Urban's three favourite things about River One:

  • The panoramic views across parklands and Melbourne CBD views.
  • A vibrant community space.
  • Impressive amenities and apartment sizes.

Step into the vibrant village atmosphere that is Footscray’s River One. CHT Architects and developer Blue Earth Group have collaborated to create this high-rise with an exciting assemblage of ground-level retail outlets and commercial spaces that blend perfectly with the flurry of Melbourne’s famous laneways and tasteful street art.

Located at 6 Joseph Road, Footscray, exceptional comfort and livability were at the forefront of the vision for River One. With 210 dwellings spread across 28 floors, the building draws inspiration from the Maribyrnong’s historic maritime atmosphere. Its soaring facade boasts floor-to-ceiling glass and takes colours from dark grey and black palettes.

With premium frontages on the banks of the Maribyrnong River, you are able to step outside your home to the vast communal amenities available within arms reach with bike trails, boardwalks, jetty piers and the vibrant cultural melting pot of restaurants and markets at Footscray Central, just moments from the development.

Experience resort-style living with River One’s communal outdoor and recreational landscapes designed by Rush Wright and Associates.

River One, Footscray AMENITIES INCLUDE:

  • A podium garden
  • Indoor pavilion
  • Outdoor kitchens and seating pods
  • A large heated pool overlooking the gardens and city
  • A gymnasium
  • Yoga centre and health retreat
  • A cinema
  • Function business centre
  • A proposed restaurant and green grocer on ground level

Featuring an impressive private cinema, lavishly furnished with a foyer and bar, River One is a dream home for future residents. The building’s fully-equipped business centre means that you won’t ever need to leave this all-inclusive village.

With one, two, and three-bedroom residences and premium townhomes, River One offers carefully detailed interiors with ageless palettes, expansive space, and abundant light. Enjoy oak flooring in living areas and plush carpets in the bedrooms, and be wowed by the high-quality fittings and finishes throughout.

Be part of Melbourne’s most exciting and diverse communities, with an eclectic array of African, Asian and European restaurants, markets and boutiques within walking distance.

Close to Victoria University, Highpoint Shopping Centre, Flemington Racecourse, Footscray Market and soon the new Footscray Hospital, with expected completion in 2021, River One residents are never too far from everyday needs. Just 4km from the CBD, River One gets an exclusive front row seat with uninterrupted views of the World’s most Liveable City and its tranquil and serene parklands and waterways.

The tower is expected to be completed by mid 2020 with its first residents moving in, so you better be quick because apartments are limited!
