Property Group Caydon has selected a builder for its $300 million high-end apartment project in Alphington, Melbourne.
Hickory Group will build HOME by Caydon, with both companies committing to maintaining high standards of both COVID-19 safety onsite and quality of the build.
The project is being built on the former Amcor Paper Mill, around 600 metres from Alphington Railway Station. It is planned to be 16 levels tall and provide views of the city, Yarra River and Dandenong Ranges.
Three-quarters of an acre of communal space has been included into the building’s design.
Caydon’s Managing Principal Joe Russo said that after an extensive tender process Hickory Group was appointed based on the company’s 19-year track record of delivering outstanding projects across both the residential and commercial sectors.

“For HOME, it was essential that Caydon engaged a partner who shares our commitment to innovation and quality that our purchasers have come to expect,” Russo said.
“I’m confident these values and exacting standards will be carried through to the very end of the project, while assuring both the safety of every single person on the site and the quality of the end product.”
Hickory Group Managing Director George Abraham said the company embraced the opportunity of undertaking its first partnership with Caydon and echoed Russo’s sentiments towards balancing safety with quality assurance.
“Securing this project and the opportunity to work with Caydon has been a top priority for Hickory, given the respect and credibility they have garnered in our industry through delivering tier-one projects such as Mason Square and the Malt District,” Abraham said.
“Whilst our relationship with Caydon is new, we have found the process streamlined and professional, and we’re enjoying working with the team.”
Construction of HOME is expected to be complete mid-2022.
