The Marker takes a significant step forward in the evolution of West Melbourne. A statement of quality, liveability and scale, to shape the urban fabric of an historic neighbourhood. The first edition, Stanley & Spencer, is perfectly positioned to take advantage of a landmark location with design that exemplifies a more advanced approach to modern living.
On the edge of the city and bordering a tranquil, tree-lined neighbourhood, the precinct is transforming into a leafy residential borough, with its industrial heritage reimagined for a growing community of urban dwellers. Surrounded by a privilege of Melbourne’s favourite parks and gardens, the area exudes an unmistakable village vibe. Connectivity is immediate with a tram stop at your door to transport you into the heart of the city, North Melbourne and the Docklands in mere minutes.
Stanley and Spencer will be the face of a new West Melbourne, a socially diverse and culturally inclusive neighbourhood that naturally extends the limits of the CBD. The prized precinct has become the focus of The West Melbourne Structure Plan that will sustainably grow the area to its full potential, developing leafy, pedestrianized streetscapes alongside residential neighbourhoods, retail and social hubs for a growing community.
UNIT 12.43% AVERAGE ANNUAL GROWTH 2.86%
New local retail villages will provide a range of shops, cafés and services to meet the everyday needs of a diverse and inclusive community.
The urban renewal of West Melbourne is evidence of the expansion of Australia’s fastest growing city which is predicted to be home to 8 million by 2051.
Nearby is Australia’s highest ranked University The University of Melbourne as well as other top rating institutions such as RMIT, La Trobe and Victoria University.
Established employment precincts include the Hoddle Grid, CBD, Parkville’s medical and research centres and the Docklands.
The area’s young population is highly educated with 22% achieving a Bachelor Degree or above, and close to 30% employed as professionals or managers.
Several large-scale government funded infrastructure projects will support connectivity and growth in the area; the Metro Rail project creating the new West Melbourne station (currently North Melbourne); The West Gate Tunnel connecting into West Melbourne via the Dynon Road Bridge and CityLink; Queen Victoria Market renewal delivering a world-class market precinct.
Green extension olans for West Melbourne include increased cooling, tree canopies and street greening where asphalt surfaces will be transformed for leisure, parks and recreation. Large sections of public open space and water-saving landscape design treatments.

At the heart of Stanley & Spencer, a refined collective of social spaces come together to create a luxurious inner sanctum. From central residents' gardens to the intimate club lounge and places for an impressive dinner party, each zone has been carefully designed to encourage connection and celebrate life.
Spear-headed by an international interior design studio and inspired by the unique architectural façade that envelopes the development, the interiors exemplify the essence of soft form, textural layering and light play. Across a diverse range of studio, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom configurations, flowing layouts combine worldly comforts with a lavish approach to materiality and detail.
