The Place

Our Heritage listed retro-fitted Hero Apartment Building houses 149, architect designed apartments on 14 floors with 2 entrances and 2 levels of resident car parking. The street level and basement host cafés and restaurants with retail shops and services as neighbours. In the carpark a worm farm flourishes with a caring community feeding them and reducing our waste to landfill. On the roof are solar panels. On the front wall there is art.

The People

The Hero community is diverse and vibrant. Any day you will find all sorts of people with all sorts of backgrounds from all sorts of places. Long-time apartment owners mingle with committed residents, visitors, tradespeople, generations of families, professionals, retirees, students, business owners, sports lovers, artists and musicians. You might come across specialists looking after common property, others delivering goods and services. 


The Owners Corporation Committee works closely with the Owners Corporation Manager and Building Manager to oversee the strategy and plans for maintaining and improving our Building with the wellbeing of our community always in mind.

Acknowledging Traditional Owners

An important part of recognising our past is acknowledging the Traditional Owners of the land where Hero stands. A plaque is on the wall near the Russell Street entrance.

‘The Hero Apartment Building Community respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land on which we stand, the Boon Wurrung and Woiwurrung (Wurundjeri) peoples of the Kulin Nation. We pay respect to their Elders, past, present and emerging.’
