Situated at 120 Marine Parade, the exclusive residences are commencing construction and –will provide absolute beachfront living in 10 apartments and one palatial penthouse.
Created by award-winning architects and developers Baltinas, in conjunction with Cameron Chisholm Nicol Architects and E-Landscape Architects, Meridian takes coastal chic to the next level with full immersion in its iconic landscape.
Coveted beachfront address
A rare beachside prospect in blue-chip Cottesloe, Meridian makes the most of its unique location and lifestyle opportunities.
“Meridian Cottesloe is a once-in-a-generation offering,” says Barry Baltinas, founder and architect at Baltinas. “The tightly held Marine Parade strip has never seen a luxury development like Meridian before.
“Just footsteps from the golden sand of Cottesloe’s world-renowned beaches, life at Meridian paves the way for a deep connection with the breathtaking surrounding coastal typography.”
Halfway between the CBD and Fremantle, Cottesloe is one of Perth’s top suburbs for its vibrant village vibe, proximity to beautiful beaches, and signature Norfolk Island pine trees.
PropTrack senior economist Angus Moore says the greater Cottesloe region has been a consistently strong performer in the Perth market, with real estate values sustaining 5% growth in the past year and a 33% rise since the pandemic.
The suburb has a median house price of more than $3 million.
“Five per cent is pretty impressive growth in an environment where interest rates have risen very significantly,” Moore says.
“One of the things we saw across the pandemic was an increase in the value that people place on the kind of lifestyle amenities in their suburbs. These sorts of coastal and waterfront areas did very well.
“That’s certainly supported prices in these waterfront areas and that’s true in many parts of the country, including in Perth.”
Baltinas says Meridian would appeal to Cottesloe and western suburbs locals seeking a move from bigger family homes, as well as corporate professionals and foreign buyers keen to purchase a low-maintenance home in one of Perth’s most appealing beach suburbs.
“Many locals have been waiting for a development like Meridian for some time as they desire to ‘rightsize’ into a fresh architectural home in the area they love,” he says.
“Being a boutique development that will consist of mainly owner-occupiers will give rise to a deep sense of community and privacy within the building.”
Reminiscent of the water lapping at the shore, Meridian’s facade has captured coastal themes while maintaining a unique architectural identity.
“The design and architecture of the development is especially striking, giving Meridian the potential to become a landmark in Cottesloe,” Baltinas says.
“The architectural design and building materials that will be used have been selected in direct response to the Cottesloe shoreline and typography.”
Meridian has options aplenty with apartments available in a range of three and four bedroom configurations, and each residence has parking for two to four cars, depending on the floorplan selection.
Floor-to-ceiling windows make a seamless transition to the ocean and treetops from each residence, along with high-end finishes such as natural stone and timbers.
The penthouse offers an unparalleled living experience, with a wraparound balcony, 270-degree views and above ground plunge pool.
“The carefully planned orientation of the penthouse ensures its barbecue and pool areas are protected from afternoon sea breezes, enabling year-round outdoor enjoyment,” Baltinas says.
The apartment kitchens feature Gaggenau appliances as well as a filtered sparkling water tap and custom-controlled wine storage, while the penthouse also includes a coffee machine and integrated fridge and dishwasher.
Best of amenities
Meridian offers the very best amenities within its bounds and beyond – from keyless entry and biometric systems and a secure mail delivery room to smart home integration, security and EV charging facilities.
Baltinas says the lifestyle opportunities of Cottesloe are endless and complement the development’s opulent inclusions.
“Every morning, residents can enjoy stunning views from their homes, venture across the road for an invigorating ocean plunge, coastal run, walk or paddleboard, and sip on coffee from a local cafe or bakery,” he says.
“Then spend the evening watching the sun set over the Indian Ocean.
“Perth’s most scenic golf and tennis clubs are also just meters from Meridian’s front door.”
In addition, the development’s ground-floor commercial space will feature a new restaurant and bar, adding to the suburb’s choice of dining destinations.
Construction of Meridian Cottesloe is expected to be complete in late 2025. Prices for these exclusive residences start at $5,792,000.
