Places Victoria, a State Government sustainable urban development agency, proposed to transform a vacant site in Coburg into a vibrant, residential community. The Nicholson features high quality sustainable design, whilst adding to the diverse urban context of Coburg. The development contains a variety of apartment types to buy or rent. Hickory Developments Pty Ltd, the prime contractor for this project, and Unitised Building, the sub-contractor, built 200 apartments on this site using the UB System. The Nicholson will provide housing for about 350 people. The construction took place in June 2011. A rejuvenated streetscape is proposed along Nicholson Street with new shade tree plantings. A pedestrian friendly area proposed between the building and street, which will also provide opportunities for associated dining facilities. Average 6-Star energy efficient designed apartments incorporate solar passive design, grey water treatment and re-use, solar gas boosted hot water, drought resistant plantings and potential provision for a car share scheme.
