Recent changes to industry legislation have caused a significant shift in the market over the last 12 months. There has been an increase in the number of residential developments geared towards local owner occupiers and downsizers, having a ripple effect on the way local developments are designed and executed.

The market’s expectations have also changed, buyers are savvy, well-researched and they demand quality. They have an affinity with property and lifestyle, and are engaging with property related content through social and digital platforms every day.

Jellis Craig Projects offers buyers access to:

Blue-chip real estate

Located in one of Melbourne’s most sought-after suburbs, Jellis Craig Projects offers astute clients access to more refined projects, a low maintenance lifestyle and strong capital returns. Quality apartments in covetable locations such as Kew, Hawthorn and Malvern are particularly popular because of their proximity to the CBD, access to transport, retail, and recreation facilities.


With long-standing relationships built over more than 25 years, Jellis Craig Projects are pleased to assist many clients in making the transition from large family homes to apartment or townhouse living. We have seen a trend towards low maintenance “lock up and leave” dwellings, affording downsizers the ability to travel when desired.

Considered design

Architecture is now focused on human centred design with apartments boasting spacious floor plans and high-end finishes to suit the owner-occupier. The flow on effect of this increasingly liveable design appeals not just to our downsizers, but to young professionals and families who are benefiting from the progression too. First home buyers now look to apartments as the contemporary alternative to the traditional quarter acre dream, gaining a bolt hold on a more affordable and lifestyle driven market which would otherwise be an unaffordable reality.


Purchasing off the plan buys not just a product tailored to suit individual needs, but also time. Time for downsizers to consolidate assets in preparation for the move or for first home buyers to accumulate wealth to go towards repayments.

As a Jellis Craig Projects client you will benefit from more than 25 years’ experience in the local market, strong industry relationships and access to unique sites throughout Melbourne’s most desirable suburbs. We are proud to continue to find the best places for our clients to call home.
