Live City, a $750 million urban regeneration project in Melbourne’s inner west, is a fully integrated and mixed-use master-planned community.

With international experience, R&F Property Australia is passionate about transforming vacant sites into revitalised and productive residential havens. Their team has been working extensively with Heritage Victoria for the last two years to ensure the development meets the board’s requirements.


Where the Kinnears Ropeworks factory, established in 1902, once stood, Live City will rise in a set of towers with configurations of 1, 2, and 3 bedroom apartments. With floor to ceiling glass and external panels to maximise light and warmth during the day, each residence will grant expansive views over the cityscape.


A natural, neutral palette reflects the earthy and tactile elements of the Kinnears factory. Metallic elements can be found in the joinery as a modern representation of the site’s industrial history.

On the upper-level podiums, residents can gather in the communal bar and lounge where multi-purpose rooms are the perfect place to entertain against a backdrop of sweeping views of Australia’s most liveable city.


Outside, a dining and retail precinct will feature boutique retail stores, as well as cafés and restaurants. Expressively decorated laneways border each side, and commissioned artwork will feature homages to the Kinnears factory. A public plaza acts as an anchor to this ‘town’ centre, a space where homeowners can greet passing neighbours, a space for convenience and connection.


Live City will suit all lifestyles. Higher education students will find Victoria University only 750m away, while parents will love the proximity to a range of high-end schooling options. Footscray College, Gilmore Girls College and Maribyrnong College are all within 2km of the residences, while Footscray North Primary School and St John’s Primary School are both just over 1km away.

Families, first homeowners and downsizers alike will enjoy the nearness of 66 hectares of open green space. Footscray Park, Maribyrnong River and River Reserve, and Flemington Racecourse are all within walking distance.


On the weekends, residents can visit Highpoint Shopping Centre, the second largest of its kind in Victoria. With over 500 stores, there is something for everyone.

Live City stage 1 release is now available. Capitalise on these heritage-inspired residences during the urban regeneration of Footscray and select one of the premium apartments. Corner apartments feature generously sized balconies and expansive views.

Live City will be released in stages over the next coming years, construction has already commenced.
