Just 12.8km to the CBD, Gran Vita scores an impressive 85 – Very Walkable, on Walkscore. The Glenroy Activity Centre is a local shopping and service centre at the northern edge of the City of Moreland, centred on the Glenroy Railway Station and comprising a number of precincts that are physically dissected by Craigieburn (formerly Broadmeadows) rail line and arterial roads (Pascoe Vale and Glenroy Roads).
The centre is well serviced by public transport. It is located on the Craigieburn rail line, with Glen roy station being the last station in Zone 1. This train station is now earmarked as one to go underground by 2017 providing less traffic congestion and easier pedestrian flow to, from and around Glenroy Station. Large commuter car parks are located on bot h sides of the rail line. Four bus routes also serve the centre, linking the area with Eltham, Merlynston, Gowrie and Roxburgh Park.
The Glenroy Structure Plan outlines an aspirational and exciting vision for the future of Glenroy. The document provides a long – term framework for the regeneration of the Glenroy Activity Centre over the next 15 to 20 years. The activity centre includes the Pascoe Vale Road and Wheatsheaf Road shopping strips, the industrial area to the east of the rail line, and land abutting these areas. New development will provide the opportunity to create a vibrant mixed – use centre with more services, facilities, activity and residential opportunities in a high – quality environment.
The complex consists of eight town houses built over 2 lev els each.
The townhouses in the development are all 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom with a single car garage for each.
Architecturally designed by Time Architects, the complex will offer great street appeal and the internal finishes have been selected considering t he demographic these town houses will attract. Timber floors, European appliances and stone bench tops will bring the property to a level and quality surpassing the expected in this location.
