Inspired by heritage character, designed for contemporary living, Howard West is a signature development for inner Melbourne. The original building was once a thriving hat factory, and that tradition of craftsmanship, attention to detail and individual style is brought to life in seventeen exclusive townhomes, lofts and apartments.
The homes are set behind the building's original brickwork, almost like a hidden garden. The sense of enclosure is unique in such an urban environment, providing a quiet living space on the edge of the city. Residents can truly enjoy the best of both worlds.
The eight townhomes are arranged in a traditional English mews style setting, standing three levels tall with a flexible basement floor, courtyard garden and rooftop deck, with view back to the city. Meanwhile, nine two-bedroom apartments and lofts are nestled within the original heritage structure with generous outdoor terraces. As Tim Jackson of renowned architects Jackson Clements Burrows describes it, "In every way Howard West is highly considered, from the retention of heritage surrounds to the surrounding landscaped gardens and carefully detailed residences within."
On the doorstep of Howard West is a world of choice. In and around West Melbourne you can dine, study, work and play. From the restaurant and cafe strips of North Melbourne to the world-class health and education of Parkville, the bustling shopping and business heart of the CBD itself, the best of inner-city living is at your door.
