Urban’s tour of the Live City display suite

Designed by renowned architect Elenberg Fraser, the master-planned-project has retained and repurposed many elements of the former Kinnears Ropeworks Factory, from the classic exposed brickwork and steel trusses to the organic materials used throughout the interiors. 

Live City kitchens boast the ease of luxury within every aspect of design, with elegant brushed stainless steel fixtures, reconstituted stone benchtops and Smeg appliances. 

The interiors are sophisticated and modern, and floor-to-ceiling joinery grants residents unparalleled outlooks from each room and encourages plenty of natural light to fill living areas.

Engineered acoustic timber flooring throughout brings each home a modern aesthetic and offers residents a coveted low maintenance lifestyle. Live City bathrooms include sleek walk-in showers, complete with modern shower nooks and rainfall showerheads.

The bedrooms feature generous storage, soft carpet with some including adjoining balconies where residents can take in the stunning views of the surrounding landscape.

A rooftop terrace offers the perfect retreat to relax and unwind, while the resident's lounge provides excellent facilities for hosting dinner parties or to connect with neighbours.

Live City is perfectly positioned in the vicinity of multi-million dollar infrastructure upgrades, including the brand new Footscray Hospital, and walking distance to Melbourne's sought after Victoria University.

Also within a 1-kilometre radius is Flemington Racecourse, Footscray Train Station and plenty of great local boutiques, grocers, cafes and restaurants. 

Stage one of Live City's master-planned community is now complete and apartments are selling now. To secure your new home in Melbourne's vibrant suburb of Footscray, reach out to a Live City sales agent today.
