Nando Pellicano, managing director, Pellicano said the site offers great connectivity to wider Melbourne being within a two-minute walk to bus access, and a five-minute walk to the Oakleigh train station.

"It also has direct access to major arterials such as Dandenong Road, Warrigal Road and the Monash Freeway,” he said.

"Alke will present a four-storey frontage to the street, with a retail tenancy at ground level creating an opportunity to add to the already vibrant street life.

“We see this development catering to residents in all walks of life,” Pellicano said.
