Consisting of 116 apartments over 30 floors, the Bird de le Coeur designed development is close Melbourne High School and the Yarra River.

661 Chapel St’s Project director Aw Sei Cheh said the development was inspired by town making principles and the location was a major selling point for local and interstate buyers.

“We have had strong sales for this project, and strong inter-state sales too – with 15% of purchasers coming from NSW,” he said.

“Sydney-siders are attracted to Chapel Street’s legendary status as Melbourne’s premier shopping street, the locality to greenery such as the Yarra river and Royal Botanical Gardens, and its proximity to Melbourne CBD and other landmarks such as the MCG.”

The Urban Developer recently reported that sales for the project are at approximately 70%.

Prices for the apartments start at $546,000 for a one bedroom, and go up to $2.7 million for a three bedroom.

There is an unsold $22 million penthouse shell which will be customised to the purchaser’s brief by celebrity interior designer David Hicks who has undertaken some preliminary (pictured) designs.

It is a 729 sqm residence over three levels, likely to include three bedrooms, five bathrooms, sauna, steam and shower room, gym and yoga room, cinema, study and wine cellar.
 
The 729 sqm space includes 93 sqm of balcony space and 82 sqm of rooftop.
