Urban's three favourite things about Live City:

  • The proud heritage and cultural community precinct.
  • Spacious apartments with natural light and warmth for affordable prices.
  • Proximity to Footscray's fresh food market.

Soon to unfold in Melbourne’s ever-changing suburb of Footscray is the new landmark master-planned community, Live City. Comprising 208 residences spread across 14 floors, the stage one high-rise embraces the industrial past of the neighbourhood as it plays a key role in shaping its vibrant future. Designed by Elenberg Fraser, the first stage is but one of eight buildings planned for the project over 6-8 years and include as many as 1,450 apartments overall.

The building delivers a bold facade that incorporates a broad palette of materials in neutral tones. Celebrating an abundance of glazing, the exterior features bold undulating strips that wrap around the structure, giving it a rippled edge in its triumphant rise. At the pinnacle, you’ll find a communal rooftop with abundant resident facilities.

Step into your own private sanctum and you’ll be impressed by the spacious open plan layouts and floor-to-ceiling windows that filter in an abundance of natural light. With clean, contemporary lines throughout, interiors are graced with natural colours and textures that reflect the earthy, industrial heritage of the area.

The luxurious kitchen will have you wanting to put your culinary skills to good use, boasting timber flooring, reconstituted stone benchtops, concealed storage, and premium appliances. Living areas transition seamlessly to your private balcony through expansive glass doors, giving you a perfect place to indulge in breathtaking views of the city.

Apartments are available in one, two, and three-bedroom configurations, all featuring built-in wardrobes and en-suite facilities. Luxurious bathrooms are fitted out with an exquisite shower as well as built-in storage in the shower recess, vanity, and under the sink.

Backed by developer R&F Property Australia, this development brings together a fully-integrated, mixed-use community that’s thriving with character and history. The Live City village will feature bustling laneways where residents can enjoy boutique shops, cafes, restaurants, fresh food supermarkets, and more amenities. 

The array of buildings that make up the mixed use precinct contain affordable apartment living and high end amenities and public space with an Art and Eat Street. The town centre and green spaces surrounded by heritage facades echo Footscray’s history whilst a modern and active health centre dedicated healthy living and a fresh food market provide locals and visitors with everyday needs.

In walking distance of Footscray Market, residents will have fresh produce and a myriad of restaurants to dine at with flavours from all parts of the world. With Footscray as a melting pot for diversity, community means a whole lot to the suburb who embrace difference and unity.

Stage One of Live city is complete with residents moving in late 2019 to the 208 apartments located front facing Ballarat Road. Prices for the building are affordable with spacious one bedroom apartments starting at $390,000 with 50-65 square metres of living space.

Timber flooring, reconstituted stone benchtops and metallic highlights make up the colour scheme with the latest premium appliances and concealed storage, creating a seamless and smooth surface. Each apartment enjoys floor to ceiling glazed windows to invite in the maximum amount of natural light and warmth during the day. Expansive outlooks over the city and precinct make the living experience with this approach extending generously out to the balconies.

The natural and neutral colours and textures reflect the earthy, tactile rope factory heritage with metallic elements in a choice of two colour schemes to personalise one’s own apartment. Glass doors to a private balcony, premium soft finishes, built in wardrobes and storage, an ensuite with a large resort style shower adds to the relaxation and tranquility the apartment will provide its residents.
