a ‘big backyard’ lifestyle in the heart of Melbourne
Build Australia - 22/10/2018
Balfe Park Lane, a brand new sustainable multi-residential development in Brunswick East, is set to offer future residents a chance at an elusive ‘big backyard’ lifestyle in the heart of the city.
The development offers medium-density living across four interconnected buildings between Nicholson Street and Balfe Park. The development will feature an internal laneway linking Nicholson Street to the park, which was previously only accessible from the rear streets of Brunswick.

In Melbourne’s inner East Brunswick, boutique developer Antipodean Land Developments plans to build a medium density housing cluster between Nicholson Street and the existing Balfe Park.
Straddling four interconnected buildings, Balfe Park Lane will incorporate 1.2 hectares of park space and the “voluntary inclusion” of a lane to enable public access.
Balfe Park Lane adds to KTA’s growing housing portfolio
Urban Melbourne - 18/10/2018
Boutique developer Antipodean Land Developments is pushing ahead with its Balfe Park Lane project in Brunswick East. First covered on Urban.com.au in late June, Balfe Park Lane comprises an ensemble of four interconnected apartment buildings designed by Kerstin Thompson Architects (KTA), located between Nicholson Street and Balfe Park.
KTA has designed Balfe Park Lane to provide a unique offering which promotes design excellence, high quality resident amenity and sustainable living. Capitalising on its 60m park frontage and three acres of adjacent public open space, the Balfe Park Lane provides the Aussie Dream of a big backyard but with an inner-city twist. Balfe Park Lane features nine townhouses and a mix of two, three and four bedroom apartments with dual aspects and allowing for natural cross-flow ventilation and an abundance of natural light.
