The Age – Vic Urban: The Nicholson

COMING to a suburb near you – lots more apartments – straight out of the factory.

New apartments are literally rolling off the production line at a Brooklyn factory as part of the state government’s plans to house an additional 1800 Melbourne residents a week.

A new ”modular” apartment building in East Coburg could be the future of housing for many in Melbourne.

The 199-apartment ”Nicholson” development may be the first of many modular apartment developments by government development agency VicUrban – now focused on providing a rapid expansion of new housing in Melbourne’s existing suburbs close to transport, jobs and services.
