They chose Live City because of its ideal location in the heart of it all, its close proximity to the CBD, and because they loved the layout of their brand new home.

The pair have taken a 12-month lease on their two-bedroom, third-floor apartment while they find their bearings in Melbourne.

“We love the location – Footscray is such a vibrant, multicultural area and there are multiple public transport options just outside the apartment block,’’ Ms Atkinson said.

“Due to the rapid gentrification of Footscray, there are now lots of cafes and bars here, as well as very good shopping.  

“The tram and a bus stop at the door take you to Footscray train station, which is just a short walk away.

“We also love the layout of this apartment.

“We both like to cook and this is perfect for that. It has a big kitchen with an island bench and plenty of work space.

“We also enjoy the 180-degree views of the city skyline we get here.

“There are excellent communal facilities at Live City, such as the Skydeck and outdoor green space, along with convenient touches such as the garbage chutes on each floor.’’

Relocating to Melbourne for work, the couple researched their accommodation options extensively before they left.

“I did plenty of online research. We have also been visiting Melbourne every year for the past 26 years, so we had a good idea of what was available,’’ Ms Atkinson said.

The location allows them both to get to work quickly and represents value for money considering the high level of amenity at the doorstep.
