ALT APARTMENTS, TRAVANCORE
Bensons Property Group has been focused for over 18 years in delivering solid investment properties & homes in great locations mainly city fringe with good steady capital growth. The buildings are well designed & well built.
Travancore is the gateway to the Northern suburbs as and is only 2.5km to the CBD. It is also very near to the Melbourne Uni Parkville campus, the Royal Melbourne Hospital, etc. This little suburb that everyone has overlooked until recently is tipped to be Melbourne’s hot spot in 2011 by the RP Data’s May 2011 report.
- Surrounded by parklands
- Tram stop immediately adjacent
- 3 mins walk to the Flemington Bridge train station
- 3 mins drive to City Link freeway
- 5 mins drive to Melbourne Uni
- 10 mins walk to the famous Laksa King!
Due to the proximity to its surrounding, Stage 1 & 2 has attracted a good mix of students [30%] and young working professionals [70%] with doctors/nurses, CBD workers plus pilots/flight attendants with easy access to the airports. Further the tram stop at the front of the building is to be upgraded into a new tram ‘super stop’ with other access improvements in early 2012.
