The Darley Sets a New Pace for Flemington Racecourse

With its rare and prized position overlooking the Flemington Racecourse, our new development, The Darley, is destined to become an iconic architectural landmark for Melbourne.

The Darley reflects Pace’s longstanding love for this vibrant city and our holistic approach to design and craftsmanship.

As the first residential development on Flemington Racecourse in its 182-year history, we were heavily inspired by the site’s historical significance. It was also important to us that the design met leading standards in environmental sustainability, culminating in a contemporary sanctuary that provides a new way of living.

“The Darley will stand proud within Melbourne’s iconic Flemington Racecourse,” Ashley Bramich, Sales & Marketing Director of Pace, says.

"The unique design honours the site’s heritage while contributing to a better, more sustainable future; and its five-star building amenity is second to none."

To bring this vision to life, we’ve partnered with renowned experts in their field, with architecture by ARM, landscape architecture by TCL, and interior design by Carr. The Darley’s architecture will be instantly recognisable with its distinctive horseshoe shape offering sweeping vistas across verdant gardens and the city skyline, and a robust, contemporary exterior that is softened with enveloping greenery. Behind this bold façade lies a world of lightness and finesse inspired by the fashions and revelry of its unique setting, featuring a timeless nature-inspired palette.

Behind the aesthetics, we are proudly targeting a 5 Star ‘Design and As-Built’ rating with Australia’s leading sustainability rating system for buildings, Green Star; meaning that both the design and the finished construction must deliver on its sustainability goals. Amongst many sustainable initiatives, the building will be created using select materials sourced from responsible manufacturers recognised for their sustainable methods.

What we think residents will love most, however, is the outstanding amenity more commonly found in the world’s leading hotels. A concierge service offers five-star convenience and level 7’s The Terrace is a light-filled sanctuary, comprising a pool, outdoor/indoor dining facilities and a library, along with mesmerising views of the Melbourne skyline.

Other conveniences include an expansive gymnasium with TechnoGym equipment, a dedicated co-working space and a subterranean wine cellar and bar. In an ode to Melbourne’s coffee culture, The Darley will have its very own cafe with a menu designed by the acclaimed chef and restaurateur Scott Pickett.

Suburb on the rise: Flemington Flanked by the Maribyrnong River and a tributary of the mighty Yarra, Flemington is known for far more than being the home of that racecourse. Just a stone’s throw away from the CBD, this is a suburb on the rise due to an influx of newcomers who are embracing the neighbourhood’s city-side locality and multi-faceted character.
