Portman Street Serviced Apartments, Oakleigh
Conveniently located in the heart of Oakleigh, and with Chadstone Shopping Centre close by, the serviced apartments are also positioned across the road from Oakleigh Central shops and public transport is within walking distance. To be run by the Punthill Apartment Hotel Group, 1-2 bedroom self-contained apartments, a total of 55 apartments, will be available for short term and long stay bookings. Ideal for holiday makers, conference attendees and guests requiring temporary accommodation.
The site has a heritage overlay with an existing Spanish Mission style building that will serve as the frontage. The lobby, retail area and conference rooms will occupy this building. The front of house will connect to a car park at the rear, with the serviced apartments situated above the car park. The 5 storey development has been designed to be respectful of the existing heritage building, aiming to be a backdrop for it whilst expressing its own architectural language that embraces the character of the neighbouring streetscape.
