With thirty boutique residences starting at $515,000 at Felton & Grimwade, and strong growth projected for West Melbourne in the coming years, now is the time to invest in the well-connected lifestyle that these residences afford. 

As the West Melbourne area develops into a bustling extension of the Melbourne CBD, The West Melbourne Structure Plan ensures that the unique character and heritage of the area is retained. A new high street will be created along Spencer Street, with a proposed extension of the tram network along Spencer Street to Footscray and Arden Street. 10,000 sqm of open space will be available in the area, with employment floorspace to deliver 10,000 jobs. The plan identifies five distinct areas that will be unique in character and qualities to make up the broader West Melbourne locality: Spencer, Flagstaff, Adderley, Station Precinct and Historic Hilltop.

In addition, there are several infrastructure projects currently underway which will imbue West Melbourne with an even deeper connection to Melbourne CBD and the Western suburbs. These include the $11 billion Metro Tunnel project, estimated for completion in 2025. Including five new underground stations, this project will create a new rail line from Sunbury in the West to Cranbourne and Pakenham in the South-East. One of the new stations will be the new North Melbourne station, located just half a kilometre from the current North Melbourne station, which will become West Melbourne station.

An abundance of culture and opportunity right on your doorstep
