YarraBend, Alphington

May 27th, 2016

Widely regarded as the best mixed-use development site in Melbourne, this extraordinary 16.46 hectare space enjoys almost 300 metres frontage to the iconic Yarra River and is adjacent to sweeping local parklands. Since 1919 the YarraBend site functioned as a paper mill and this beautiful slice of exclusive riverfront land was inaccessible to the public. Our vision is to create an iconic new suburb where residents and visitors alike can enjoy the best of Melbourne living from the serenity of the Yarra River, to a vibrant food and café scene, to an artistic and cultural hub of health and fitness lifestyle.

Located just 6.5 kilometres from the city, the site, once developed, will become a new suburb of Melbourne and include supermarkets, a specialty retail hub, apartments, townhouses and traditional house blocks. Its proximity to the river will also allow development of unique riverfront townhouses and larger scale home blocks.

While many urban renewal projects revitalise undesirable parts of a city, YarraBend is exactly the opposite. It is located directly across the river from the coveted suburbs of Kew and Studley Park and at the core of the tightly-held suburb of Alphington. Surrounded by the Yarra River, parklands, golf courses, The Yarra Trail walking and cycling tracks and boat houses, it’s easy to forget you’re only a 10-minute drive to Melbourne’s CBD. Public transport is only a few hundred metres away and some of Melbourne’s best public and private schools are just 5 minutes away.

YarraBend will become a new exemplar of sustainable living with a number of key environmental initiatives which will utilize the latest in technology. Partnerships with leading sustainability and technology firms will be included. Melbourne’s arts and cultural status will be reflected at YarraBend with major arts commissions and support for local artists.

This suburb is also perfectly located to create an active and healthy lifestyle and we will supplement the area’s natural and direct access to parkland and trails with health and lifestyle hubs including gymnasium, sports facilities, spaces for yoga, wellness and meditation spaces.

Designing a beautiful suburb is of utmost importance to Glenvill. It is our intention to enlist iconic Australian and international collaborators in many areas of the development. These collaborators will ensure the initiatives we introduce at YarraBend are exciting, ground breaking and of significant value to our community.

The statement “An iconic new suburb on the edge of Kew” encapsulates Glenvill’s vision to deliver a never before seen way of inner urban living in Melbourne.

The Cotery, Northcote

May 30th, 2016

Stretching north and south of Gadd Street’s frontage, the one, two and three bedroom contemporary apartments and townhouses are loosely defined into precincts by a series of landscaped streets.

Externally, the use of contrasting textures and materials, together with eclectic sculptural forms, delivers a warm earthy palette and timeless design. The seamless transition of this palette to the indoors, delivers a development with individual character and style. Through vibrant architecture and design, the Cotery will set a new benchmark for modern Northcote living.
