Taking its name from the leafy suburb it resides in, Abbot is about to deliver a series of exquisite residences into the cool and cosmopolitan streets of Abbotsford.

Developer Meydan has been crafting residential projects for over twenty years and with Abbot, they have aimed their attention squarely at the owner-occupier, teaming up with Wireframe Architecture to create this collection of luxury one, two and three bedroom apartments.

A low-rise boutique project of just four levels, this is a building designed to nestle considerately into the surrounding architectural landscape. In particular, the use of red bricks for the corner facade taps directly into the area’s post-industrial character.

Open plan living areas, floor to ceiling glazing and a wealth of sophisticated materials and finishes combine to create homes that invite enjoyment and offer plenty of opportunity to add your own personal touch. Colour schemes come in a choice of light or dark and each features natural timber floorboards.

Kitchens, geometric in style, feature a range of high-end fixtures and materials including stone finish benchtops and elegantly tiled splashbacks, all expertly fitted out with sleek cabinetry.

Each home at Abbot has its own private courtyard or terrace, providing a genuine opportunity to create the perfect indoor-outdoor lifestyle. With perforated metal feature elements that continue the geometric theme, there’s room for dining, entertaining or relaxing with a book.


When it comes to shared spaces there’s a generous communal courtyard, decked out with ample seating and dining areas, cosy nooks to relax in and lush landscaping to create the perfect spot for a weekend gathering with friends.

Each apartment also includes secure underground car parking and a storage locker. For buyers looking for something a little bigger, there is a handful of exclusive, larger three bedroom residences that offer two car parking spots.

One of Melbourne’s greenest inner suburbs, Abbotsford’s quiet and leafy streets are less than 4km from the CBD – close enough for many locals to take the healthy bike journey to work. Otherwise, North Richmond train station is less than 500m away.


An eclectic foodie destination, the number of cool eateries, cafes and restaurants continues to attract young professionals and equally young families looking for the perfect lifestyle in an engaging neighbourhood with something new to explore every day.

The bustling farmer’s markets, gallery spaces and community activities of nearby Abbotsford Convent will fill many a weekend, whilst the Collingwood Children’s Farm is always a firm family favourite.

You’ll be a short walk to the retail precincts along Victoria and Johnston Streets. And, of course, Abbotsford is just minutes from buzzing Collingwood and Fitzroy where Melbourne’s artsy communities combine with the best coffee, cheap eats, eclectic fashion and music around.

Stamp duty savings are still currently available for both owner-occupiers and investors, and for anyone seeking a high-quality home in a growth suburb, Abbot certainly lives up to its promise of a new era of inner city living.

The Abbot display suite is open Saturdays and Sundays from 2 to 4pm, and is located on the corner of Mollison Street and Victoria Crescent.
