“The proposed final West Village development ‘celebrates the existing garden character of the precinct’ and will be ‘the most sculptural and refined offering in the Village,” planners at RPS Group said.

“Callista on Park will celebrate its garden character by wrapping Mollison Park up its façade plateauing on a true sky garden with watering holes, conservatories and intimate hidden gardens,” the planning documents read.

Each unit will have a highly functional private open space, ranging in size from 15sqm to 91sqm. It will also feature balcony areas which will be directly accessible from main internal living areas.

 A communal rooftop garden, with an area of 1,370sqm featuring hard and soft landscaping and open space, has also been proposed.

As for parking, the development proposes to supply a total of 178 residential component car parks including 161 residential spaces in dedicated areas across Basement Levels 2, 3 and 4.

The previously constructed podium level (Level 1) will house the childcare centre, spanning 1,192sqm and will have an outdoor play area on the Mollison Street side which is located across the road from the residential apartments.

The rooftop area will feature outdoor seating, kitchen, dining, sauna, spaces, wellness studio, swimming pool, and landscaping to provide communal areas for residents.
