Southbank Pioneer Celebrates a Milestone


INTRO: Central Equity marks two decades of development that have transformed a suburb

This year, pioneering property developer Central Equity is celebrating 20 years of development in Southbank. In those two decades, the area has grown from a semi-industrial suburb with very few people living there, into a bustling residential hub and Central Equity has played a major role in that transformation.

Central Equity was the first major developer in the 3006 postcode and commenced building there in 1991. The low-rise Southbank Gardens project comprised 68 apartments and at the time, only 84 people were listed as living in Southbank. Today, the suburb houses approximately 13,000 residents and Central Equity has developed over 60 per cent of apartments in which they live.

Their latest project, EPIC Southbank Apartments will be a landmark on the Southbank skyline, providing 38 levels of stylish and sustainable living in a premium Southbank location. A range of one, two and three bedroom designs will feature floor to ceiling windows in the living rooms and most bedrooms. Many apartments have study areas and all have a balcony or outdoor terrace ideal for entertaining.

Southbank offers unmatched lifestyle potential with easy access to the Arts Precinct, Crown Towers, the Botanical Gardens, and picturesque Southbank Promenade. Its also close major shopping at South wharf with its DFO and the CBD is a short walk across the Yarra River. There is a myriad of cafes, bistros and restaurants to choose from and nearby South Melbourne offers character and style, with nightspots, restaurants, cafes and boutiques and the hustle and bustle of South Melbourne Market.

Southbank is also distinguished by its infrastructure and amenities, including transport and access to schools and tertiary institutions and health and medical facilities.

The transformation of Southbank into a vibrant residential precinct has contributed a great deal to Melbourne’s cosmopolitan atmosphere and its reputation for livability and style. Central Equity is proud of its significant role in the area’s renewal and looks forward to the next 20 years as Southbank continues to blossom.
