Award-winning developer Central Equity will be celebrating the grand opening of their brand new Southbank Place Apartments with a weekend of festivities this July 2-3.

Located at 60 Kavanagh St, the stunning new development has been designed in collaboration with renowned architects Guilford Bell and Graham Fisher.

An array of excellent resident facilities complements the modern apartment tower, including more than 1400 square metres of communal facilities, which are located in three separate areas throughout the building to ensure ample access to amenities for residents.

Meld Magazine was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit media outlet in September 2008 to reach out to international students in Melbourne, and provide students the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Many international students live in or around the city because of the proximity to their colleges and universities, and that was where we decided to focus our efforts first. Many of us live, work and study locally too. Our editorial team is made of both local and international students, and it has worked to our advantage in providing local content in every sense of the word.
