 Luxury developer GURNER™ has confirmed the impending launch of its landmark new project, Victoria and Vine, that will transform an entire suburban block into a $280m luxury residential and retail precinct. 

Victoria and Vine will offer a significant focus on three, four and five bedroom residences with 34 penthouse sized residences ranging from $980,000 up to $7,500,000 for a luxury 350-400sqm offering. 

Bordered by Cambridge Street, Victoria Parade, Derby Street and Wellington Street, the project is arguably on one of the largest infill sites this close to the CBD with over 200m of street frontage, allowing the developer to do “something truly world class” said Tim Gurner. 

The project has been architecturally designed by Cox Architecture to deliver nine unique building forms that use juxtaposing materials and finishes to each offer their own individual identity, thus creating a vibrant street frontage that pays homage to the rich tapestry of warehouse-style, historic buildings for which New York’s Meatpacking district and Collingwood are both so well known. 

 “ The project was inspired by a recent trip to the Meatpacking district in New York where I fell in love with the raw materiality, steel frame windows and play on light and shadows that creates something truly unique,” said GURNER™ CEO, Tim Gurner. 

“ We refer to it a ‘building of buildings’ - from the street level it will feel like you are walking the length of an urban street in the Meatpacking district or Greenwich village, populated by several buildings of juxtaposing materials and architectural form – something never done before in Australia. 

“ We are testing the market demand for luxury three bedroom penthouses at prices that aren’t commonly seen in Collingwood however given the project’s location on the cusp of East Melbourne and the sheer dedication to the interiors, materiality and amenities, we believe the market is not only there, but ready for a luxury offering of this calibre and in this price bracket in Collingwood,” he said. 

The buildings have been carefully curated to ensure they do justice to the historical significance of Collingwood’s Foy and Gibson precinct, using reclaimed brickwork and industrial masonry elements such as metal-framed windows and floor-to-ceiling glass cavities and voids, applied differently across each of the nine smaller buildings. 

The 200m combined street frontage will be anchored by 11 retail tenancies at ground level, creating industrial-inspired spaces for world-class food and beverage operators to join Collingwood’s thriving hospitality scene.
