Hamilton Marino has been announced as preferred contractor for the Ardency Kennedy Place retirement community development project on the former Channel Nine site in Richmond.
The project, which is being developed by Lendlease, has been named for the ‘king’ of Australian television and Channel Nine stalwart, Graham Kennedy.
The precinct, designed by Bates Smart, will comprise 116 one, two and three-bedroom apartments over nine storeys, and boast shared amenities such as a cinema, library, community garden, function spaces and a wellness centre with pool, gym and pilates and yoga studios.
Residents will also have access to an on-site cafe, health, beauty and massage services, medical services and a roof terrace with CBD views.
As part of the wider development of the Bendigo Street site, 31 private terraces will also be constructed for residential buyers, as well as a Catholic Healthcare aged care facility.
Hamilton Marino has extensive experience in the high-density apartment sector, having delivered numerous projects valued above $40 million.
The builder is currently constructing a number of high-profile residential and hotel developments across Melbourne, including the QVM Munro project at the Queen Victoria Market, the $100M River One & River Front apartments in Footscray and the 40-storey Oakwood Premier hotel in Fisherman’s Bend.
This latest win follows a string of recent appointments for the Melbourne builder, including the contract for the notorious Continental Hotel in Sorrento, which they won in September last year.
Hamilton Marino also entered into a joint venture with CHT Architects and Urban Develop to design and construct a boutique hotel in Collingwood.
