The project is situated in the rapidly evolving Queen Victoria Market (QVM) Precinct with unrivalled connectivity, including direct access to Melbourne’s best public transport hubs. The forthcoming State Library Metro Train Station (CBD North) and Parkville Metro Train Station are both within close proximity. Trams also run along Elizabeth Street just metres away.
The 1,696sqm site is in an excellent location to provide improved connectivity to the QVM and a part of the rejuvenation of the wider QVM Precinct, which includes the introduction of pocket parks, laneway networks and the future 1.75-hectare public market square.
Permitted for a mixed-use building, including retail tenancies, commercial/coworking spaces, a publicly accessible indoor basketball court and 267 build-to-rent residences ranging from studios to three bedroom apartments.
Residential amenities include gym, sauna and wellness facilities, rooftop terraces and gardens, private dining rooms with kitchen facilities, as well as private and common area multi-functional spaces.
Once developed, the building will be operated by Alt Living. We are also incorporating the heritage façade of Burbank House into the development built form to honour the nature of the site and surrounding area.
