Urban's three favourite things about Yarra Bend:

  • A mixed use community precinct with a shopping mall, wellness centre, parklands and community building within its master-plan.
  • A diverse array of apartment buildings designed for space and affordability.
  • Sustainability of the project overall.

Widely regarded as the best mixed-use development site in Melbourne, YarraBend will be made up of apartments, townhouses and house and land packages. Just 6.5km from Melbourne’s CBD, this stunning display of future-focused architecture, is partially settled already and will be complete by 2025.

Several different precincts, each with its own unique character - Range of residences, from luxurious riverfront townhouses to contemporary apartments and studios - Designed by the world's best artists and architects 6.5km from Melbourne’s CBD on the banks of the Yarra River and connected to the Yarra Trails, Yarrabend is the new benchmark for design and urban liveability. 

When complete, it will include up to 2,500 dwellings, 4 parks, major supermarkets, an artisan food hub, a state of the art health and wellness centre, cycling and walking tracks, community centre and an exclusive resident app connecting the suburb. 

It will also be the first inner urban site to achieve a 6/6 EnviroDevelopment rating from the UDIA with a future-proofed, sustainable design. YarraBend is proudly developed by Glenvill.
