Urban's three favourite things about Swanston Central:

  • The shimmering colours of the glass facade.
  • Uninterrupted views of the city and beyond.
  • Luxurious amenities and sky lounges.

Rising up 237 metres into the sky at the northern gateway to the CBD at 168 Victoria Street, Carlton, Swanston Central needs to be seen to be believed. Externally it reflects the beauty and brilliance of Melbourne skyline with its vertical grid of pink, silver and green hues whilst internally the floor to ceiling windows provide residents with an impressive unimpeded outlook.

Swanston Central stands dominantly overlooking the city comprising of 1035 spacious apartments across 72 floors with residential amenities fit to make any CBD dweller feel elegant and peaceful. The amenities are split across low lying and high flying floors within the tower on levels 6, 47 and 69.

The amenities for level 6 include:

  • Window view cabanas
  • A 25 metre lap pool with two spas
  • Cold plunge spa
  • Steam room
  • Yoga room
  • Hanging lounge pods and wellness centre

Levels 47 of the tower feature grand dining rooms available for booking by the residents, a cinema and a games room for residents to connect and relax and a skyline bar and lounge with sweeping panoramic city views, acting as a private residents observatory on level 69.

Located directly amongst the RMIT University precinct, Swanston Central residents will be able to enjoy the best the city has to offer with direct access to all the finest restaurants, cafes, boutique shopping and entertainment precincts as well as all of the quirky and grungy bars that litter the northern quarter of the CBD.

Swanston Central is diagonally opposite the Queen Victoria Market, culture bubbles around the impressive building that provides a luxurious modern lifestyle option next to some of the cities most historic sites. From the State Library to Chinatown, and everything in between, anything a city dweller could want is on the doorstep of Swanston Central.

Elizabeth Street trams can effortlessly take residents to the far reaches of the city or a day at the beach for something different which is typically only 20 minutes away via tram.
Offering more bicycle spaces than car spaces, the tower’s design encourages residents to use public transport, walking and bicycle paths instead of adding extra car-dependant pressure within the CBD, which increases stress and discomfort.

Spacious floor plans come alive in Swanston Central with average sizes between 60 to 150 square metres for one, two and three bedroom configurations.
Each apartment within the Swanston Central development features a wintergarden to allow fresh air to filter through the living spaces and provide an outdoor space for plants to thrive, outdoor entertaining on warm nights and your own private sanctuary to read or have morning coffee with a comfortable breeze.

The interior design by Kerry Phelan Design Office collaborates with architects Elenberg Fraser and developer Hengyi to create a strong architectural aesthetic tempered by a soulful vibe to warm each residence. Contemporary and modern finishes with personal customisation options with light or dark colour schemes are available for purchasers, providing a strong sense of home and style.

Swanston Central is an architectural showpiece that shows off just how convenient and easy life can be when living in this statement tower.
