Options for buyers seeking inner-city housing solutions, outside of apartments and below the $1 million price point, are slim in the Melbourne property market.

Recognising this gap, Australian property group, Glenvill has introduced a new loft design into the YarraBend development in Alphington.

All 48 Lofts released sold out in just a couple of weeks.

The Lofts, located in The Mills precinct of YarraBend, are housed in four story low-rise buildings.

Each loft spans over two levels with the ground level Lofts including a courtyard and those on the upper levels boasting a rooftop garden.

Each loft shares one party wall and are designed around hubs of eight neighbours with individual open spaces.

Director of sales at Glenvill, Ashley Bramich, explains that the unique design of the Lofts creates a community feel.

He its captures the demand in the market for something in between a townhouse and an apartment.

“The low-rise boutique buildings are designed to make people feel connected to the community, without the density of an apartment building,” Bramich says.

“We decided to include the loft floorplans in the YarraBend masterplan to offer a solution to buyers who are looking to purchase in the inner city region, but can’t afford a house and land package, or a townhouse, and don’t want to live in an apartment.”

Attracting urban professionals and empty nesters in the sub-$1 million price range, buyers have been willing to buy off the plan.

“Cookie cutter apartment designs won’t cut it,” he said.
