Rathdowne in Wollert combines all the features for which Villawood is renowned for but takes it even further through the inclusion of a future Shopping Precinct with retail as well as a commercial element.
Rathdowne takes its name from the iconic Rathdowne Street on the fringe of Melbourne’s CBD, evoking a cosmopolitan energy to the bourgeoning suburb of Wollert.
Rathdowne is becoming a vibrant community with unique and interesting streetscapes and diverse housing options. With its future landmark Shopping Precinct, exclusive Residents’ Club and distinctive landscape of waterways and green spaces, Rathdowne is set to be a premier destination like nowhere else.
Located in Wollert and only minutes away from the established suburbs of Craigieburn and Epping, Rathdowne will be an extraordinary home to a new kind of community.
Fronting Craigieburn Road East, with easy access to the Hume Freeway, Melbourne’s CBD is only 30km’s away. Go a little further to Craigieburn Train Station and the CBD is a relaxed 38 minutes away by train. More large-scale transport projects are planned for this area too, including a future Wollert Train Station.
Rathdowne’s vibrant heart will be a proposed Shopping Precinct with landmark buildings created by one of Melbourne’s leading urban architectural practices. The centre will comprise 5000m2 of retail floor space, including specialty retail, cafes, and a supermarket, and is well positioned within the community with bike and pedestrian paths connecting the entire neighbourhood.
