The Melbourne developer Gurner has revealed the first design details for its proposed Saint Moritz project.

It is its most ambitious project to-date with a $550 million end value.

It will have 120 beachside residences along with venues anchoring the ground level.

The pricing of the residences average $3.5 million.

Gurner is currently amending the exisiting permit for 14 – 16 The Esplanade, St Kilda, to halve the number of apartments from 240 to 120.

“ We believe the luxury end of the market has been waiting for something like this to come along," Tim Gurner said. 

Fender Katsalidis is the lead architect, with Koichi Takada Architects appointed to design one of the three buildings.

The interior designer is David Hicks.

Jack Merlo has been tasked with the landscapes. 

The first of the three buildings, Pacific House, is set to launch mid-year, featuring 45 residences averaging $4 million.

The $30 million penthouse that sits atop Pacific House will offer 650sqm of internal space along with a substantial 175sqm terrace with private pool, six bedrooms, a seven car private garage with direct access lift, four living rooms, in-home sauna and gym. 

The double-storey penthouse will have a cascading two-storey water feature surrounded by marble-clad walls, a solid Nero Marquina bathtub with 180 degree water views, another internal pool that submerges into the rooms below - complete with transparent glass that can be viewed from the lower level - a floating fireplace and a 1000-bottle, temperature-controlled wine cellar, accessible via a sculptural spiral staircase.  

Tim Gurner is confident they will achieve a Melbourne record.  

“We initially designed the penthouse with a floorplan of over 1,300sqm and an even bigger price-tag however the early feedback we have received from our local and international clientele was that a penthouse of this size would be too big even for them,” he said.

Gurner will offer a full design customisation package included within the purchase price. 

"The service will allow purchasers to work directly with David Hicks and Tim Gurner to create interior spaces that are only limited by one’s imagination – bowling alleys, infra-red sauna and steam-rooms, cigar rooms, poker rooms, art galleries or perhaps even sound-proofed home offices or recording studios," said Gurner

“Literally anything is possible at Saint Moritz,” he said.

The 120 private residences encompassing two, three bedroom, four, five and six bedroom offerings, comes with prices ranging from $1.4 million to $30 million-plus. 

The project is currently taking registrations of interest with sales to launch in mid 2019.
