88 Leveson Development to Have Rooftop Decks for All 15 Homes

News & Insights
A new North Melbourne project will have future residents dancing on the ceiling at a former badge factory.

The 88 Leveson development will feature rooftop decks on all 15 of its planned townhouses.

After launching last weekend, there have been more than 150 inquiries – at least 10 per home – for the mix of three and four-storey residences.

Cedar Woods chief operating officer Patrick Archer said the rooftops had been popular with the prospective buyers who had been in touch so far.

They will typically span 48sq m, with enough room for a barbecue as well as outdoor dining and entertaining settings.

“People really like the extensive rooftop, and knowing that when you sit out on it, you can see all the historic buildings in North Melbourne and the CBD skyline,” Mr Archer said.

Genton architects designed the homes with luxury in mind. But they have also retained the industrial heritage facade of the former Patrick’s badge factory operated at the site.

With four-bedroom homes to stand four storeys tall with about 210sq m floorplans, and three-bedroom layouts to have three storeys, not including their rooftop decks, the homes are also substantive compared with a similarly priced house in the suburb.

Interior design has been overseen by Adele Bates, who has paired Signorino stone with designer pendant lighting from Studio Italia, Embelton engineered timber floors and Miele appliances.

There is an option in some to include a lift, and homes feature either a single or a tandem car park.

The project is walking distance to health and legal precincts around the city, as well as the Queen Victoria Market. It was also zoned for University High School, which had attracted a number of younger professionals, Mr Archer said.

Downsizers and middle-aged couples have also inquired about the homes.

Construction is slated to start in the middle of next year, with the project expected to be completed within 20 months.
