South Melbourne: the place Melburnians most want to buy & live

The suburb of South Melbourne continues to be the number 1 priority pick for buyers, local owner occupier and investors, of off the plan and complete apartments in the inner ring suburbs across Melbourne.

Closely followed by the likes of Collingwood and Richmond, South Melbourne continues to retain the number 1 title due to its geographic location between the Melbourne CBD and the Bay, offering a lifestyle value-add above its inner-city counterparts.

South Melbourne Market, its expansion across restaurant and retail offerings, healthy eating with the likes of Gas Works Farmers Market, the proximity to retail and commercial amenity along Clarendon Street and Bay Street and the light rail and tram options ensures residents do not need to leave the area for want or need of a good or service.
