Time Out's annual list of the 49 coolest neighbourhoods in the world, ranks the Melbourne suburb of Richmond as tenth on the list. 

Richmond is the best-performing Australian suburb on the list, beating out Sydney's Surry Hills at 19. 

The rankings were based on the Time Out Index survey, which this year polled 27,000 city-dwellers on what they loved and loathed about where they live. 

Time Out's panel of experts then ranked the suburbs, noting key aspects including food, drink, nightlife and suburban culture.

"Judges paid particular attention to how communities have been looking after each other, as well as their green credentials as we tackle the climate crisis that affect us all," said Time Out editorial director Cassidy Knowlton.

"Richmond is a close-knit community," she noted.

Recent apartment offerings include the boutique Richmond townhouse project, Gramercy Terraces at the site of the former Nine Network studio in Bendigo Street, Richmond. 

Lendlease released three and four bedroom freehold townhouse, designed by architects Bates Smart priced from $1.85 million in April. 

The Degroup Property Development founded by Colin DeLutis in 1973, saw its Sprout Richmond development sell out earlier this year. It was 15 townhouses set to achieve a 6.7star NatHERS rating, translating to a reduced carbon footprint and cost savings on energy bills at 62 Glass Street.

Apartments remain for sale at TWO51 on Swan, with a grand lobby rich with gold detailing and art deco opulence, set back off Richmond's bustling Swan Street. 

The Blueprint Projects development has been architecturally designed by Watson Young Architects, with a collection of 28 two, three and four bedroom residences.

Another project, with a 2022 completion date, and with prices from $1.35 million, is the Shelley St development which will feature nine townhouses with two and three bedrooms across three floors.

Private and spacious rooftop courtyards and street facing garden entrances create a special sense of home with a dedication to greenery and tranquil outdoor spaces at the project designed by DKO Architecture and SLAB.
