LOCATION – 151 FRANKLIN STREET, MELBOURNE
Melbourne is renowned for its colourful laneway culture. Criss-crossing the original Hoddle Grid, over 200 laneways brim with stylish restaurants, quirky bars, designer boutiques, street art and much more. Some laneways remain hidden to all but the most determined seekers. Others have become famous destinations in themselves. Now, Fulton Lane adds to Melbourne’s laneway culture. Linking A’Beckett and Franklin St, Fulton Lane is the city’s newest laneway – and your first step in an endless journey through Melbourne’s secret pathways. Your very own laneway will become a hub for serious foodies thanks to its proximity to the Queen Victoria Market. These markets, beloved by all Melbournians, are your corner store – where you’ll find the largest range of fresh produce and gourmet delights you could ever imagine.
LIFESTYLE – THE FULTON LIFE | MARKET.CITY.HOME
Location is the key to Fulton Lane living. More than 200 laneways contribute to Melbourne’s cosmopolitan personality, encompassing theatre, music, food, wine, sport and art. This is the complete city lifestyle, one where the benefits of a Manhattan type way of life – cocktails after work, gallery openings, excellent shopping and access to business centres – is uniquely balanced with the fresh food culture and community vibe of the Queen Victoria Market and the outdoors lifestyle of Melbourne’s famous parks.
HISTORY – AN ADDRESS YOU CAN TALK ABOUT
Until 1917, Fulton Street, named after an influential magistrate and Melbourne City Councillor Thomas Fulton, bordered the Queen Victoria Market which had been established in the 1850s. As the Market’s popularity and footprint grew, Fulton Street was lost. Now, almost a century later the Fulton Lane development returns this proud name to prominence, celebrating the history and profile of this unique location. With tantalising proximity to the Queen Victoria Market, the northern end of Melbourne’s CBD is a food lovers dream destination, while also offering one of the city’s most vibrant and exciting neighbourhoods in which to live.
