The homebuilders behind the first house to be built in Australia are making a major splash in Melbourne.
Construction company J.P. Morgan is taking on the $10 million house for its first project in Australia.
The $10m project will be built on the site of a former school.
“The J. P Morgan House is a landmark in Melbourne’s capital, and the next generation of home builders in Australia will be inspired by its beauty,” Mr Turnbull said in a statement.
“I have been impressed by the vision and commitment of the team that has put this house on the doorstep of this nation.”
This project will not only mark the arrival of a new generation of building and construction industry leaders, but also be a testament to the strong community spirit of this country.
“Construction on the project began in September last year.
It will feature a state-of-the-art new home that will feature an open floor plan and features a contemporary design.”
It is a project that will create new jobs, raise new investment, and create a world class housing market in Melbourne,” Mr Abbott said.”
Its also a project with significant environmental and social benefits.
“The first house was designed by architect Michael R. McLean.
Mr Turnbull said the house would be one of the first projects built in the city by the city.”
In this project, we have the opportunity to build on a vision that has been shared by our city, our state and the nation for the past decade,” he said.
The project has been approved by the Victorian Government and the Victorian Premier, Daniel Andrews, who said he was proud of the city’s “commitment to supporting new housing”.
Mr Turnbull also congratulated Melbourne’s new mayor, Matthew Guy, on the completion of the project.”
We’re extremely proud of what he’s achieved in Melbourne in a short period of time,” Mr Guy said.
