The Urban Developer has recently announced the top 20 Melbourne development projects, with residential apartments Aspire Tower, Melbourne Square, The Malt District, Moonee Valley Park and Seafarers making the list.
Prior to the global pandemic last year, Melbourne was expected to overtake Sydney as the nation’s most populous city by 2026 - increasing strains on infrastructure and housing. In response, the Victorian government committed $47 billion and more than $10 billion promised over each of the next four years - with the aim to build for the expected population growth of 8 million by 2050.
Since the pandemic, the Government has fast-tracked a number of high profile projects to bolster construction pipelines - resulting in several high-quality, high-end developments awaiting or under construction. Here is a sneak peek at some of the projects.
Aspire Tower Residences
Marked as the crowning jewel of Aspire Tower, Aspire Residences feature impeccably designed quarter floor, half floor, full floor, sub-penthouse and penthouse residences. Designed by David Hicks, these homes offer a luxury lifestyle on a grand scale.
Melbourne Square Residences offer Melbourne’s first wellness-enabled lifestyle apartments supported by Darwin Home Wellness Intelligence. The Life&Style Edition is the perfect opportunity to incorporate Delos cutting-edge technology into the apartments - creating environments that improve health, wellbeing and performance.
The Malt District
These 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments feature a rooftop bar near the iconic Nylex sign - allowing residents to take in the scenic Melbourne view while enjoying a sip at sunset. Residents will also have access to a gym and yoga room at The Health Club along with The Relaxation Centre which includes a steam room, sauna and meditation room.
Moonee Valley Park
These Feehan Row homes and terraces are only 6km from Melbourne city centre and adjacent to the soon to be opened Tote Park. Each Rothelowman designed home has a secretly gated and individual entrance with architecture inspired by the historic Victorian terrace.
Designed by Nonda Katsalidis, Seafarers Residences is marked to transform the city’s last remaining Yarra River frontage into a new visionary waterfront precinct. Centred on an inspired reimagining of the heritage-protected Goods Shed 5, Seafarers will feature Melbourne’s first international hotel-branded residences - 1 Hotel & Homes, above Australia’s first 1 Hotel.
