In with the old and new

Burnley Maltings stands out due to its unique position in the property landscape, combining the old with the new in a manner that pays respect to Melbourne’s rich history while incorporating modern living amenities.

The project is developed by Urban, a name synonymous with quality and innovation in the industry with an exemplary record in the restoration of heritage spaces evidenced by numerous awards and nominations for excellence in development and delivery of places of heritage significance (such as the Continental Hotel and Lyf Collingwood). These recognitions highlight Urban’s commitment to recreating beautiful homes whilst maintaining history, sustainability and liability at their heart.

At Burnley Maltings, heritage and contemporary townhomes overlook Melbourne City and Yarra River views. Centrally located next to Richmond, Hawthorn, Toorak, and South Yarra, the development is noted for its security and convenience considerations, offering basement car parking with options for lockup garages – a rarity that adds significant value for anyone looking for the convenience of inner-city living combined with the benefits of a traditionally suburban amenity.

Exclusive resident amenities

Among its standout features, Burnley Maltings offers large internal living spaces, expansive rooftop terraces with stunning views of the city and the river, and a notable 1,000 sqm central courtyard designed by renowned landscape architect Jack Merlo, complementing the townhouses.

Terrace homes look into this central courtyard while boasting private garden spaces. As a resident, you can enjoy the very best of outdoor dining and entertaining without leaving your front door.

The development’s attention to detail extends to the fixtures and fittings, offering premium choices, including natural stone, stainless steel benchtops, and appliances by renowned brands Smeg, Miele, and Wolf.

  • 70% BESS equivalent for Australian Excellence, extensive heritage fabric reuse 
  • NatHERS rating of at least 6.5 stars
  • No onsite consumption of fossil fuels
  • A solar panel array that has been designed to specifically make a difference to each resident’s power bill
