The Urban Developer Industry Excellence Awards 2023 - Development of the Year High-Density Residential (Finalist)

Comprising 400 apartments, Cowper Residences occupies a central site in Footscray, straddling a major train station, market, shopping precinct and arts hub. We embraced local character and scale to enhance liveability, workability and walkability with a mix of residential precincts linked by landscaped gardens, lanes, commercial tenancies and communal space.

Successful urban infill projects embrace and enhance existing neighbourhoods. In Footscray, land reuse and densification is already well underway. Cowper Residences shows how urban infill really can bring a range of advantages to existing suburbs when we pursue dual benefits for developers and the community.
