Hamton is a highly acclaimed property developer specialising in Melbourne’s residential apartment and ancillary retail sectors. With a single-minded focus on creating remarkable homes, the company has delivered numerous award-winning developments and played a leading role in defining the ‘lifestyle apartment’ category.

Hamton’s creativity and commitment to innovation has captured the imagination of residents and investors alike, firmly cementing its position as one of Australia’s most creative, consistent and successful developers.

Under Joint Managing Directors Paul Hameister and Steve Buxton, Hamton has grown in a controlled and considered way since it was established. The company now has around 30 employees who commit themselves daily to delivering great property, and who oversee around $1.2 billion worth of mixed-use development.


Hamton are excited to form a part of the CITINICHE network, which we believe introduces an innovative resource to both the community and those involved in the design and development of new housing.

The notion that individuals with common ideals could facilitate the procurement of new housing typologies from a community fostered online immediately appealed to us as a consortium. We can see the opportunities CITINICHE will provide to empower the community and future home owner, by influencing the design and development of housing typologies that remain undiscovered.


Evaluating the needs of our clients and developing an understanding of their lifestyle requirements forms an integral part of our practice ideology. This presents a challenge when practicing within a conventional development framework, as the future owner is often uninvolved at an early stage. Through our partnership with CITINICHE, we aim to utilise the feedback provided by user groups, to identify and develop intelligent housing solutions through an exchange of information and ideas.

The prospect of interacting with new communities to develop housing solutions that addresses their specific needs presents a unique opportunity. We see this as a positive way in which we can engage and interact with a new client base to improve the design process and the final built outcome.
