661 Chapel Street is one of Melbourne’s latest luxury developments with 116 one, two, three and four-bedroom residences across 30 floors.

Sales are well underway on the project, which was completed last year, with local and international buyers snapping up the apartments quickly.

Urban has put together five reasons why you should consider a home in the South Yarra tower before it's too late.

1. Located on Melbourne’s iconic Yarra River

Situated beside the Yarra River, 661 Chapel Street enjoys views of the river, Melbourne CBD and the Bay.

Its close proximity to Melbourne’s CBD, parklands and elite shopping precincts make it the ideal residence for young professionals and downsizers looking to capitalise on convenience and style.
 

2. Designed by Bird de la Coeur Architects

The boutique Southbank-based architecture firm, Bird de la Coeur, designed the magnificent residence, winning the 2019 Good Design Awards in the category of commercial and residential architectural design.

Among their other designs include Fitzroy’s Roi project and South Yarra’s Claremont Manor.

3. Its six-star hotel-like amenities

Among its extensive hotel-inspired resident amenity, 661 Chapel Street boasts a concierge, gym, winter garden and members’ lounge.

But that’s not all, a 25-metre pool is cantilevered six levels above the streetscape, rivalling the neighbouring hotel pool at The Olsen and a grand library offers residents the opportunity to tuck away in their own home.

All these amenities are available from $546,000, the price of a one-bedroom, one-bathroom residence in the building.
 

4. The soaring private lobby/ gallery

The soaring private lobby spans four-storeys, featuring a gallery-like space filled with artwork and lighting installation.

Inspired by international galleries, the development features a sculptural walk upon entry, showcasing work by Omar Arbel, as well as Damien Hirst, the creator behind the ‘For the Love of God’ skull, which sold for $100 million to an anonymous consortium in 2007.

5. Combine two apartments to create a single residence

Setting new benchmarks for luxury in Victoria, Gamuda Land’s Chapel Street project presents buyers with the rare opportunity to combine two apartments to create a single, large residence.

Some residents have already claimed entire floors within the complex, creating “super residences” in the sky.
