Two apartments emerge at ‘sold out’ South TerraceRead more
Just weeks before M/28 Apartments by Match on South Terrace is complete and becomes ‘move in ready’, two luxury apartments have been made available in a complex that ‘sold out’ within months of release.
M/28 is a mixed-use building comprising of just 20 boutique apartments on the popular South Terrace coffee strip. The building is deliberately designed to present as understated with naturally inspired materials and palette, which take inspiration from the Fremantle culture and nearby heritage-listed community hot-spot, The Local.
Mr Lloyd Clark, Managing Director of Match parent company M/Group, said the decision to release the remaining two apartments was not originally planned by the company, but provides new opportunities for those wanting to live in arguably Fremantle’s most cosmopolitan location.
“The apartments attracted overwhelming interest when we released them. It was clear that the opportunity to live in such beautifully designed apartments in the heart of Fremantle’s busy café strip was extremely attractive,” he said.
“No doubt there were many disappointed parties who missed out on securing an apartment in this tightly held location, which makes the current release an even more exciting prospect for many.”
The apartments have been designed in collaboration with respected and award-winning architects David Barr Architects and Cameron Chisholm Nicol Architects.
Every design detail has been considered to deliver an understated and functional design statement that reflects contemporary coastal living with high quality finishes, such as timber, engineered stone benchtops and concrete-porcelain tiles. The apartments also achieve a comparable 4-star Green Star rating; an aspect sighted as extremely important to people living in the area.
M/28’s exterior façade continues the natural theme which incorporate timber screens. This feature is reflected in the lobby with timber ceilings and concrete-look finishes.
The property also includes commercial sites on the ground floor, offering a potential ‘live and work’ option with an extremely visible South Terrace street frontage.
“The release of the last two apartments at M/28 by Match and availability of commercial space on the ground floor opens a lot of doors for those who really want to embed themselves into the Fremantle culture,” Mr Clark continued.
“This new release is without question a highly attractive proposition that is unlikely to last very long.”
The site falls within the development zone approved for a street upgrade and revitalisation by the City of Fremantle. This includes additional trees, landscaping and upgrade to footpaths between South Street and Douro Road.
M/28 by Match is due for completion in June, and is open for viewing now.

Sizing up the future of your land choiceRead more
In the search for a perfect place to build your first home, land size is of course an important factor. However, in isolation, the size of a homesite will not necessarily determine its value in the short or long-term future. Luckily for first home buyers, there are a range of options in the current marketplace that will deliver both land size and investment prospects.
While location and budget are major contributors when it comes to the land purchase decision-making process, few often appreciate the importance of finding an environment that will not merely fulfil the owner’s lifestyle goals, but also increase the value potential of the property for future sae or rental.
Ironically, your dream location might be the best investment you’ll ever make.
By ensuring the home environment appeals to your own personal desires, with features that help it ‘stand out’ in a competitive marketplace, you’re actually giving yourself more flexibility for when life changes might occur in the longer term.
Monument is a boutique land development company that currently has three land options available – each at various stages of development and all with something particularly unique on offer.
Hamelin Park, Secret Harbour
A home by the beach
What Monument does particularly well is introduce land estates in existing communities. When Hamelin Park was introduced in the established suburb of Secret Harbour, the estate was fast-tracked to meet demand for the land.
Today, Hamelin Park is some 80% sold out and literally surrounded by community infrastructure. As stage three comes on the market, savvy buyers will be able to pick up some ‘ready to build’ titled lots from just $179,000 for 331m2 to $200,000 for 531m2 only 3 minutes to the beach.
A home with a spectacular view
Located in the established suburb of Beeliar, Atop takes cues from the environment to create an elevated and interesting landscape for your home, adorned with natural materials, walking paths and majestic Tuart Trees.
Atop offers stunning ocean views and has recently completed its first stage of development, which is already 30% sold out in just 2 months. Monument is currently offering titled lots from 410sq.m to 494sq.m priced from $259,000.
The Wedge, Wellard North
Exclusive release of land
The Wedge is an exclusive pocket of land located in one of Perth’s most well-located and well-serviced areas. Although it is only in its early stages of development with the release of an initial 17lots, the homesites are larger than the market norm, and are located within private estate full of lifestyle features and adjacent to a nature reserve. Construction works are underway and Stage 1 titles will be available mid-2019.
Monument prides itself on its capacity to deliver a well-considered development design that introduce something unique and special into the marketplace. What that means to first home buyers is an enhanced future resale or rental prospect that also ticks any personal lifestyle goal you might have.
Working in close partnership with Western Australia’s leading first home buyer project builders also means you can get access to home packages tailored to your specific needs.

Saving for your dream homeRead more
Without question, making sure you dive into the current market before prices begin to rise should be a top priority for first home buyers, but it’s also about finding a personal lifestyle fit.
Looking for a location with well-established community infrastructure is often more important than the size of land itself. Smaller more boutique developments can sometimes see greater price growth into the future than much larger projects on the outer regions, even when they may initially appear more price competitive, make sure you do your homework on the area.
It is also important to understand how much you can borrow and your budget. Working closely with a mortgage broker can quickly provide you these answers and the right loan for you to get into your dream home easily.
Artwork to give urban value to Mount Lawley ApartmentsRead more
A mural created by renowned artist, Kyle Hughes-Odgers, on the wall of the newly complete M/25 Apartments by Match could mean more to property owners than a recognisable addition to the Mount Lawley streetscape.
The large-scale contemporary street-based work located on the corner of Walcott and Burt Streets Mount Lawley, may inherently turn the boutique urban residence into a signature icon, and potentially result in greater market interest and higher returns on investment.
Mr Lloyd Clark, Managing Director of Match parent company, M/Group, believes stunning artwork helps a property to stand out and could add significant value once entrenched into the community psyche.
“Many people are drawn to signature properties; residences that are unique and cannot be duplicated in any way. Architecture and artwork are two of the primary factors that can achieve impact on the streetscape and, therefore, recognition,” he said.
“Add to this a prominent location that instils the building into the community fabric, and you get a limited supply of unique apartments that many would be proud to call their own. That’s what has been created at M/25 by Match.”
The concept for the M/25 by Match artwork is based around the core idea of ‘exploration’, shown through the use of narrative based, pattern and abstract imagery.
The artwork aims to reflect the vibrancy of Mount Lawley with strong links to young contemporary art and culture, and bringing in ideas of identity, community, journey and growth contributing and adding to a strong sense of place within the site location.
Artist Kyle Hughes-Odgers said he wants the viewer to interpret their own experience from the ideas into the final work.
“I don’t paint literal outcomes, but I do base the work on a specific concept. I prefer to only tell the viewer about the concept if they ask and find artwork to be much more engaging if it has room for the viewer to connect or be challenged by the final piece,” he said.
“I think public art is important in all cities as it adds creativity and humanity to the built environment.”
Mr Clark said that M/25 by Match had already sold 50% of its apartments prior to completion and suggests the property and artwork installation will attract a lot more interest now that the doors are open and apartments are ‘move in ready’.
“Match has earned its stripes in producing well-considered, design-centric boutique apartments in places people want to live,” he continued.
“It is a passion that commenced in Mount Lawley over a decade ago and it is so great to be back here delivering another great product.”
The artwork concept on the building is split across two major sections: Location One and Location Two. Location one is a 2D based mural that centres around two heavily patterned figures. The figures interact across a narrative which aims to evoke ideas of connection, growth of the area and the exploration of urban life.
Location Two is a 3D based artwork, manufactured and installed as a large-scale perforated screen. Its grid-like geometric patterns climb to 75% of the height of the building. It relates to location one and represents structure, mapping, the built environment and modern city life., merging into an area representing growth and nature.
M/25 by Match includes spacious apartment layouts available in one-bedroom x one-bathroom and two-bedroom x two bathroom, each with balcony or courtyard and one or two car bays.
