The Stewart Collective at 269 Stewart St, Brunswick East, by developer Lucent - for herald sun real estate (5)

The Stewart Collective at 269 Stewart St, Brunswick East is enviably green.

A Brunswick East project with fossil-fuel-free living at its heart has sold more than 20 per cent of its apartments in less than a week.

Lucent Group managing director Panos Miltiadou said the Stewart Collective project would have an embedded energy network supplied with hydro electricity from Tasmania and no gas connections.

“There are no fossil fuels,” Mr Miltiadou said.

A three-storey library with cosy places to lounge.

It will be six storeys tall and includes 69 apartments with one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans.

Mr Miltiadou said buyers were intrigued by its mix of eye-catching architecture and green credentials.

“We had 17 of the 69 apartments sold over two days on the opening weekend (October 26 and 27),” he said.

With six different types of tile on offer in the bathrooms, there’s scope to customise.

One-bedroom floorplans are sold out and families and downsizers are eyeing larger units, including double-storey lofts.

Additional environmentally friendly aspects include new solar sharing technology that will supply energy to common spaces and 30 per cent of the power used by the 15 largest apartments.

Special double-glazed floor-to-ceiling windows let light in but not heat.

Big windows offer views and light, without worrying about heating and cooling bills.

All apartments feature blackbutt timber floors, exposed concrete ceilings, bluestone balcony tiles and floating island kitchen benches.

A three-storey library, rooftop communal gardens and barbecue facilities will also be included.
