Inspired by the ease and convenience of city living, 88 Leveson combines the best design, functionality and practicality to offer an effortless lifestyle. Presented by Cedar Woods, Adele Bates, Genton, mdg and Marshall White Projects, this North Melbourne development thoughtfully packages urban living with the highest standards of a low-maintenance lifestyle. 


All townhomes feature intelligently designed and incredibly spacious, open-plan living spaces that complement their eclectic neighbourhood. Purchasers can choose from a range of floorplans with options to include a personal lift to enhance day-to-day living. There is also an option to convert an entire floor into a decadently spacious master bedroom with a walk-through robe and ensuite. 

Mirroring the materiality and proportion of the former warehouse site, large double-glazed windows invite an abundance of natural light into each level. This feature reduces daily energy consumption and enhances thermal regulation without compromising on the north-facing views. The architectural design also integrates natural cross-flow ventilation, reducing reliance on artificial cooling and adding to the airy ambience. 

The material palette is as aesthetically pleasing as it is durable. Natural timber and stone surfaces contrast against the premium water-efficient tapware while high-end European appliances create kitchens that offer elegance and longevity. Marc Debney, Principal of Genton, says 88 Leveson townhomes were “conceived for owner-occupiers. Each dwelling comprises open living spaces for entertaining on the first floor and large bedrooms on the upper floors providing a private sanctuary, culminating in a sun-drenched rooftop terrace with views across the charming North Melbourne skyline.”


All 88 Leveson townhomes feature a stunning rooftop terrace in place of a traditional backyard. The terrace meets all the expectations of a private green space with a built-in barbecue, alfresco dining area and verdant landscaping that mingles with the architecture - without all the maintenance that tend to come with a backyard. Residents will also have the added advantage of a dynamic vista - something no traditional backyard can offer.

In addition to the private rooftop terrace, the surrounding areas also present a host of open-air and green spaces. North Melbourne and its surroundings are home to Melbourne’s finest gardens and reserves, including Carlton Gardens and Royal Park. 88 Leveson puts its residents in a prime position to make the most of all things ‘Melbourne” without much effort - residents will be spoilt for choice when planning their next outing. The vibrant suburb boasts multiple destinations, including the nearby Queen Victoria Market. A true Melbourne institution, the market offers the freshest produce, lively night markets, and a world of delectable deli delights just moments from 88 Leveson. 


Additionally, Collins Street and Emporium is only a short stroll away and home to an endless procession of designer boutiques. Melbourne’s iconic laneways and arcades are also within arms reach, making it easier than ever to browse and shop the very best in artisan wares - easily accessible without having to drive. 

Despite the development’s minimal environmental footprint and low maintenance, 88 Leveson offers lifestyle upgrades on several fronts. Three and four-bedroom residences are priced from $1,695,000 to $1,985,000. For more information on living life to the fullest at North Melbourne, enquire about 88 Leveson townhomes today.
