The $235m project is a joint venture between Fender Katsalidis and Cox Architecture, and a competition-winning design scheme for 3L Alliance.
Owing to the site’s exposure to north-westerly winds, the 80-storey Tower One, with its silver curtain wall glazing, has been rounded to capture and reflect light and views into each residential apartment.
The tower is complete with quality amenities and spaces designed to offer residents the potential to optimise their way of living, working and play. Resident socialisation is promoted through communal amenities such as the pool and spa, games rooms, karaoke suite, cinema, library, poker, and mah-jong room.
Through-site connections and unobstructed solar access under the mixed-use podium provide pedestrians with practical accessibility to the surrounds and encourages circulation through the block. For visitors to the area, the publicly accessible plaza is also available for gathering or as sheltered resting spots.
The podium is armoured with curvaceous fins and external terrace interwoven with planters. The earthy tones and exposed stonework create a distinctly Melbourne ground-level experience.
