Owner-occupiers are acting quickly to secure an apartment in Live City at Ropeworks, the latest Footscray development from R&F Property Australia.

Live City is the first stage of the masterplanned development revitalising the historic Kinnears Ropeworks site.

The development brings together a fully integrated, mixed-use community that’s thriving with character and history.

Set amid heritage buildings and laneways, cafes, convenience shopping and public open spaces, the precinct will feature a wide range of apartments in one, two and three-bedroom configurations.

The low maintenance benefits of apartment living have been a big drawcard for owner-occupiers, a testament to the project’s liveable design.

Honouring the past, hints of the old Kinnears will be present throughout the development with a number of early 1900s manufacturing and storage buildings repurposed for the community.

“Design within the public spaces will incorporate its industrial history and antique parts of the factory will be reimagined within the art scene”, the developers said.

Live City will be situated amongst the diverse dining experiences and cultural heritage of Footscray.

Residents in the development enjoy being so close to health and leisure amenities, as well as outdoor spaces, well-serviced transport and numerous stores.

Designed by Hayball Architects, Live City features a neutral palette to reflect the earthy, tactile rope factory heritage.

The apartments feature open-plan living and dining space for entertaining and socialising, with clever storage solutions and premium finishes.

A communal lounge area on an upper podium of the building boasts sweeping views across the Melbourne CBD and the suburbs below.  

With the transformation of Footscray underway, residents are better connected.

Live City is located less than two-kilometres from Footscray Station, serviced by the Metro Tunnel, the 27-kilometre Melbourne Airport Rail link and soon the West Gate Tunnel Project forecast to open in 2023.
