The Argyle on Johnston is a new project set to take advantage of Abbotsford’s perfect combination of vibrant lifestyle and green surrounds.

A visually stunning building of one, two and three bedroom apartments from innovative H Developments, The Argyle has been elegantly designed by Fieldwork Architecture. They know a thing or two about finding the true character of a neighbourhood and creating buildings that make the most of it.

With its facade of threaded bronze wire shutters and textured concrete, Argyle strikes a confident image. At ground level, the retail and cafe tenancies will connect the building with the surrounding neighbourhood, and make grabbing that morning coffee possible without even waking up.


Argyle’s residences are open plan and light-filled thanks to expansive glazing. Timber finish flooring and a soothing neutral colour palette create a sense of tranquility here. Generous terraces and balconies open up these residences to genuine outdoor living, with plenty of space for dining and entertaining in the fresh air.

The simple elegance of the kitchens belies their functionality, with moveable, slimline island benches, seamless cabinetry, stone splashbacks and bronze detailing that brings the exterior colouring and materiality of the building inside.

Bathrooms continue the same combination of materials for a coherent aesthetic, including large format tiling, contrasting dark floor tiles and bronze finish shelving. The contemporary vanity unit reflects the same style of the island benches from the kitchen, whilst the mirrored cabinetry keeps these spaces tidy and calm.


Head up to the roof and you’ll find the resident’s rooftop terrace, complete with secluded dining spaces, bbq facilities, plenty of seating and relaxing lounges. This is where you can relax after a busy day or invite friends over for a weekend gathering, all with breathtaking views.

Abbotsford’s greatest appeal is its perfect balance of vibrant lifestyle and the lush, natural environment of its riverside location. This lush parkland trail that hugs the Yarra River has long been a tranquil destination for those looking for a touch of the countryside in surprisingly close proximity to the CBD.

There’s plenty of choice for food, drink and of course coffee, with local favourites including Three bags Full, Kelso’s Sandwich Shoppe and Dr Morse Bar & Eatery. You’re also a short walk from some of Melbourne’s most vibrant shopping and cultural venues along Smith and Brunswick Streets where you’ll find an ever-growing crop of cool bars, eateries and boutique stores.


Head in the opposite direction and you’re in the thick of Richmond’s energetic bar and live music scene. And, of course, nearby Victoria Street puts some of Melbourne’s tastiest Asian cuisine on your doorstep.

Convenience is a big drawcard for many choosing to live in Abbotsford’s positioning. Victoria Street train station is just 200 metres away. But you could equally cycle into the city along the picturesque Yarra Trail.

H Development is taking everything this leafy location has going for it and wrapping it up in a premium quality residence, defining a fresh kind of lifestyle with their design-focused approach.
