Six Australian design firms will redevelop a 9200 square metre West Melbourne site into a mixed-use development named West End.

The development will feature four apartment buildings, a hotel, supermarket and medical centre, a new public park as well as a wellness centre, day spa, pool, gym, 50-seat cinema, dog wash and dog walking service and four electric car charging stations supplied by Tesla.

The development is between Trenerry Property, Hecker Guthrie, Carr Design Group, Mim Design, Six Degrees and CHT Architects. The site was acquired from Australia Post in 2014. It is cornered by by Rosslyn, Dudley and Adderley Streets as well as Bluestone Lane near Spencer Street, West Melbourne.
Robert DiCintio, Trenerry Property director said West End would remake apartment living in Melbourne, with few if any inactive frontages and an emphasis on amenity that made life better.

“It’s a different way to live, a better way to live and we think West End will set the benchmark for mixed use developments in Australia," he said.

"It’s not services for the sake of services, or stuff that sounds good on paper but doesn’t work in reality. It’s real life amenity that changes the way you live in the world and in your apartment."

David Carabott, CHT Architects director said that while the lifestyle experience will be consistent, the diverse aesthetics found within each building will create unique points of difference and broaden the appeal of West End overall.

“One of the most notable aspects of the West End project is the unique design collaboration that will take place among some of the city’s best architects and designers," he said.

Carr Design Group, Hecker Guthrie, Mim Design and Six Degrees will each impart their unique design aesthetic on one residential building; Adderley, Spencer, Mail House and Foundry, respectively - it’s the first time that Melbourne will see a curation of this calibre."

The Adderley building comprises 14 levels, Adderley is the tallest of West End’s apartment buildings, and features 98 one, two and three bedroom apartments and two penthouses, as well as an art gallery.

Construction of West End will commence in June 2017 and completion is anticipated by late 2019. For further information, visit www.westend.melbourne
