The Mondrian | 10-storeys; 30m | Residential, commercial
Return to the Construction Projects list.
The Mondrian is located at the corner of Johnson and Cook streets. Designed to appear like a Mondrian-inspired painting (a grid of squares painted with three primary colours), the tower features colour queues and vibrancy not common with development projects in Victoria. The building consists of 93 residential units with a groundfloor commercial base.
Developer Alpha Developments purchased the property in the late ’00’s after a previous proposal by a different development firm fell through.

De Hoog/Keirulf have done a few "stand alone" buildings now and I think they're good at designing buildings that don't have a "bad" side. You know, the awkward-looking blank side that's never seen in the glossy renderings. This building must have been a challenge as the massing and height was pretty much maxed out meaning all they had to work with was a big cube. Even the parking entrance--in some projects a horrible gaping maw--is clean and simple. Can't wait to see ground floor activity.

Any bets on how long until the first retail space is occupied? It looks like they are having trouble selling/leasing them.

No kidding there are so many place in the CRD that have been built that there are not enough buyers in the market place to fill them and
Maybe the prices will drop across the board for all the available units

I would bet that it fills before 601 Herald but I could be wrong...
