Hunt Club Village cements standard for community living
The Hunt Club Village has delivered the final piece of the lifestyle puzzle for residents of the Hunt Club Estate. The much anticipated shopping centre has cemented the standard for community living in Melbourne's south-east.
Featuring state-of-the-art schools, a children's centre and a retirement village, the wider Hunt Club Estate is founded on a range of amenities and services within a natural environment. A sense of community is fostered through the surrounding wetlands and parks featuring pathways for cycling and walking.
Completed in 2015, Stage One of the contemporary shopping hub comprises 9,000m2 of retail facilities prominently located on the perimeter of the estate, within close walking distance for residents.
The one level centre comprises a 4,200m2 Woolworths, 1,580m2 Aldi, 1,700m2 Dan Murphy’s, approximately 1,950m2 of specialty retail and central on-grade parking for 430 cars.
Principal Andrew Mackenzie said Buchan’s design for the Village is inspired by the broader estate.
"The design for the centre seeks to integrate with the Hunt Club Estate’s strong sense of community and affinity with nature.
"The prominent use of high quality tactile finishes and natural timber and stone references the surrounding natural environment and provides a consistent and recognisable identity to residents."
Stage Two of the development is expected to commence shortly, further expanding on the array of retail amenities.
