Cedar Woods Breaks Ground at 88 Leveson

Cedar Woods has celebrated groundbreaking at its luxury North Melbourne townhome development, 88 Leveson. 

Continuing its long-standing relationship with Cedar Woods, Melbourne builder Burbank Urban has been appointed to deliver the project, adding to the portfolio of projects delivered for Cedar Woods in Victoria.  

Leveraging decades of experience in residential construction, Cedar Woods’ Victorian Development Director James Bovell says that Burbank Urban are ideally placed to deliver 88 Leveson:

“Burbank Urban is a proven performer in the residential sector, having delivered a number of innovative projects across their portfolio. Their consistent delivery of quality products provides purchasers confidence in the offering that 88 Leveson presents,” Mr Bovell said. 

88 Leveson answers demand for owner-occupiers increasingly looking for culturally-rich, amenity-driven, locations moments from Melbourne’s CBD. North Melbourne is fast becoming one of Melbourne’s most sought-after locations for homebuyers, with 165 units in the area sold this year, according to Domain’s suburb profile. 

“It’s an exciting time to be building in North Melbourne,” Mr Bovell said. “The area is going through transformation, yet still retains the rich character and history of its industrial past. Leveson appeals to a broad range of homebuyers, who see value in the project and area to suit their unique lifestyles and circumstances.”

This sentiment is true for Marshall White Director Mark Dayman, who is receiving diverse homebuyer interest for 88 Leveson; with current purchasers including downsizers, families with older children and young couples.

"88 Leveson was launched to a very receptive audience. The location enjoys proximity to Melbourne's CBD as well as its adjacency to an array of boutique restaurants and shops in the heart of what is fast becoming one of the city's trendiest suburbs,” Mr Dayman said. 

"North Melbourne showcases iconic heritage elements unique to the identity of Melbourne, and this is something that purchasers love about the location. The larger and higher-priced residences in 88 Leveson have been the first to sell which is a rare feat for luxury off-the-plan developments."

Downsizer purchasers Ann and Wayne were initially attracted to the convenience, meticulous design, and location of 88 Leveson and were looking to move from their current home in Camberwell to a more fresh, upcoming cultural hotspot closer to the CBD. 

“We love the look of the building, its materials and design. The size of the development, its proximity to the CBD, local parklands and transport made it ideal for our next move.”

“This was less a downsizing decision and more of one about lifestyle and location – from a very quiet suburban setting to more active engagement within the community. 88 Leveson, with its design, floorplans and roof terrace gave us all the things we were looking for in a new home.”

Once complete, 88 Leveson will encompass 15 architecturally designed three and four-bedroom townhomes designed by Genton Architecture, each with individual carparking and a private rooftop terrace in what is slated to be a bespoke, modern-industrial style offering that pays homage to the site’s previous identity as the Patrick’s badge works. 

Located in the heart of North Melbourne, 88 Leveson is located two kilometres from the Melbourne CBD and within walking distance to universities, hospitals and the Queen Victoria Market.

The official ground breaking was celebrated on Thursday 3 November, with Cedar Woods’ Victorian Development Director James Bovell and Burbank Urban’s National General Manager Michael Battistella in attendance.
