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. 

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 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.
