15 Thompson St.Kensington
Around the corner from our project at 393 Macaulay Rd, the next Assemble project is taking shape.
Since launching the Assemble Model last year, we have fallen in love with the village-like character and industrial heritage of Kensington and couldn’t think of a better place to build our next community.
15 Thompson St, Kensington will be more than just a building. Our vision is for a truly diverse, socially connected neighbourhood. A hub for residents and the wider Kensington community.
We have teamed-up with architecture practice, Hayball, to bring our vision to life. Hayball brings to this project a wealth of knowledge and experience in building communities. You can read more about our partnership here.

Located three kilometres north-west of Melbourne’s CBD, 15 Thompson St sits within the industrial heart of Kensington adjacent to the neighbourhood's Victorian worker cottages. It is surrounded by warehouses and factories that are now being restored and repurposed into a variety of residential, commercial and cultural uses, enhancing the precinct for the future while holding on to its heritage.
15 Thompson St is a short walk to both Macaulay and Kensington train stations. The Moonee Ponds Creek Trail is also adjacent to the site, providing a direct bicycle route to the CBD and linking to the Upfield Bike Path to the north-east (connecting through to Brunswick).
The site is situated within walking distance of JJ Holland Park to the south-west and Royal Park to the north-east. Other nearby amenities include the Clayton Reserve and the North Melbourne Recreation Centre and Pool. Most importantly, 15 Thompson St is just a stone’s throw from our favourite Mexican eatery in all of Melbourne – the one-and-only; La Tortilleria.
