From its wealth of amenities to its easy connectivity, there are plenty of reasons why the coveted suburb of Ascot Vale was selected by Pace Development Group as the location for their latest project.

Popular among first-time buyers, busy young working professionals and families alike, Ascot Vale benefits from being just 4km from Melbourne’s CBD with regular public transport to get there via the 57 tram or the train from nearby Ascot Vale train station. Proximity to a host of major hospitals also makes Pace of Ascot Vale perfect for health workers – definitely a positive for investors looking for the perfect spot.

This prime location offers a vibrant inner-city lifestyle driven by a thriving, eclectic community with a host of cafés, restaurants, and shopping. Most of it surrounds Pace of Ascot Vale thanks to its ideal location on the juncture of Mount Alexander Road and North Street.


You only have to step out onto Mt Alexander Road to discover a vast array of shops, cafes and restaurants to your doorstep. Whether you’re looking for Spanish tapas, classic Italian food or Vietnamese cuisine or, it’s all moments away.

A little further Union Road is home to Middle Child Cafe or No. 19 Café – the perfect brunch spot. Ascot Food Store is also a favoured spot for scrumptious breakfasts. Meanwhile, the project itself features plenty of ground floor retail with a Woolworths Metro already confirmed as the landmark tenant.

Nightlife also delivers here thanks to bars like Vale Bar & Eatery, Jimmy’s Tap & Barrel for a selection of craft beers, Dreux Bar & Restaurant, and the always-popular Union Hotel for classic pub fare.


A mix of vintage and contemporary properties, the neighbourhood displays a broad architectural spectrum and with its curved external facade, Pace of Ascot Vale will bring an art deco energy to this vibrant area thanks to its prominent corner location.

For the apartment interiors, renowned interior design firm Adele Bates created something equally well-considered. Their contemporary, comfortable designs delivered style and affordability to appeal to a wide range of buyers with interiors that have been specifically created to maximise natural light and space.

Thoughtful details such as built-in robes, wide natural timber flooring, and sheer blinds have all been included as standard throughout. Adele believes in continually being inspired and approaches each project uniquely, ensuring it is well considered, well crafted and designed with purpose.

“Ascot Vale is an active and dynamic area,” says Adele. “So Pace of Ascot Vale was designed for a wide-spread demographic that has a social and professional lifestyle.”


That widespread demographic is catered for thanks to a choice of two neutral colour schemes, light or dark, allowing them to tailor the home to their specific tastes and build upon them with their own furnishings, artwork and prized possessions.

Perfect for entertaining, kitchens are particularly sleek, thanks to a Miele induction cooktop and oven, and fridge/freezer from Asko.

“The standout amenities in the project can be found in the detail and tactile materials such as the terrazzo offset, with the elegant Lambert Fils feature pendant positioned over the kitchen’s island bench,” explains Adele.

The layout of each residence came about through a considered process to ensure maximum liveability. “We always ensured the apartment layouts are sensitive to the way people live. We then worked up concepts in 3D paired with materials, before we finally resolved the concept in fine detail.”

Pace of Ascot Vale is now selling with a broad selection of apartment options available including 2 bedrooms, 2 bath and 1 car space start from $550k, or 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 car spots from $645k.
