Drummond Place offers apartment retirement accommodation in Carlton.
It is a building which both responds to the character and possibilities of the place and creates opportunities for the surrounding public domain to be embellished and further enjoyed.
It is therefore a place which does not seek to create a gated environment but, rather, one in which individual safety, privacy and comfort and be attained by the residents while offering greater interaction with their surrounding neighbours.
Drummond Place forms a part of an overall Wellbeing Precinct being created by Australian Unity.
The site is located adjacent Drummond Street, and its eastern boundary faces a new park formed as part of the Living Carlton development. Reeves and Colgan Streets are the other street frontages for the site.
The Living Carlton development plan applies to the precinct within which the site is located. That development plan describes various influences and requirements, within the overall control of the local planning scheme.
Drummond Place is designed to knit itself to the park, creating excellent passive surveillance from ground level communal facilities and, though a pergola structure and landscaping, to actively embellish the western edge of the park.
The building contains 91 apartments over eight floors. The ground floor contains building entries, communal areas and servicing zones. There are three basement carparks.
