The Melbourne-based Orb Property Partners has launched their latest project, WOBO, a collection of industrial-inspired apartments in North Melbourne.

Designed by the renowned architecture firm Fender Katsalidis and set in landscaping by Oculus, the warehouse-style apartments form the beginning of Orb's, The Tapestry development, which, when complete, will be a new creative precinct in the heart of North Melbourne.

"Designed for the many, home to the eclectic," is Orb's approach to The Tapestry.

The Tapestry will be released over five stages, and, as well as residential apartments, will also feature a skatepark, theatre, hotel, and rooftop dining.

WOBO (West of Boundary), combines New York-style warehouse living with the unmistakably warm feeling of home, drawing on colours, textures and fabrics of a modern community.

Drawing inspiration from the industrial fabric of the area, a striking articulated brick podium creatively re-uses materials from the former factory site.

The soaring upper floors are a contrast of steel and glass, with bold accents of living greenery and unrivalled city aspects. The raw materiality continues inside, with recycled brickwork greeting residents in the lobby and exposed concrete ceilings set high inside the apartments.

Crowning the apartments is the rooftop terrace, complete with outdoor dining, firepit area, seating pods and views to the city, Royal Park and Docklands.

The private Members Lounge is set directly below the roof terrace on level 11, reimagining communal space. The private lounge features a central fireplace and modular lounges and has been specifically designed for conversation, connection and community.

There are one, two, and three-bedroom apartments on offer at WOBO, as well as a handful of penthouses. 

Completion of WOBO expected mid-2024.

While itself set to be a lifestyle precinct, The Tapestry is located a short walk from local shops and amenities, as well as Macaulay Station.
