Samma Place is set to breathe new life into Ivanhoe

Forward-thinking property developer Samma Property Group has just announced its most lavish project to date, Linden, the first stage of its new flagship development, Samma Place.

The launch of Linden will breathe new life into Ivanhoe with its striking landmark design by award-winning architecture, interior and urban planning firm, Peddle Thorp, and by introducing lush greenery into its wider surrounds.

Primed to be a destination in itself and one of Ivanhoe’s most iconic addresses, Linden will offer luxury living with apartments featuring private landscaped balconies overlooking the city skyline.

Linden residents will arrive via a private sheltered driveway leading to a magnificent entrance and porte cochère, framed by luxuriant hanging gardens by landscapers MALA Studio, the masterminds behind the parkland setting for Amanda Levete’s 2015 MPavilion. The new frontage includes a hotel-inspired porte cochère and private lobby, providing an immediate sense of address and arrival.

The spectacular communal terrace on Level 10 is a highlight at Linden, comprising an outdoor BBQ and inside dining area, along with a spa and sundeck. Whether watching movies at the rooftop cinema with friends, or simply taking in city vistas, it’s a place for residents to meet neighbours and create a sense of community.

Spaciousness and natural light are the focus of every Lindenapartment, in which expansive windows and balconies seamlessly blend indoor and outdoor living. Space and design are balanced harmoniously throughout luxury bathrooms and designer kitchens made for entertaining.

Samma Property Group’s Senior Development Manager Benjamin Cribb said that Linden stands out for its large apartments, designed to meet Better Apartment Design Standards (BADS) and 4-Star GreenStar rating, complemented with cutting-edge design and meticulous landscaping.

“Our brief ensures Linden has its own identity with each apartment designed as a ‘backyard in the sky’, synthesizing the Australian backyard with contemporary apartments. The concept positions living environments and outside spaces as places of comfort and repose, allowing nature to take centre stage.”

Inspired by the leafy context of Ivanhoe, from its mature tree-lined streets to its natural habitats and vegetated river banks, landscaping is a focal point at Linden.

“Landscaping is also a direct response to the current experience and feel of Bell Street. We want to bring the Ivanhoe lushness to the buildings, at the human interfaces with the built form — in lobbies, on balconies, in podium areas — and also the street,” said Cribb.

In addition to apartments, Linden will also be home to nearly 1,000 square metres of commercial space, with subsequent stages proposed to include a grocery store, café and offices, offering infinite potential for local business and as a vibrant community.

With demolition in progress, construction soon underway and completion set for early 2023, Cribb said that Linden is Samma Property Group’s flagship project as it embodies the core values and vision of the group.

Linden is the first stage of Samma Place, the latest flagship mixed-use project for Samma Property Group; prices for these residences will start from $435,000.
