Located just meters from thriving Glenferrie Road and some of Hawthorn’s most renowned eateries, high-end boutiques and impeccable community facilities is Arcade - a shimmering landmark development set to become a key feature to this vibrant community. 

Set in the heart of one of Melbourne’s most coveted inner-suburbs, Arcade makes the most of Hawthorn’s rich architectural history and its proximity to Glenferrie Road. Defined by lines of historic shop frontages from the Edwardian era, Arcade residents will be welcomed into the unique village-style charm on offer. 


Glenferrie Road presents a beautiful interplay between the old and the new; while some facades have undergone refurbishments, many original facades still remain offering glimpses into the historic character of the thriving street. We recommend visiting the Railway Arcade which runs parallel to the train line - the quaint strip is flanked by a row of beautiful Edwardian shop frontages complete with original stained glass windows and old-fashioned pillars to transport you back in time. 

More than simply a walk through history, Glenferrie Road also offers Arcade residents fulfilment and convenience in their day to day life. At home within the heartbeat of Hawthorn, this development will encourage residents to embrace a life rich in connectivity, nature and urban vibrance. Boasting world-class amenity, several prestigious educational institutes including the acclaimed Swinburne University, and an enviable connectivity to several of Melbourne’s major cultural hubs, the neighbourhood is enviable, to say the least. 

Enjoy a lively dinner at one of the critically acclaimed restaurants or take a leisurely stroll among nature. Parklands are abundant around Arcade with Central Gardens, Anderson Park and Fairview Park just moments away. In addition to the curated foliage with meandering paths - perfect for an evening stroll or a morning bike ride - there are also hidden ‘green rooms’ for the best Instagram photos. The thoughtful landscaping ensures there is always something in bloom to add layers of colour and fragrance throughout the year. Anderson Park is home to several recreational centres including cricket grounds and a tennis club - surrounded by picturesque mature trees and backdropped by a fantastic view of Melbourne city and the Eastern suburbs. 


Arcade truly transcends typical apartment living to present a wonderfully elevated way of life surrounded by the best lifestyle that Melbourne has to offer. From cafes and restaurants to parklands to education - there’s certainly something for everyone in this tight-knit pocket of Melbourne. One, two and three bedroom apartments at Arcade are priced from $469,500. For more information, click here.
