According to Mirvac, Melbourne’s Yarra’s Edge precinct will be home to a new suburb of some 3000 residents where wellness and health have been incorporated into the building design from the outset.
Designed with a range of apartment configurations, the Wharf Club development will feature a pool, steam room, fitness centre and café underneath a 2000sqm public park, called ‘Wharf’s Landing’.
The focus on the wellbeing aspects of Yarra’s Edge draws inspiration from various bodies of research including that of marine biologist Wallace J. Nichols, who found that humans are hard-wired to respond positively to water as it calms and gives our brains a rest from overstimulation.
The Wharf Club is the latest part of Mirvac’s Wharf’s Entrance precinct, began construction in 2013 as part of the ongoing development of the Yarra’s Edge precinct.
Mirvac general manager of residential Victoria, Elysa Anderson said the Wharf Club and Wharf’s Landing park have been in the company’s planning for some time.
“At Mirvac, we began planning the Yarra’s Edge precinct close to 20 years ago with a vision to offer a tranquil lifestyle for our residents with access to the best of what Melbourne’s city has to offer within walking distance.”
“Today we have created a community of 3000 people who enjoy a unique living environment of an unparalleled waterfront location, combined with several amenities including a gallery, café and supermarket within walking distance,” she says.
The development has recently unveiled a number of other features including the $200 million Forge residential tower, Cargo Homes and the Wharfside waterfront homes. The precinct’s tallest tower Voyager has also been released.
The Yarra’s Edge precinct is due to be completed by 2024.
