The past definitely meets the future at one of Melbourne’s most historic icons, the Yorkshire Brewery, where some seriously exclusive homes are already for sale.
There is an exciting new development brewing (sorry for the pun, but I just had to) called The Yorkshire, which will cover 4,500-square-metres, house 700 residents and be a catalyst for the Collingwood area. There are options of apartments or townhouses and trust me, having had a look around, both are extremely schmick! Just check out these pictures from the display suite.
The very talented folk at SMA Projects and Hayball have definitely paid homage to the industrial heritage of the site’s most prominent feature, the brewery tower. The whole development has been planned around the tower and the site is surrounded by several existing laneways that lead into a landscaped piazza called Yorkshire Square. This will eventually be home to a café, wine bar and deli (so Melbourne, right?). There’s even going to be five whole-floor apartments in the tower, which it was surreal to be standing in, considering until recently, no-one had been it for 20 years.
I was in absolute awe when I stepped foot into the display suite. A gorgeous contrasting colour palette with dark wooden floors, stone bench tops, greys and whites. The most exciting feature (well I think so anyway) is the guest suites, which are for the exclusive use of residents and are designed to accommodate visiting family and friends, offering them their own hotel room. How handy would that be? There will also be a fabulous rooftop sanctuary, kitchen BBQ area, private dining room, library and health club (including a yoga space).
If you’re interested in checking out this new development, a display suite is located on site at 84 Wellington Street, Collingwood and is open Tuesday-to- Sunday. Construction has commenced and is due for completion at the end of 2015.
