$235M CONTRACT FOR 700 APARTMENTS IN FOOTSCRAY
Sydney-based construction company Roberts Co won a $235 million contract for 700 build-to-rent apartments in Melbourne’s inner west in Footscray.
The project was originally tended as Probuild but subsequently has gone to Roberts Co.
The development will include:
- 702 apartments
- 275 carparking spaces
- A gymnasium
- Co-working space
- Private dining, lounge and games area
- A rooftop basketball court.
Roberts Co acquired much of Probuild’s liabilities when it took over the company’s five Melbourne projects, taking a sizeable chunk of the Victorian market.
At peak the site would employ about 300 people.
It is expected construction will begin in October 2022.
