THE DeHavilland apartments were named after Geoffrey De Havilland, an English aviation innovator who built fast, lightweight wooden aircraft.
The project’s developers also sought to be a pioneers and set new standards for apartment construction.
The complex aims to be both sustainable and stylish, combining sophistication and thoughtful design with modern and environmentally sustainable building principles and practices.
It leads the way in using a timber construction method and also has double-stacked car bays, electric car charging to parking bays, bicycle parking, a car sharing pick-up point and solar system providing an estimated 18 per cent power saving.
In keeping with the history of Midland, the residences have an industrial chic/loft-style aesthetic with high ceilings, exposed pipes and black accent features such as benchtops, cabinetry, door frames, tapware, electrical switches and light fittings.
They have open-plan living/dining/kitchen areas that open to balconies and each home has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, including the master with walk-in robe and ensuite.
Laundry facilities and an internal storeroom are also included.
Not only is the design environmentally conscious, the location supports walkability, with large and small shops, the train station, cafes and Heritage Workshops Precinct all within a few hundred metres of the development.
The DeHavilland is almost complete, with titles expected this month, allowing purchasers to move right in.
