• UEM Sunrise and Hickory Group celebrate the structural topping out of Conservatory in Melbourne 
• A selection of 477 significant artefacts from the 1800s Early Gold Rush era soon to be on public display 

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA, 6 April 2018: UEM Sunrise Berhad (“UEM Sunrise” or “the Company”), one of Malaysia’s leading property developers, along with Hickory Group (“Hickory”), celebrated the ‘topping out’ of Conservatory at a ceremony on the building’s rooftop today. 

The AUD$330 million luxury residential building, located on MacKenzie Street in Melbourne, will be UEM Sunrise’s first completed project in Australia since the Company’s entry into the Melbourne market in 2013. The first stage of Conservatory apartments will be handed over to purchasers from late September 2018 onwards. 

UEM Sunrise’s Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Anwar Syahrin Abdul Ajib said, “Conservatory marks an important piece of history for UEM Sunrise – it’s the next step for us in fulfilling our promise of delivering quality, luxury projects in Australia, with Aurora Melbourne Central set to be handed over to purchasers from 3Q 2018 onwards and site works of Mayfair commencing this year.” 

He added that “Conservatory is an integral part of Melbourne’s history, too. Before construction began, we engaged an archaeological consultant for an archaeological excavation of the site. They uncovered over 250,000 artefacts, dating back to the early gold rush in the 1800s when the site was the Mistletoe Hotel.” 

Mr. Anwar said that “Fittingly, these items reflect an opulent time when Melbourne’s population was bourgeoning, and settlement started to take shape. Conservatory similarly represents a new era of population growth and will service Melbournians with luxury accommodation options, boasting views over the Carlton Gardens and lavish amenities such as a rooftop jacuzzi, private cinema and golf simulator.” 

From late September 2018, 477 pieces of significant artefacts found at Conservatory will be on display in purpose-built glass cases in the foyer of the building, which the public can view from the Bell Place Laneway. UEM Sunrise has worked closely with Heritage Victoria and the appointed archaeological consultant as well as conservator to identify these artefacts, which will include:

Hidden Loot – a small revolver and bullets, together with a small leather wallet and beaded necklace, were found hidden in the Mistletoe Hotel cellar, signifying the colourful lifestyle of the hotel occupants.

Necessities – everyday items that were used by patrons at the Mistletoe Hotel to service the population boom, such as a clay pipe, ceramic egg cups, silverware, a clay pipe, fob watch, inkwells, bone handle carving knives and perfume bottles.

Gold – items from the Early Gold Rush era owned by wealthy patrons, such as a gold nugget pin.

Glasswares – a number of cognac and champagne bottles used at the hotel signify a time of extravagance.  

Mr. Michael Argyrou, Managing Director of Hickory, said that the company was proud to reach the ‘topping out’ stage of the project and is excited to see the finished product come September 2018 onwards. 

“Hickory is very proud to be delivering a high quality, landmark project in Melbourne such as Conservatory. It will no doubt be an amazing place to live and for the owners of these luxury apartments, Hickory will help maintain the quality for years to come, not unlike the servicing of a new luxury car. As a first in the industry, we will be on hand to ensure that owners protect their most valuable asset and keep their apartments operating efficiently into the future.” 

The groundbreaking ceremony was also witnessed by UEM Sunrise’s Chairman of the Board, Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Zamzamzairani Mohd Isa. 

Conservatory offers 446 units of one, two and three-bedroom residences and four (4) generous levels of residential facilities. These include a pool, gymnasium, golf simulator, yoga zone, BBQ pit, entertainment deck, private cinema and two (2) expansive Jacuzzi on the Level 42 Carlton Skydeck, with amazing views over the Carlton Gardens. 

Limited fully furnished apartment units are still available. Visit the project website at for more information.
