After delivering more than $2 billion worth of homes in premium locations in the last 25 years, Bensons Property Group has announced its new development, Liberty One in Footscray.
Brett Howlett, National Director of Developments at Bensons, says the company takes pride in producing projects in locations with close access to schools, amenities, and transport, which also have a positive economic outlook.
“Footscray represents one of the last locations this close to the CBD where buyers will be able to benefit from the rapid gentrification, investment and infrastructure that suburbs like Collingwood, Fitzroy, and Richmond have already experienced,” Brett says.
He adds, “Footscray is an exceptional location that is well below median price for its proximity to the CBD and should not be overlooked by the astute buyer — especially for first homeowners or those looking to make a wise investment.”
Standing 23-storeys proud, Liberty One comprises one, two and three bedroom apartments designed by CHT Architects and Sora Interior Architecture & Design. The elegant façade makes reference to the leafy streetscape and the Maribyrnong River below.
From within the home, residents enjoy spectacular views over the river, Flemington Racecourse, and beyond. Exuding comfort and luxury, each residence is filled with natural light through floor-to-ceiling windows while luxury fittings and striking finishes lend a sense of sophistication to living spaces.
Contemporary kitchens feature engineered stone benchtops, joinery panelling and bespoke cabinetry, completing the modern yet classic style of these open-plan interiors. Kitchens and living spaces are generously proportioned to allow for dinner parties with friends and family while the spacious terrace balconies are an ideal setting for al fresco dinners on a warm night.
Liberty One’s impressive rooftop recreation area provides well-balanced private amenities. Rest and recharge in the open-air yoga space and meditation zone or enjoy a quiet moment from within the cosy and inviting library or outdoor cinema. Indoor and outdoor lounge and dining areas provide further opportunity for scenic outlooks over the neighbouring surrounds.
Directly opposite Liberty One, residents will benefit from direct access to a spacious new community parkland that is planned for the precinct.
Only 5km from the CBD and 7 minutes by train, Footscray is highly connected and convenient. Frequently running buses along Hopkins Street enable easy access to East Melbourne, while Footscray Station provides links to the city, as well as the northern and southern suburbs.
