The landmark Nylex Clock site offered Caydon the opportunity to transform a former industrial site into an important and exciting cultural asset.
To be known as The Malt District in reference to its recent history as a malting factory, this ambitious project is destined to become a major Melbourne destination. As well as highly desirable apartments, generously designed public spaces will be ringed with restaurants and cafes bringing life to the precinct from morning through to late evening.
The Malt District is situated in a small pocket of Richmond which is already home to a new generation of energetic people transforming period homes and old warehouses into smart, contemporary offices and living spaces. This new development will be the major drawcard for those who want to inhabit and visit an area that is a magnet for artists, artisans and creative minds.
It will be an exhilarating place to live and visit, whether from the next neighbourhood or the other side of the world.
Designed by famous architects, Fender Katsalidis, also renowned for the design of MONA in Hobart, Coppins Corner is set to become one of the Malt District’s most striking buildings. A sophisticated mix of 1, 2 & 3 bedroom apartments will feature distinctive balconies, directed towards views that won’t be built out or encroached upon. There will be a vital energy at street level in Coppins Corner thanks to the buzz created by the retail outlets, including a café and supermarket, located there.
The textures and colours used in the common areas will reflect the heritage precinct, the rough and smooth in green leather and timber, the golds of the malt, the white in the stone.
Caydon has created a new level of shared space that is exclusive, restful and refined. The astonishing views across the city make the rooftop space a remarkable place to entertain or simply relax and unwind. An undercover dining area with its own kitchen can be rendered completely private with the use of strategically placed screens. A gymnasium and health spa will also be available for the exclusive use of residents Coppins Corner is the first exciting release in the Malt District and interest in the apartments is already sky high. The Malt District is destined to become a major attraction and destination in Melbourne. Many of the world’s major cities have evolved their abandoned industrialised areas into vibrant, creative and compelling districts. Now we have our own.
