Surrounded by water on three sides and only moments from Melbourne’s CBD, Victoria Harbour is a vibrant community where world-class residential buildings sit side by side
Surrounded by water on three sides and only moments from Melbourne’s CBD, Victoria Harbour is a vibrant community where world-class residential buildings sit side by side among restaurants, retailers, businesses, and leisure amenities — making it an ideal place to live, work and play.
With a 6-star green communities rating from the Green Building Council of Australia, Victoria Harbour has been built and delivered by Lendlease to support health and wellbeing, with over 30 per cent of the precinct dedicated to open spaces and 2.5km of waterfront promenade.
Home to 5,000 residents, the precinct offers access to more than 130 retailers and community facilities, including specialty stores, bars and cafés, fitness clubs, parks, and Australia’s first 6-star green star award-winning Library at The Dock.
Located only a short walk away from Southern Cross Train Station and a 5-minute free tram ride from the CBD, Victoria Harbour boasts magnificent city, harbour and bay views, as well as convenience and connectivity to the city and beyond. Only 7% of residential properties in the City of Melbourne sit within 20 metres of water, highlighting this desirable location’s rarity.
Distinguished by its charming marina character, this evolving city neighbourhood offers a unique lifestyle opportunity for both owner occupiers and investors. With rent for Docklands properties achieving a median 30% premium over greater Melbourne, and an average yield of 4.75%, the range of apartments is ideal for those looking to make a smart investment in Melbourne’s property market.
No.1 Collins Wharf, the newest residential offering due to be completed early next year, is a sophisticated architectural statement. Its award-winning architect firm, Bates Smart, has designed this collection of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments and terrace-style homes, positioned to take advantage of views over Port Phillip Bay and the Yarra River.
Inside each home, warm colour palettes and textures of stone and timberwork reference the natural beauty found in the precinct’s open spaces and esplanades. These artful touches are repeated in the building’s shared amenities, including the elegant ground-floor lobby, an indoor swimming pool, and shared WiFi-enabled areas for work and entertainment.
World-class architect Koichi Takada has designed neighbouring apartment projects, 883 Collins Street and 889 Collins Street. As he explains, his vision was “to bring the character, warmth, and materiality of the surrounding environment to life by telling the story of the precinct’s rich maritime history in each building’s fluid, graceful expression of water, sky, and city.”
The design and orientation give residents the opportunity to take full advantage of the parks, green spaces and public plazas found in and around Victoria Harbour — including Buluk Park, Waterside Place, Collins Landing and the Water Plaza.
With sophistication at the core of its design, apartments provide residents with abundant natural light, style, and comfort, featuring contemporary designs with high-quality fixtures and finishes such as timber floors, Italian-made kitchens and Miele appliances.
Both 883 and 889 Collins Street feature a range of exclusive resident amenities, including an indoor pool, gym, spa, cinema, library facilities, residents’ lounge and kitchen, private dining, entertainment spaces, games room and yoga studio. Additional communal areas include rooftop terrace gardens and function spaces which residents can book for social gatherings — offering respite from the hustle and bustle of the city.
