Creating connected communities with quality, affordable BTR housing

Home Southbank

Melbourne’s first purpose-built BTR development has fostered a community-oriented environment exclusively for renters and become a unique part of the fabric of Southbank.

The aspiration behind Home Southbank is to foster a positive, healthy, community-oriented environment within the building, while  affording residents greater security of tenure and more flexibility than a traditional lease.

Home Southbank features 405 thoughtfully appointed, luxury one, two and three-bedroom apartments in the heart of bustling Southbank. A focus on amenity provides residents with over 1500sqm of communal space and private on-site facilities, as well as curated events programs.

The building’s podium and exterior facade celebrates the industrial heritage and character of the precinct with the use of reclaimed brick, steel and floor to ceiling glazing inspired by the warehouses in the precinct. The slender and elegant 60-storey glass tower offers sweeping views of the city and is clearly defined against the Melbourne skyline.

With a commitment to modern Australian design, Home Southbank incorporates a palette of contemporary colour, material and texture to tie the apartments and shared spaces together as well as extend each living space beyond its walls. The use of Australian made furniture creates an atmosphere of relaxed and contemporary sophistication.

The many lifestyle-oriented spaces and unique experiences offered throughout Home Southbank have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of residents. The building’s sustainable systems and features reduce its overall environmental footprint, achieving a 5 star Green Star equivalent rating. A significant reduction in parking through the use of a car stacker will also minimise vehicle emissions.
