Front and centre: new Footscray Riverfront Apartments

Introducing the first absolute riverfront access project to be launched in Footscray. Located just 4 kilometres from Melbourne's CBD this architecturally-designed project commands pole position within Footscray.

Apartments are available to purchase now before the general public launch in August, with astute buyers provided first opportunity to pick the best apartments in the development.  

Footscray Rail Station is a mere 800 metres away, as is the central retail and restaurant thoroughfare that is Barkly Street. In addition to Footscray's transformed city centre, Victoria University maintains two campuses which have over 10,000 students enrolled within walking distance. 

The amenity of Footscray now matches its vibrancy of culture, highlighted by the influx from Melburnians looking to call Footscray home.

Often forgotten are Footscray's impeccable transport links; a tram links the suburb to Maribyrnong, Moonee Ponds and Essendon and a new bicycle superhighway has been proposed as part of the West Gate tunnel project which will provide fast and direct bicycle access into Docklands. 

A short walk from Footscray riverfront apartments, Footscray Rail Station enjoys a high frequency of train services - and it's a brief two stop journey into Melbourne's CBD.

Location is key within the greater Footscray context

Designed by CHT Architects, the boutique development is sited alongside the Maribyrniong River, ensuring all apartments experience superb view lines of the CBD and surrounds with wonderful natural light and ventilation.

This truly unique living and investment opportunity on the doorstep of Melbourne's CBD will inject further life into the already bustling area. Footscray's current population of 17,000 is forecast to grow to 45,000 by 2040, as more and more individuals and families begin to recognise the suburb's inherent value. 

Excellent residential amenity is on offer within the development at a low annual body corporate fee. Amenities include a commercial-sized gym, day spa, full sized lawn bowls green, clubhouse-themed bar and lounge, an amazing indoor swimming pool with double height ceilings and an expansive rooftop terrace with unfettered views.

The hotel-like amenities on offer ensure residents will have all the comforts they desire.

Additionally, residents in the development will have direct access to the Maribyrnong River's edge via a stairway.

Spacious interiors for owner-occupiers designed with ample access to natural daylight and ventilation

CHT Architects have conceived a ‘place for everything’ with ample storage designed into each dwelling. Superbly appointed kitchens feature stone benchtops, glass splashbacks and European appliances; their ergonomic design blends practicality with luxury.

And this is the case throughout each apartment, with engineered oak flooring and plush carpeted bedrooms adding a softer tone to the luxurious finishes.

Footscray riverfront apartments consist of one and two bedroom dwellings, which include storage spaces and generous balconies to each apartment. Designed with a high degree of architectural nouse, the building will benefit from a high level of natural light penetration and natural ventilation, in addition to being heavily sheltered from the noise of surrounding life.

It promises to be your quiet sanctuary on the river.

Kitchens have plenty of storage and space for cooking

Footscray riverfront apartments stack up particularly well in the size versus price matrix.

Architecturally designed for owner occupiers yet priced for value and investment at under $8000 per square metre, Footscray's premier riverfront apartments make for a great opportunity, particularly in terms of strong capital growth and rental yield.

One bedroom apartments are between 50 sqm to 59 sqm internally, and are priced from $391,000 to $442,000. Two bedroom dwellings range in size between 65 sqm to 78 sqm internally and are priced from $487,000 to $690,000.

The average square metre rate of under $8,000 allows this new development to offer true value with a superior position coupled with comparatively low body corporation fees.

View across the river and parkland to the Melbourne skyline.

Hot on the heels of news that Holiday Inn will anchor Werribee's tallest proposed development, the application for 22-26 Synnot Street has gone to advertising. At over 42 metres in height and spread across a 2,567 square metre site the project is Werribee's largest, and accounts for the last of a trio of catalyst sites earmarked by Wyndham City Council as perfect for urban renewal.

The marriage of old and new can be a difficult process, particularly when the existing structure has intrinsic heritage value. In previous times Fitzroy's 237 Napier Street served as the home of furniture manufacturer C.F. Rojo and Sons. Taking root during 1887, Christobel Rojo oversaw operations though over time the site would become home to furniture manufacturer Thonet.
