Melbourne's inner-eastern suburbs, from Fitzroy North to Cremorne in the south, has undergone a gentrification over the last five years, but has still retained its affordability and its industrial charm.

The spill from the bustling Richmond, the hub of the inner-east, has seen neighbouring suburbs enjoy a rejuvenation of the old warehouses of the past. They now home craft breweries and cool restaurants which are driving the appeal.

And the inner-east's affordability, just north of the pricey Stonnington LGA, and its proximity to the CBD, has buyers keen on moving in to the area.

Urban has had a look at two of the best brand new, ready to move in apartments in the inner-east.

Park House, Abbotsford
Prices: Starting from $505,000

The Park House is the newest development by the Salta Properties, one of Australia's largest privately owned companies.

The Park House location is one of its standout features. Its Victoria Street address puts The Park House on the banks of the Yarra River, as well as directly opposite Kew and Studley Parklands, all still just three kilometres to the CBD.

"Set on the Yarra River, Park House provides the opportunity for residents to explore the local surroundings in all its beauty with the Yarra Trail, Boat House and Tea Garden and Melbourne’s best open-access golf course, Yarra Bend around the corner. 

"With tram routes 12 and 109 on the doorstep of Park House and North Richmond station just a short walk away, travel to and from the CBD is a breeze creating an easy commute for those working in the city. "
Salta's managing director Sam Tarascio

The nine level building has been designed by SJB Architects and is finished with interiors by Sue Carr at Carr Design Group

“The design team was determined to create buildings of dynamic and identifiable character…located within a significant precinct along the Yarra River," one of SJB's founding directors Michael Bialek says.

Each apartment features Gaggeneau appliances in the kitchen, engineered oak floors and marble-effect stone. 

The sustainable 6+ energy rated development includes a number of resident only amenities, including a swimming pool and gym, cinema, a lounge and library space, kids play hut, bike workshop and even a golf simulation room.

There are only one and two bedroom apartments left, with one beds priced from $515,000 and two bedroom apartments from $740,000.

Coppins Corner,  Cremorne
Prices: Starting from $462,000

Coppins Corner is the newest Cremorne development by Caydon, who are transforming the former Nylex site into The Malt District, a mixed-use residential and commercial development that retains elements of its industrial past.

Coppins Corner is stage one of the project, and has a historical local reference to the 1850s Richmond and Cremorne identity George Coppin.

The split-level tower of 15 and 12-storeys, designed by Fender Katsalidis, homes 209 one, two and three bedroom apartments, with retail and hospitality located on the lower levels.

"The iconic nature of the site, paired with the location being within close proximity to Melbourne’s CBD and sporting precinct has attracted many buyer types to The Malt District.

“Whether you’re an upgrader, a downsizer or a first home buyer, there’s something pretty special about owning an apartment within a precinct that is quintessentially Melbourne.”

Caydon's sales and marketing director Steve Williams

Residents will have access to the health club, where there's a state of the art gym, relaxation centre, steam room and sauna, as well as a meditation room and massage pod.

The rooftop features a lush garden with outdoor seating, undercover barbecue facilities and a kitchen.

Prices start from $462,000 for a one bedroom apartment, from $695,000 for the two bedders and the three bedroom apartments from $1.4 million.
