Following concerns raised by the residents of Melville regarding the future of the 27 Boxes development and specifically the rumour regarding it becoming a student residence, the MRA Committee met with Citiq (Oscar Wisniewski, Asset Manager responsible for the 27 Boxes development) and the new agent for 27 Boxes (Chris Hajec, Seeff Managing Director).


We can confirm based on commitments from Citiq:


  • There are no plans to develop a student resident at 27 Boxes.


From our discussions with Seeff, we can confirm that the owners of 27 Boxes may need to apply for an extension on their lease and may also need to get clarification on their zoning rights. We have agreed to work with Seeff to explore residents’ views and expectations of the development going forward and are keen for your input on the below survey.

We would urge all residents of Melville to please assist in completing the survey below (it will not take more than a few minutes). Should you not be able to fill in the survey below, please click on the following link to be redirected.
