Coppins Corner represents the luxurious residential element of Melbourne’s exciting new cultural project, The Malt District.

Inspired by New York’s meatpacking district, esteemed architects Fender Katsalidis, landscape architects Oculus and developer Caydon look to transform the abandoned industrial Nylex Clock site into Melbourne’s most vibrant cultural address.

article-imageThe Malt District project boasts modern creative workspaces, retail outlets, eateries, open green courtyard areas and even an artisanal grocery store – all built among new and preserved heritage buildings. The precinct can be navigated by a tangle of laneways, all bound together by a boutique and rustic vibe. The rich history of The Malt District will attract locals and visitors alike to come to the site’s micro brewery and gastropub. Here, drinks and dinner can be enjoyed among a decor of bare brick, lush ivy and fairy lights, where textures and colours are in keeping with the flavour of the project.

The Malt District has now launched its first stage of luxurious residential apartments. Coppins Corner offers one, two and three bedroom apartments and 6 exclusive small office/home offices (Soho’s) featuring 2 and 3 bedroom apartments above ground floor commercial space.

The building’s remarkable facade is comprised of concrete, metal and glass materials that dynamically incorporate the site’s heritage while projecting a 21st century allure. The exterior design features distinctive balconies that offer residents some of the best views of Melbourne money can buy.


Expansive glass surrounds the apartment’s living area, filling the room with natural light and opening up to sights of the gorgeous tree-lined Yarra river below. The interior design emits a raw, industrial feel through high, exposed concrete ceilings and wide oak timber floorboards. Thoughtful assembly of these complementary textures and hues characterise the modern industrial design, resulting in a contemporary space with historic roots.
The kitchen area is built with culinary passion in mind and fitted with high-end European appliances including an integrated dishwasher and concealed refrigerator. Stone benches and splashbacks are enhanced by recessed shelving and a stylish ribbon of timber and rustic bronze glass that wraps around the backdrop of the kitchen.

The bedroom also benefits from floor to ceiling glass features, extending the panoramic views across the apartment. Residents will enjoy spacious built-in wardrobes and soft carpet underfoot.


Director of Planning and Design at Fender Katsalidis Architects, David Sutherland, commented, “These interiors exude elegance amidst a delicate weave of light and depth.”

In the bathroom, industrial design meets elegance as marbled shelving is coupled with rustic bronze taps and dark timber cabinets. 

Aside from the enviable array of amenities that The Malt District has to offer, Coppins Corner itself boasts a fully equipped health club, rooftop dining with a catering kitchen and BBQ facilities and a lounge-cum-library relaxation area with an elegant feature fireplace.


Beyond the charming offering of The Malt District lies the rest of Richmond's beckoning neighbourhood. Rich with budding creative businesses and sought-after lunch venues, the area’s reputation is rapidly growing in Melbourne. Health and fitness facilities and a cultivated art scene are among RIchmond’s highlights, too. 
It’s no surprise that businesses and house hunters alike are eyeing up the area. Its proximity to the CBD makes commuting a walk in the park – in just 10 minutes the city centre can be reached by car or public transport and 35 minutes will be enough time to get there via, well, a walk in the park through Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens.

Coppins Corner offers residents the chance to live in the heart of Richmond's new cultural hub with one bedroom apartments starting from $496,000, two bedrooms from $660,000, three bedrooms from $1,242,000 and SoHo's from $1,570,500.
