Hamton reveal Trackside House

Hamton reveal Trackside House at $2 billion Moonee Valley Racecourse redevelopment

The $2 billion redevelopment of Moonee Valley Racecourse will transform the 40 hectare site into a botanic-inspired residential landmark, and the new premium neighbourhood of Melbourne’s inner north.

The team behind Melbourne’s $2 billion transformation of the Moonee Valley Racecourse has unveiled the project’s most anticipated residential release to date; Trackside House – the first residential offering in Moonee Valley Park to boast track frontage, and the only one with uninterrupted views of the racetrack’s future finishing straight.

Trackside House will feature 205 residences including some high-end apartment stock, which come with a twist. The project will include three and four-bedroom penthouse product on each level, as opposed to stacking all of the penthouses on the top level. The clever design will accomodate those who want the larger apartment while also being closer to the track.

Joint venture partners, developer Hamton and superannuation fund Hostplus, who are working in partnership with Moonee Valley Racing Club, had renowned architecture firm Rothelowman collaborate with interiors house Carr on the designs.

Prices at Trackside House will start from $470,000 for the one-bedroom apartments, and range in price through the two, three and four-bedroom offerings to over $5 million.

The unobstructed views across the racecourse, which extend across Ascot Vale and Brunswick to the Melbourne city skyline, will offer residents unparalleled vision of iconic race days like the Cox Plate alongside the future infield of the track – which will be transformed into a lush, green landscape of walking tracks, parklands and integrated community amenities.

Trackside House will be the fourth stage released within Moonee Valley Park. Its designs by Rothelowman maintains the precinct’s strong connection to nature and biophilic design, fostering a unique urban sanctuary surrounded by greenery – just only six kilometres.

Inspired by the composure and calm of a refined hotel, the Trackside House lobby will welcome residents with a tree-lined landscape that leads to a private drop off area and concierge – complete with a number of services that can be booked via smartphone on the Residents’ App.

Trackside House will also be serviced by a number of exclusive resident amenities including a rooftop pool, residents’ lounge, business lounge and state of the art Wellness Sanctuary – equipped with glass-walled yoga room, meditation space and sauna and fully equipped gym.

Hamton Property Group Executive Chairman Paul Hameister said Trackside House’s uninterrupted views of both the Moonee Valley Racecourse and the city set it apart, adding to the project’s botanical design, community amenities and 20ha of green open space and parklands.

“Residents at Trackside House will be able to soak up the fun atmosphere of Moonee Valley Racing Club’s race days, events and activities, in person or from the privacy of their balcony or the rooftop entertaining areas, while enjoying uninterrupted views of the city skyline," Hameister said.

“Trackside House is the first racetrack-fronting stage within Moonee Valley Park – we have a large database of buyers who have been waiting for a track-fronting apartment, so we are excited to be bringing these unique homes to market.

“We are once again, offering purchasers of our Penthouse apartments the opportunity to collaborate with Rothelowman and Carr to design a customised home tailored personally to their needs and believe this will resonate strongly with the local owner occupier market."

Rothelowan Principal Chris Hayton says the opportunity for purchasers to customise their future home is reflective of the Moonee Valley Park design ethos, which brings together unique residences and premium amenities that complement its natural surrounds, location and landscape.

“We are thrilled at the prospect of being able to work with future residents of Trackside House to tune the building and apartments to perfectly match their lifestyles," Hayton says.

"The underlying design philosophy for the building has always been to deliver a living experience of enviable generosity by leveraging its truly unique setting. Collaborating with residents of the building further amplifies the opportunities to provide one-of-a-kind residences."

The $2 billion redevelopment of Moonee Valley Racecourse will transform the 40 hectare site into a botanic-inspired residential landmark, and the new premium neighbourhood of Melbourne’s inner north.

Once complete, Moonee Valley Park – which is designed to be a neighbourhood within a park – will encompass around 2,000 dwellings across eight village-style precincts, complete with resident amenities, retailers, cafes, restaurants, playgrounds, sporting fields, running and walking tracks, set among 20 hectares of abundant green open space.

Moonee Valley Park launched to the market in August 2019, and has since delivered its first completed stage – as well as amenities including Tote Park and TOTE Bar & Dining – with the first residents moving into their new homes in 2022. Two further stages are under construction with completion in 2023.
