6.5km from Melbourne’s CBD on the banks of the Yarra river, YarraBend is the new benchmark for design and urban liveability. Founded on six visionary pillars, such as gastronomy, technology, wellness and sustainability, YarraBend will transform the way we live, work and play.
High tech, low stress living
YarraBend boasts a cutting-edge level of technology, connecting the individual with the YarraBend community through an exclusive residents' app. This smart-wired suburb comes with high-speed internet, free public Wi-Fi and, best of all, a tech concierge on-call to assist with all your syncing, rebooting and installing needs.
Learning, connecting, creating
At YarraBend, we want to give people the opportunity to learn and grow, and instil an appreciation for creative thinking. As well as having some of Melbourne's most prestigious schools and universities nearby, thanks to WorkLab, YarraBend will transform the way people work (and learn) from home.
Raising the bar for wellbeing.
YarraBend is a place for healthy living and a dynamic lifestyle, with parks, cycle trails, 300 meters of direct Yarra river frontage, running tracks and a state of the art Health and Wellness Centre. Here residents have free access to a heated indoor swimming pool and a gym that is home to the most cutting edge equipment.
Relaxing and recharging here is easy with yoga, steam, sauna, massage rooms and more.
A celebration of creativity
True to the Glenvill philosophy of ‘never ordinary’, YarraBend will offer a new slant on urban design, and diverse architecture will be present – you won’t find a cookie cutter community here.
Creativity is celebrated on all its canvasses – with everything from art installations, sculptures, exhibitions and workshops here to awe and inspire you.
Changing the way we live
From our green rooftops, right down to Scandinavian-inspired roads which prioritise cyclists and pedestrians over motor vehicles – sustainability informed every step of YarraBend’s creation. Solar power, electric car-charge points and in-wall battery storage are just some of the ways we are setting a new standard for holistic urban living.
A destination for tastemakers
YarraBend is set to become a new food hub of Melbourne, with a culinary offering curated by one of the city’s best chefs, Scott Pickett. This spacious 2,000m² hospitality area features an al fresco dining area overlooking Artisan Park, perfect for those warm summer nights.
Some of Melbourne’s best restaurants and bars will make this area home alongside quirky cafes and gourmet grocers.
Next door to nature
Not only are there 21 parks within a 1km radius of YarraBend, the suburb will be home to 4 unique parks designed from the ground up. There’s so much to explore, including 300m of direct frontage to the Yarra River and easy access to the famed Yarra Trail. Whether you’re seeking adventure or downtime, at YarraBend, there’s something for everyone.
Entertain your imagination.
A three-storey building in the heart of the Artisan Precinct, The Hub will be an exclusive space for YarraBend residents and their lucky guests. Designed for entertaining, this building contains a fully stocked kitchen, expansive dining areas, a pool table, a poker room and an indoor cinema. On the rooftop terrace you’ll find a lounge, barbeque facilities and a fire pit.
