Property developer Hesperia has appointed PACT Construction as builder for its $65 million Victoria House project at Shenton Park.
In Montario Quarter’s village precinct, the development will incorporate heritage-listed Victoria House and three new boutique buildings offering one, two and three-bedroom homes.
Hesperia director Kyle Jeavons said the company, which is a merger of Fini Group and Linc Property, is pleased to be partnering with PACT and there has been significant early interest in the mixed-use project.
“We’ve received a strong response with close to 50 per cent of the early release already sold in the lead up to the display suite opening,” he said.
“PACT has delivered some of Perth’s top residential and mixed-use projects, so we felt they were the best fit for the project.”
Initial restoration works are underway on the 1938 building set to house commercial spaces, with homes in the new Ochre, Umber and Siena buildings sitting behind and overlooking parkland.
“Residents at Victoria House will be able to step out of their front door and within a minute be in the heritage building picking up their morning coffee,” Mr Jeavons said.
“They’ll also be able to extend living spaces beyond their front door, with a lounge and barbecue alfresco area, private wine room and productive garden.”
A new display suite that opened in the heritage building’s northern wing last week allows buyers to view interiors, floorplans and renders. “Our display suite features six distinct spaces to help showcase what we have planned for this unique development – thoughtful interiors that maximise light and ventilation, shared spaces for residents and the careful integration of old and new,” Mr Jeavons said.
Victoria House is set to achieve a five-star Green Star and eight-star NatHERS rating.
“The end result will be something special for residents and the local community alike,” PACT General Manager Jason Thomson said.
Victoria House homes, including a limited number of penthouses, range from $415,000 to $2.25 million.
Construction is expected to commence by Easter next year.
