Legal history and inner-city living blend in Melbourne's QC Residences

Melbourne will soon see work begin on another off-the-plan apartment building, with a slight twist as the city's legal history blends with inner-city living.

Located at 472 Bourke Street, QC Residences is a heritage-listed building and the site of the first purpose-built chambers for the Queen’s Council Barristers of Melbourne.

Developed by ZYTT, QC Residences will offer three distinct living experiences -- some featuring balconies, others offering New York style, three-metre high ceilings and still others retaining an individual element of the building’s history with original heritage windows and entrance doors. All feature floorboards throughout the living spaces.

The former Barrister’s Chambers will be transformed into the New York-style apartments with over three-metre high ceilings and original heritage windows.

In configurations of one, two, or three bedrooms and one or two bathrooms, these apartments range in size from 43 to 111 square metres. Priced start at $395,000 for the one-bedroom apartments.

Construction on QC Residences is set for the third quarter of 2016 with completion due in 18 months.

“Melbourne has always been likened to the streets of Paris, San Francisco, London and New York, where everything is within walking distance and with the arrival of the QC Residences, Melbourne will be a mecca for chic inner city living,” said Joseph Catanese, director of Savills Residential Projects, which is marketing the project.

QC Residences is located amongst some of Melbourne’s most historic buildings, close to trams, near cafés, restaurants, retail including Queen Vic Market and sporting venues. 

Also close by are Melbourne University and the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.

An on-site display suite is open between 10am and 1pm, Saturdays and Sundays and at other times by private appointment.
