The Parkside Flemington Landing development will have a view you can bet you’ll enjoy.
A TRIFECTA of apartment design, location and affordable prices opposite Flemington Racecourse is lining up in the barriers to launch in the coming weeks.
Parkside Flemington Landing is named in a nod to racegoers who travelled to Flemington by boat and landed nearby in Melbourne’s early days.
But the 2B Ballarat Rd, Footscray development also has a view across the Maribyrnong River to the 1600m start mark at Flemington Racecourse.

Montalto Properties director Toby Osborne said he was backing the prime spot as a sure bet with punters looking for a new place to stable themselves.
“It will be an exclusive address and the envy of friends and family when they come to visit,” Mr Osbourne said.
There have already been conversations with the racing industry, with trainers, jockeys and others having spoken to him about the project.
The development’s location right on Footscray Park’s doorstep would also appeal to a range of buyers, including first-home buyers looking for an active lifestyle, with regular exercise groups operating from the park.
The development will feature bright living spaces with plenty of glass to invite natural light inside.
“We are the only residential development on Footscray Park,” Mr Osborne said.
“And there’s a bike track that takes you all the way into town next to the Yarra River.”
A total of 23 apartments will feature one- to three-bedroom floorplans.
MA Architecture’s Karen Alcock designed the development with a view to making the most of the open vistas surrounding the site, be it leafy river views to the north or Melbourne’s CBD to the south.
The modernist facade will be highlighted with extensive glazing, as well as concrete and cement elements to provide a sense of solidity to its aesthetics.
“There’s a lot of glass to all the bedrooms, living and kitchen spaces as a priority,” Mr Osborne said.
“We are making sure there’s a lot of natural light throughout the apartments.”
Inside, layouts centre on the entertainment spaces flanked by a kitchen and balcony.
Expansive island benches will face the view, while European appliances, timber floors and Terrazzo stone used across benchtops and splashbacks provide for eye-catching features inside.
Meanwhile, functionality is catered to with storage throughout.
Buyers are expected to be able to take advantage of the track views for the 2020 Melbourne Cup.
One-bedroom apartments will start from $395,000-$415,000.
Two bedrooms from $630,000-$775,000. Three from $930,000-$1,020,000.
The display suite will be opened for a preview on Melbourne Cup Day.
