The Olympic Village was superbly laid out with a high priority being access to open space for training and to the city – enduring elements that continue to attract eager home buyers. Heidelberg West’s stocks are on the rise courtesy of its affordability, vibrant community spirit, family-focused playgrounds such as Malahang Reserve, local schools and proximity to La Trobe University and Northland Shopping Centre.
