Like many inner suburbs, Preston is transitioning from its industrial past into a bright residential future, with premium projects like Eight Clinch Avenue leading the way.

A collection of one, two and three bedroom apartments, Eight Clinch Avenue is geared toward singles, couples and families with an eye for a vibrant lifestyle in a community-minded suburb that continues to grow in popularity.

There’s a timeless quality to Eight Clinch Avenue’s interiors. Living areas open up to the light and the private balconies thanks to floor to ceiling windows.


Kitchens are functional, stylish and designed for entertaining. Crafted from premium cabinetry they feature quality chrome fittings, stainless steel European appliances, sophisticated stone benchtops and sleek glass splashbacks. The spacious island bench is sure to be a popular gathering place and makes a quick breakfast or simple dinner all the more easy to fit into your day.

On the surface, bathrooms are elegantly simple, yet they hide plenty of storage behind expansive mirrored cabinetry and within the handing vanity. The large format tiling, generous walk-in shower and calming palette combine to make these spaces tranquil.

Eight Clinch Avenue extends the living options of each apartment by adding a layer of amenity to the building. Head up to the rooftop terrace and you’ll discover the perfect spot to entertain guests, relax with a book on the weekend or watch the sunset after yet another busy day at work. There’s plenty of seating, dining areas and spots to simply enjoy the view.


On the ground floor there’s a quiet internal courtyard for relaxing and meeting friends – grab a coffee from the ground floor cafe and head on out. And if you prefer to relax by working up a head of steam, there’s also a fully equipped residents’ gym to keep your fitness goals on track.

Home cooks and foodies will love the fact that the bustling Preston Market is right across the street, with over 70 fresh food stalls including 46 greengrocers, 15 delicatessens and 19 butchers. Grab a coffee in the market’s cool art precinct, Pam Lane, and go for a wander.

Just around the corner, High Street has always been popular with shoppers drawn to the boutique stores, arts scene, cafes and restaurants – local favourites include Pomona, Disco Beans, Little Henri and Chew Burgers.


If you’re looking for bigger retail, Northland Shopping Centre is a five-minute drive away with over 330 stores including Myer, Coles, Kmart, Target and JB Hi-Fi, not to mention the multi-screen Hoyts cinema.

Families will be more than happy with 8 Clinch’s nearby education options, which include Preston West Primary, Sacred Heart, Parade College and Melbourne Polytechnic.

Preston train station is just a short walk, making light work of the quick 10km CBD commute. This connectivity is one of the reasons Preston’s popularity continues to increase along with its growing population.


There’s a steady influx of young professionals keen to tap into everything Melbourne’s inner-north has to offer, driving the area’s high rental demand and adding to the energy and multicultural nature of this eclectic neighbourhood. That demand is clear across the board – median house prices increased by around 11.5% over the past year, making Eight Clinch Avenue an appealing proposition for owner-occupiers as well as investors.
