Collingwood continues to find ways to surprise, and new project Trilby on iconic Smith Street is a residential opportunity that holds more surprises than most.
Developer Spec Property has been creating stylish, premium homes for over twenty years, and their expertise shows. These apartments have clearly been designed to maximise light and space, with floorplans and cabinetry configured to make the best use of every area.

Open plan living areas have natural oak timber flooring and floor to ceiling glazing to maximise light and views, from the Dandenong Ranges to Melbourne CBD.


Trilby’s kitchens are an urban chef’s delight, designed to perfection with details such as feature tiled splashback, slimline cabinetry and an island bench that doubles as a breakfast bar. Smeg appliances, aged bronze tapware and a double sink all add further style and functionality.

Bathrooms are serene, thanks to a considered use of sophisticated materials like large format porcelain tiles and more of that exquisite aged bronze tapware. Bespoke joinery includes open timber shelving, mirrored cabinetry and timber vanity with a built-in towel rail, all working seamlessly to create an efficiently aiming space.

Trilby also features a number of split-level loft apartments, drawing inspiration from Collingwood’s industrial setting. An exclusive number of larger, luxury two and three bedroom residences offer up that utmost quality and sophistication. Highlights include natural herringbone timber flooring, Caesarstone benchtops and upgraded Miele appliances in the kitchen.


Every apartment also comes with underground parking, bike storage and a storage cage.

Trilby features a number of cool residential amenities that deliver even more lifestyle options. How many apartments feature their own private rooftop cinema? There’s one here as part of the extensive landscaped rooftop garden that includes a BBQ, kitchen and dining areas, teppanyaki bar, veggie garden and a range of individual seating areas so everyone can mingle or find their own quiet spot. Invite your friends over – with stunning CBD views, this is the kind of rooftop Melbournians would normally line up for.


Down at street level, there’ll be a cafe and restaurant space so you can grab a coffee on the way out every morning and pick up dinner when you arrive home. There’ll also be retail spaces included to further connect Trilby with its surrounds and create genuine links with the community.

Collingwood’s artistic and creative community are the beating heart of this vibrant neighbourhood. There’s still enough edginess to ensure the streets, the locals and the live music venues remain authentic.

Bars, cafes and eateries are the coolest of cool, whilst the homewares, fashion and furniture boutiques pop up on every corner. From the eclectic mix along Smith Street to the handful of grungy pubs like Gasometer and The Gem; from top notch eats at places like Le Bon Ton and Family Kitchen, to the smoothest coffee blends at South of Johnston or Proud Mary, this is truly the best of what inner city Melbourne is all about.


With convenient city proximity in a neighbourhood that has individual character to spare, Trilby takes in, reimagines and serves up everything Collingwood is famous for.
