With a number of new developments popping up throughout Australian cities, city-living is becoming increasingly accessible. Living in the city opens up a world of opportunities when it comes to jobs and education, as well as proximity to restaurants, entertainment, shopping and important facilities like hospitals.
Living in the city places you closer to a wider variety of jobs and education opportunities than living regionally. With people moving back into offices, developments like Queens Place allow you to maximise the opportunities available with close proximity to Melbourne CBD, the University of Melbourne and RMIT. Australia’s economy is increasingly trending towards more people looking for service jobs, and less people looking for work in agriculture and manufacturing. Service jobs, especially professional services, tend to be clustered towards city centres which is clear in the increase in population in major cities.
Food, shopping and entertainment
One of the highlights of city-living is the wonderful variety of restaurants, cafes, entertainment and shopping that are right on your doorstep. Seafarers Residences is located in Melbourne’s CBD right on Flinders Street. Located along the iconic Yarra River, these light-filled residences are within walking distance or a short tram ride of some of the best restaurants in Melbourne including Tipo 00, Chin Chin and Vue de monde. The National Gallery of Victoria, Crown Casino as well as a range of shopping districts like the popular Bourke Street Mall are all just a stone’s throw from your apartment. With everything you need within five kilometres of your front door, city-living has never been more enticing.
Public transport is a huge benefit of living in the city. A low-car or no-car lifestyle is entirely possible when living in developments like Australia 108, where quick and frequent public transport is available right on your doorstep. Most major Australian cities have bus and train networks. Melbourne also has an intricate network of trams, whilst Brisbane is home to a ferry that is easily accessible from the CBD. For those who want to avoid the stress of traffic and congested roads, city-living is the perfect option.
City living is a lifestyle that allows for increased access to opportunities and facilities, making it the perfect option for those not only looking for a wonderful place to live, but an investment in their future.
