyers have the choice of three interior palettes linked to the building’s subtle exterior scheme of warm greys, champagne and bronze to govern tones for timber floors, tiling, wool-blend carpets, stone benchtops and seamless integrated joinery.
The North Wood palette has rich chocolate, smoky charcoal and warm bronze hues; the neutral minimalist North Meadow palette includes white, grey, pale timber and a touch of gold.
The Central Park upgrade palette combines warm earthy tones, subdued greys and dark accents to striking effect.
Central Park kitchens are designed to seamlessly integrate within open-plan living areas using reconstituted or natural stone benchtops in grey, chocolate or white and timber laminate joinery and metal-framed, fluted glass cupboards above the cooktop work bench.
The kitchen splashback is in natural stone to match the interior palette and larger apartment layouts have an island bench with designer lighting suspended overhead.
The appliances include a Miele or similar gas cooktop, electric oven and integrated rangehood with an integrated dishwasher or dish drawer.
