A Hickory Construction Project
Ark Back to Search
Limited space and access issues created opportunity for innovation
Ark is a 10 storey mixed-use development in the heart of inner city Richmond. It features nine levels with 183 one, two and three bedroom apartments, gymnasium and theatre for residents, three basement car park levels and retail tenancies over two levels.
As the front of this development is located along a busy commercial strip, Bridge Road, it was crucial that this development frontage complement the distinctive Bridge Road streetscape.
The façade to the entrance and space around the site was limited by tramlines running at the front of the building along Bridge Road, and access to the site from another block Hickory purchased prior to construction was restricted by Council.
Location: 243 Bridge Road, Richmond
