The Melburnian, Melbourne
250 St Kilda Road, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
The Melburnian occupies an outstanding site opposite Melbourne’s Botanical Gardens. The complex is regarded as one of the leading large residential developments in Melbourne.
The Melburnian combines luxurious larger apartments, more affordable one and two bedroom apartments, four level townhouses and home office facilities, with a total of 235 apartments. Other inclusions—2 restaurants, a variety of retail spaces, and a pool and gym—deliver a comprehensive luxury lifestyle experience for residents. The location of these publicly accessible activities along the boulevard enhances the public realm of St Kilda Road.
The scheme has three major components; a long, lower building to St Kilda Road, a row of contemporary townhouses to the north, and two north-facing towers overlooking a sun-filled central garden. The design and placement of the residential tower takes full advantage of the remarkable views over the Botanical Gardens and towards the city.
