Developer World Class Land has made headlines with its latest project Australia 108. The apartment development on Southbank Boulevard rises 319 metres into the air, making it the tallest of its kind in the southern hemisphere.
The sky-rise apartments comprising are ready for move in now, while the second stage has just been released to market.
Interiors are by Carr Design Group, led by the much-lauded Sue Carr. Of Australia 108’s design style, she says, “These premium apartments are a unique offering for Australia 108. Scullery spaces serve expansive open plan kitchens, whilst hotel-style luxury is brought to bathing amenities to create generous sleeping suites. Wide timber floorboards and a subtle material palette of reconstituted stone, natural stone, and porcelain create a subtle and calming palette.”
Full-height windows ensure living spaces are filled with natural light, while simultaneously granting views out over Melbourne’s CBD. Award-winning interior design practice, Carr Design Group, has brought its signature style to these residences — ensuring each space reflects the grandeur of the overall structure.
Hirsch Bedner Associates — a company that has provided some of the most prominent luxury hotels and residences around the world — has worked in collaboration with Carr Design Group to create the project’s premium shared amenities. From swimming pools to gyms and virtual golf facilities to an indoor movie theatre, the multiple levels of amenities provide endless opportunities for entertainment.
These luxurious on-site facilities also include a fitness centre with yoga and pilates studios overlooking a stunning city vista, and a luxuriously-appointed bar and lounge.
There’s always something to do in Melbourne and Australia 108’s prime position means residents are placed in the midst of the action. The Arts Precinct is just minutes from the doorstep. Here, residents can visit the National Gallery of Victoria, catch a show at the Southbank Theatre, or browse the weekend markets along St Kilda Road.
In the other direction, the Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex has no shortage of retail and dining outlets. Thanks to its cocktail bars, restaurants along the riverfront and even a cinema, Crown is a hotspot for both locals and tourists.
In January, residents can reserve tickets at the Australian Open and walk leisurely to the Rod Laver Arena without worrying about how to get home. Similarly, going to see games at the MCG and AAMI Park will be a breeze.
Melbourne is known as a cultural capital with an amazing café, restaurant and bar scene. In the city, one need only venture down one of the many laneways to find a new pop-up bar or secret rooftop cocktail venue.
