Elevated above the humble workers’ cottages and cobblestone lanes of West and North Melbourne, Volaire will stand as a landmark of quality in a previously undiscovered pocket community on the edge of the CBD.

Developer Cbus Property is bringing ten levels of modern residential living to West Melbourne, a suburb which is quickly becoming one of the city’s most sought-after locations.

Over the past decade, the inner-northwest has transformed from a rugged industrial area into an emerging cultural precinct, peppered with independent shops, cafés and restaurants. Where factories and warehouses once pounded to the sounds of industry, they’re now buzzing with diners, music- lovers and shoppers. This vivid change has provided the perfect social and architectural background for Volaire.


Inside Volaire, Hayball’s smartly-designed one and two-bedroom apartments offer relaxed comfort and uninterrupted views that stretch out in every direction.

Neutral interior tones provide a blank canvas for residents’ personal tastes against a backdrop of bay, city or distant-ranges views which can be enjoyed from light-filled living spaces and generous private balconies.

The interior designers of Volaire have captured the character of modern living in Melbourne’s inner-northwest. Entertainers’ kitchens use Caesarstone benchtops, mirrored glass splashbacks, timber flooring and 2-pak polyurethane cupboard joinery with bespoke timber handles.


Finishes and materials extend into the tiled bathrooms with satin chrome fittings, frameless showers, and an abundance of storage in the bathroom vanities and shaving cabinets.

Café and retail spaces establish the scene at ground level, but it’s the sixth-
floor residents lounge and outdoor space that sets Volaire apart. The residents lounge is a space to relax in privacy or socialise with the neighbours while enjoying dramatic views of the city.

Outside, landscaped garden beds, intimate seating arrangements and shade-trees create a nature-inspired retreat above street level. A fully-equipped alfresco barbecue and built-in dining space also makes for easy entertaining.


Volaire’s location stands out for its connectivity. The entrance to the busy North Melbourne station is right on the doorstep, with the City Loop, Docklands and Southern Cross Station – Victoria’s principal transport hub – just one stop away.

Frequent bus services from the station’s forecourt provide direct routes to nearby education and health precincts. Alternatively, the tram stops on Victoria Street are a short stroll away, connecting you to Melbourne’s east. For those looking to stretch their legs, the city centre or Docklands are only a 20-minute walk.

Melbourne’s inner-northwest is also home to Australia’s top health and educational institutions including Melbourne University. This, among other world-renowned institutions, is just an easy tram, bus or train ride from Volaire. Its proximity to campus, the State Library and local cafés gives it that University-town vibe, but its connection with the wider city means you can still take a break from the books and enjoy some important down time.


Volaire’s price range and proximity to the city is sure to attract young professionals and postgraduate students. One-bedroom apartments start at just $389,600 and two-bedroom from $581,500.

Volaire apartments offer the best of both worlds, a village lifestyle in a trendy neighbourhood, and unparalleled connection with the rest of the city.
