All apartments allocated to the Key Worker Program have now been committed. However, if you're interested in the project we may have other apartments at market rate available, so please reach out to Lizzie via email.
We can all agree that COVID has highlighted the vital role that key workers play in our society. We collaborated with the City of Melbourne in 2021 to design a Key Worker Program, where seven reserved apartments at 393 Macaulay Road, Kensington were offered with a 20% rental concession.
As part of Assemble Futures, the eligible key workers receive a 20% rent concession for the total lease period (five years), and the option to purchase the property at an agreed price at the end of the lease period. Please note, the concession applies to the rental amount only; not the purchase price.
Assemble Futures allows you to rent your home for five years while you save to buy it, treating it as your own from the day you move in. The rental fees and future purchase price are agreed upfront, so you have a fixed goal to save towards. If life takes you elsewhere and you decide not to purchase, you can hand back the keys and have your bond released as per the standard RTBA process.
You will be supported throughout your lease period with free financial coaching and bulk buying discounts on many everyday items, such as coffee, toilet paper, car rental and toiletries.
393 Macaulay Rd is our first project to be delivered via Assemble Futures. Located just three kilometres north-west of Melbourne’s CBD in Kensington, 393 Macaulay Road was designed by Fieldwork, and comprises of 73 apartments. This project is currently under construction with resident due to move in mid-late 2021.
At the heart of our design is a landscaped, open-air walkway that will bring cross-flow ventilation and dual aspect natural light to our residents’ homes. The entire community will be connected through communal spaces on the upper and ground floors: places for work, eating and leisure. You can read more about the project in the brochure.
