The YarraBend development is an architecturally striking addition to Melbourne’s north-east. Projected to be the world’s most liveable suburb by 2025, YarraBend is a premier, mixed-use site with world-class amenities.
Developer Glenvill is enlisting a number of future-thinking architects including DKO Architecture, Techné and Rothelowman in order to construct a high-tech, master-planned community featuring modern residential apartments, townhouses, and house and land packages.
Occupying 14.5 hectares, YarraBend is made up of five precincts with 21 parks within a 1km radius. Each residence is carefully crafted to serve as a modern retreat, surrounded by amenities purpose-built to encourage valuable interaction between neighbours and the environment.
The Hub, designed by Techné, is a resident-exclusive recreation building where form meets function. Natural accents and raw, exposed concrete combine to create a modern facade and inspiring interiors. The ground floor features welcoming spaces with chef-inspired kitchens and bookable dining areas while upstairs an open-plan coworking space is split into designated workstations. High-tech gadgetry and a private meeting room is provided for freelancers, small business owners and professionals working away from the office or home.
Residents can take a break in The Hub’s communal lounge or head up to the top level which includes a cinema, and a rooftop terrace with sweeping panoramic views. Inviting and warm, these spaces are perfect for a movie with friends or time-out with a favourite novel.
Glenvill has formed YarraBend on the mantra: build well to live well. The Health and Wellness Centre showcases futuristic technology to assist residents in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The state-of-the-art gym facilities include premium personal trainers, a yoga room, and a steam room. SmartSpot mirrors provide real-time corrections while data-capture via the Technogym app can track and optimise the user’s evolving workouts.
YarraBend residences exist in a suburb with high-speed internet access. The focus on technology continues with the YarraBend app — exclusive to YarraBend residents, it provides streamlined information on public transport timetables and which equipment is free in the gym. Owners can organise car-sharing and even order food from this one application, making life at YarraBend effortlessly integrated.
