Wharf's Entrance | Life on the Water


  • At our landmark Yarra’s Edge Precinct, Mirvac is both celebrating the area’s industrial past and catering to increasing numbers of Australians who are embracing flexible work arrangements with the design of its new homes

    This part of Melbourne first sprang to life in the 1850s when the network of wharves and rail infrastructure that defines the area was a hub of industrial activity, driven by the Gold Rush and Victoria’s expanding primary industry base.

    After container shipping became the standard in the early part of last century the area slowly fell into decline, before an energetic urban renewal project started transforming the precinct prior to the turn of the millennium.

    Now, the area is one of the most interesting parts of Melbourne. The jewel in the crown is Yarra’s Edge, where the absolute waterfront position makes healthy living an easy choice. Wide treelined pathways encourage residents to run, jog or stroll along the river and the indoor gym and pool are open no matter what the weather.

    At the waterfront gateway to the precinct is Wharf’s Entrance, incorporating Wharfside Residences, Cargo Homes, as well as the Forge Apartments. All beautifully appointed, with interiors selected for their elegance, style and state-of-the-art appliances throughout, these are some of the most sought-after addresses close to the city, and its newest absolute river frontages.

    Being health aware is not the only demographic trend catered for at Yarra’s Edge.

    Work lifestyles have also changed over the last decade, with an increasing number of people choosing to work from home for part or all of their working lives. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, one in 12 Australians now work from home, with this figure rising each year.

    Indeed, we live in the age of entrepreneurship and many of us prefer to own our own business. Those who are in this situation need to be able to define a space in their home for work and meetings, but also have easy access to the CBD when the need to go into town to meet with clients and colleagues is required.

    At its landmark Yarra’s Edge development in Melbourne, Mirvac has acknowledged this trend. The Home Offices were originally introduced in the sell-out award-winning River Precinct to outstanding success. As a result, when the brand new Wharf’s Entrance at Yarra’s Edge precinct was launched in September 2014, the Cargo Homes were released to the market, an evolution of the River Precinct Home Offices but with a distinct wharfside feel.

    Not only is the home office featured within the Cargo Homes a respectful nod to the nearby Dockland area’s heritage as a workers’ enclave and busy, working waterside area, they also actively accommodate the increasing number of people choosing more flexible working arrangements across Australia.

    It’s the genesis for the city’s newest start-up community and it’s possible in years to come Cargo Homes will be the place where Australia’s answer to Facebook, Netflix or Uber first started out.

    Cargo Homes are also within easy access to the Wharf Club. Here, members enjoy access to the state-of-the-art gym equipment, pool and fitness facility, harboured under an architectural, inclined grass roof that leads into Wharf’s Landing, the expansive waterfront park at the heart of the precinct.

    Due to the success of the Stage One release, expressions of interest are now being taken for the Stage Two release of the Cargo Homes and Wharfside Residences.
