Anchoring Fitzroy’s Gore and Johnson Streets, developer Pace Development Group’s transformative project Fabbrica brings a curated collection of apartments and townhouses to the oh-so-cool inner-city locale.

The group’s vision to disrupt traditional apartment living and, thus, reinvent Fitzroy living, is expressed in design personalisation – where buyers are given the opportunity to choose from two very different interior design styles: Winwood Mckenzie’s sleek and minimalist aesthetic complemented by stainless steel and marble accents or a dramatic and opulent design where unexpected bursts of granite meet textural timber by Bergman & Co.

Evidently, Fabbrica has innovation at its core. Buyers can truly realise their dream homes through a menu of customisation upgrades, including an integrated electric BBQ unit, Fabbrica’s custom Divan, clever storage solutions, and fold-down beds.

The project’s design innovation continues onto the rooftop, where the best of New York City is reinvented for Fitzroy. One half is a relaxing space that opens onto an expansive lawn area with a meandering timber pathway and ample seating. The other half encourages community, where a casual lounge, dining area, and private dining room overlooking the CBD make the perfect places to host special events and intimate dinners. Those working from home can take advantage of Fabbrica’s tranquil work-from-home space complete with a private working pod.

Located on a corner address, Fabbrica perfectly blends Fitzroy’s old and new. Johnston Street’s contemporary stacked form featuring distinct balconies melds Gore Street’s restored heritage entrance with an open-air industrial-style staircase and bridge. With board-marked concrete and green tiling that pay homage to the area’s old corner pubs and cobbled pavers referencing the site’s industrial history, Fitzroy’s eclectic character comes alive in Fabbrica’s distinct architecture.

Additionally, Fabbrica's innovative net zero carbon design grants it a coveted 7-Star NatHERS rating. Boasting style and sustainability, there’s nothing quite like this inner-city address.
