Golden Age has appointed Figurehead Construction to construct its second Glen Waverley project, Floret.

Figurehead have already kicked off construction of the 77-townhouse project on Ferntree Gully Road, which was approved by the local council just over a year ago.

Golden Age has sold 80 per cent of its Stage 1 release with new park front lots brought forward to cater to demand. Within a day of release, 40 per cent were snapped up, demonstrating the need for architecturally-designed townhomes in the growing suburb.

Designed by leading architectural firm Rothelowman, the Floret townhomes are designed to be sensitive to the site’s existing context, while capitalising on an opportunity to deliver an outstanding architectural response that will set a new standard for townhouses within the area.

Figurehead Group Founder & Managing Director Joe Grasso said the construction group is excited by the opportunity to deliver the Floret townhome project, alongside Golden Age.

“Their commitment to a conservative and robust design and delivery model aligns with our obligation to our key stakeholders, the end users of our product," Grasso said.

Figurehead Construction has specialised in the delivery of townhomes since its inception in 2007, and for us, it’s important in this challenging climate that we partner with a reputable team, and take on projects we have a track record of delivering to a high standard."

Golden Age Founder and Managing Director Jeff Xu said Figurehead Construction is known for producing results of the highest calibre, something Golden Age Group strives for in the final product of their developments.

Figurehead has an extensive and diverse portfolio of more than 100 completed projects, all with unwavering quality," Xu said

"Collectively, we are eager to deliver a thorough and proactive approach to this project as it is one that will lift the standard within the area."

By using the same architecture and landscape team (Aspect Studios) as Sky Garden, Golden Age's first project in Glen Waverley above The Glen Shopping Centre, Golden Age’s project will seek to put the community at the heart, offering an array of resident amenities, complemented by extensive gardens in a secure neighbourhood that is ideal for raising families.

The layouts of each townhouse are conducive to multi-generational living with ensuite ground-level bedrooms featuring courtyard access for greater privacy, while the kitchen and living areas serve as connection points.

In response to post-pandemic lifestyles which see more professionals working from home, the three-level townhouses offer much-needed separation from the ground-floor offices and higher-level living areas.

Construction is scheduled for completion in Q1 2025.
