Developer Milbex, established in 2004, has a strong focus on developing stylish and contemporary properties. The best way to ensure Park Ave met these criteria was to engage the design-focused and multi-disciplinary CHT Architecture. With this powerhouse onside, Milbex has delivered a stunning addition to the cultural precinct of South Melbourne.
Park Ave’s lower podium is made of firm urbane lines, contrasted by the upper tower’s soaring waves. The design draws on the materiality from Lower Manhattan, a once-industrial area in New York that is now a coveted postcode.
Offering a wide selection of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom residences, Park Ave boasts sleek, streamlined interiors. Open floorplans grant the feeling of space while floor to ceiling windows allow stunning views over South Melbourne and the CBD skyline.
Timber flooring creates a striking contrast against high-end finishes like the stone kitchen benchtops. European appliances will make cooking an easy affair, while bathrooms and ensuites showcase elegantly designed inclusions.
The tradition of high-end New York luxury continues in the exclusive residents' amenities. Friends and family will be welcomed in a striking foyer, where mirror ceilings reflect polished marble floors on the way to a concierge desk which offers services usually found in premium, boutique hotels. Residents can use the concierge to arrange dry cleaning, parcel collection and supermarket storage, as well as transportation and dining reservations.
The indulgent residents’ lounge exudes glamour and charisma. These spaces are made for hosting friends or sitting on velvet sofas reading books by the fireplace. A residents-only wine cellar is a thoughtful inclusion and an opulent way to end the day.
Park Ave residents will have access to modern cultural and arts amenities on offer in South Melbourne. Bordering on Melbourne’s CBD, the historic precinct has undergone regeneration from a once industrial zone to a modern mecca of urban culture.
Rated 96 out of 100 for walkability, Park Ave is ideally located near the Domain Precinct where residents can visit iconic landmarks like the Royal Botanic Gardens and the Shrine of Remembrance. For art enthusiasts, the Southbank Theatre and the Malthouse Theatre are only minutes away while the National Gallery of Victoria is a short tram ride away.
South Melbourne is renowned for its buzzing food scene. Restaurants along nearby Wells Street and St Kilda Road offer the opportunity to experience an array of different cuisines, from Taiwanese dumplings at Peko Peko to Italian-style pizzas at Rocket Pizza Restaurant or Australian-fusion at The Olive Tree.
A range of high-end educational institutes like Mac Robertson Girls School, Melbourne Grammar School, Melbourne Girls Grammar and Christ Church Grammar are all conveniently accessible by tram, car, bike or foot at Park Ave.
