Wide panoramas of the CBD on one side and Port Phillip Bay on the other are a major drawcard for buyers interested in the first stage of Melbourne Square, a $2.8 billion mixed-use development on the corner of Southbank’s Power and Kavanagh Streets, very close to the arts and entertainment precinct.
Uninterrupted views across the entire CBD, or over Albert Park Lake to Port Phillip Bay can be had from many of the apartments, according to Andrew Leoncelli, head of CBRE residential project marketing. In the project’s first stage, two towers of 54 and 67 levels will be built. North-facing apartments above level 42 will have uninterrupted city views, Andrew says.
“The outstanding views, a quieter location near one of Melbourne’s best entertainment zones at Southbank and the quality of Melbourne Square’s design and amenities are all convincing purchasers,” he says. Half of the first release of 980 apartments sold in the three weeks after Melbourne Square’s launch. Cox Architecture’s masterplan for the 2.2-hectare site includes four residential towers, a commercial building, a 600-bed hotel and shops.
