127 – 149 Nicholson St, East Brunswick
Construction has commenced on the most thoughtfully crafted apartments in Melbourne, in a thriving modern community where sustainable development, urban living and home comfort take precedence.
Located only 6 kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD, East Brunswick Village is bringing the best of apartment living to the city’s vibrant inner north.
East Brunswick Village (EBV) is a unique urban renewal project transforming the former Sidney Cooke Fasteners site in East Brunswick into an exciting, community-focused space for twenty-first century living.
From the 1840s on, East Brunswick was vital to Melbourne’s growth. Its quarries supplied materials to local brickworks, which in turn supplied bricks to many of the city’s houses, public buildings and landmarks. Rope works, foundries, pottery works and piano makers thrived in East Brunswick – as did a nail manufacturer, Sidney Cooke Fasteners.
East Brunswick’s distinctive urban charm and location promise a lifestyle rich in culture, food and design. Immerse yourself in a neighbourhood filled with music venues, cafes, bars and restaurants, public art and design spaces, theatres, galleries and natural beauty, all less than 6 kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD.
Community is not defined by bricks and mortar but by shared experiences
EBV is a home with heart. Its contemporary one, two and three bedroom apartments in 5-6 level buildings are complemented by tree-lined laneways, simple and robust urban street paving palettes, and a distinctive sense of community, time and place through public art.
A group of Melbourne’s most talented professionals, designers, builders and creatives are helping to realise the vision behind the EBV project.
“We wanted to create a village that encompasses all the benefits of living in a real community. At EBV people will be able to work, shop, and socialise…they’ll be able to access everything they could want, or need.”
“I think of EBV as a microcosm of East Brunswick. It’s exciting, it’s creative, it’s diverse, and East Brunswick is like that too – it’s one of Melbourne’s most inspiring and livable suburbs. It’s got great public transport, it’s got great amenities, it’s got great restaurants. And it’s so close to the city; as a place to live, East Brunswick has become incredibly popular over the past decade. We know people want to live here. With EBV, one of our aims is to make living in this part of Melbourne affordable for people. Making living as affordable and enjoyable as possible, that’s what it’s all about.”
