20 of 28 Apartments
Parkside. Brunswick East.
The Elm by MOS Architects is a sophisticated, contemporary reflection of Brunswick East’s history and evolution. Comprising of just 28 apartments, it is truly boutique in both its size and design. The graceful lines speak of a building that offers contemporary low-maintenance, elegant living, while the materials pay homage to the suburb’s industrial past.
Concrete, metal and brickwork bring textural interest to the building as well as reflecting elements of the neighbourhood.
The restrained and considered palette used for interior and exterior finishes ensures aesthetic longevity and graceful ageing. The Elm will keep its good looks for decades to come.
The majority of apartments – 20 out of the 28 – are three bedrooms with the space and amenity of a family home. This signals the maturity of the Brunswick East market and reflects demand from owner / occupier professional couples and downsizers looking for a spacious, low-maintenance urban lifestyle.
The design is light and airy. On the upper floors, a glazed lift lobby is connected to apartments, not by long enclosed corridors, but attractive covered walkways flanked by lush planter boxes.
Residents relax, unwind and entertain on the first-floor podium level. Here, a common area bathed in north-facing sunshine is extensively landscaped and has a communal barbecue area. A large, central void above the podium draws light and sunshine into the building.
Sustainability is built in with a 42KW solar electricity system, and up to 12,000 litres of rainwater is collected and connected to toilets.
Our changing attitudes to transport are catered for. Each car space can be fitted with a power outlet for charging electric vehicles and there is secure storage for 28 bicycles on wall-mounted racks or floor-mounted rails. All apartments have one storage cage.

The building’s maturity and quality informs the classic, tempered interior. Abundant space and elegance harmonise with the timeless character of the architecture and creates distinctive, welcoming homes.
Three-bedroom dwellings have the dimensions and comfort of a luxurious home within the convenience of an apartment. These uniquely sized floorplans are one of the distinctive key features of this development and will enable occupants a freedom of space hard to find in new developments.
One and two-bedroom apartments are also generous in size with large balconies.
Tones of grey and white combine with timber, stone and subtle copper highlights to create a warm, sophisticated backdrop to your furnishings and lifestyle. The decor is contemporary, elegant and timeless – not following a trend that will date soon after you move in.
Living areas are designed for easy relaxation and effortless entertaining. Walls of glass open to generous balconies and the seamless transition is enhanced by balcony tiles flush with the living area floor.
Dark joinery and mirrored splashbacks give the kitchens a flicker of drama, while premium appliances, excellent storage and considered design make them a pleasure to use.
Bathrooms and en suites are sleek and indulgent with quality finishes and muted colours that ensure a tranquil start and end to the day. Walls and floors are finished with textured light and mid-grey tiles, and mosaic tiles are featured around the mirrored cabinet.

Boho Brunswick East
Brunswick East, just 5 kilometres from the CBD, is one of Melbourne’s greatest “reinvention” suburbs.
For decades, nothing much happened but then, a cafe appeared here, a restaurant there, quirky and sophisticated bars began to multiply and soon the northern end of Lygon Street was serving cuisines, craft beers and cocktails from around the world.
Weekends can be as action-packed or quiet as you like. Start with a leisurely breakfast at Ten Tables and make an ambitious resolution to try every cafe. Walk or cycle the trails that follow the rippling waters of Merri Creek and enjoy the birdsong among its hectares of natural bushland. More exercise? The Brunswick Velodrome – serious effort for serious cyclists – is on your doorstep. Get involved in good deeds, learn a new skill or be entertained at CERES Community Environment Park.
Just across the road is Fleming Park – 2.8 hectares of Brunswick East history now being refurbished. The 1937 grandstand will be replaced with a contemporary design that references the past, sporting facilities are being upgraded and added to, and public art will be incorporated.
The best kind of inner-city lifestyle is offered by The Elm. This happens when you are only short walk from the action, but your immediate neighbourhood is whisper quiet – a great night out followed by tranquil, uninterrupted sleep.
And, who knew the beach was an easy fit for Brunswick East – the No.96 tram runs down Nicholson Street and all the way to St Kilda. It’s all part of the charm of this low-key, friendly and connected suburb.

The Good Life
If you love food, Brunswick East is your spirit home. The suburb is an engine room of innovation and a creative hub of young talent. Don’t feel like cooking, or have a group of friends drop in unexpectedly? No worries – a short stroll and everyone is happily fed and watered.
It is not only the number of cafes and restaurants that makes the area exciting, it’s the extraordinary diversity. Do we know any other suburbs that have their own winery? Noisy Ritual makes wine, food and music. Join a workshop and stomp your way to a tasty drop.
Etta has a loyal following and a fantastic pedigree courtesy of Hannah Green who honed her silky kitchen skills at Attica, Australia’s top restaurant and one of the world’s 50 best. Try the bar for a lazy drink and a fabulous snack, or settle into the dining room and wow your senses.
For pizza with international credentials, the Margarita at 400 Gradi was judged the world’s best.
The suburb dishes up endless servings of talent, fun and quirkiness. You just know the cocktails will be great at a bar called Atticus Finch. How about a chocolate factory with a local seasonal menu? You’ll love East Elevation. New Orleans jazz and traditional South American food at The Moldy Fig? Ask about the name. Wild Life Bakery brings a San Francisco influence; the Wood Samaritan wants to be a Canadian cabin; Bluebonnet Barbecue is all Texas style and, let’s not mince our words here – the food at F. A. T. is Fried And Tasty.
The shopping here is fun with creative and innovative designers moving in. Order a pair of handmade shoes from Claire Best or, if you can’t wait for shoes to be made, check out the original styles at Allegro. Monk House on Lygon is a small boutique with a big reputation for quality clothing, jewellery and accessories. Join the buzz and enjoy products from the hive at Bee Sustainable.
Just around the corner in Nicholson Street the East Brunswick Village Commercial Precinct is under construction. This massive urban renewal project will offer boutique shopping, a market-style Coles, exciting new bars, restaurants and cafes, an artisanal bakery, pharmacy and gym.
