Architect Karl Fender is likely to emerge among the initial buyers in the Saint Moritz, St Kilda project.

He's the lead architect on the $550 million redevelopment of the Novotel hotel site on St Kilda’s Esplanade which officially went on sale recently.

It is a joint venture between Tim Gurner and Greg Shand, the Sydney developer.

"I would live here in a heartbeat," Fender told a recent property industry lunch.

"Watch this space," he added noting he was "really invested, as the office is, in the location".

"To live here and to have the Stokehouse as my canteen, to have the beach bumping against my front door, look it's just an amazing project in an amazing location and you'd have to be a fool to not want to live here desperately, and I'm no fool."

He calls a 71st floor apartment in Eureka Tower home.
