661 Chapel St is Melbourne's new residential development, setting a benchmark for luxury living in the Victorian capital.

Delivered by Gamuda Land, the 30-storey tower provides 127 apartments in one, two, three and four-bedroom configurations. Situated beside the Yarra River, 661 Chapel St is located within minutes of the Melbourne CBD, parklands, elite shopping and dining precincts. It is located next to Melbourne High.

Completed this year, the project is slashing stamp duty costs by up to 50 per cent as well as generous government grants and incentives for new home buyers and first home buyers.

661 Chapel St gives buyers the rare opportunity to combine two apartments to create a single, large residence with some buyers choosing to snap up entire floors and create “super residences” in the sky.

Among its extensive hotel-inspired resident amenity, the South Yarra project includes a concierge, gym, members lounge and winter garden. Located on its ground floor, residents will also have access to an onyx-windowed, grand library and boardroom. A 25-metre heated pool, cantilevered six levels above Chapel Street and supported by a single beam, rivals the neighbouring hotel pool at The Olsen.

Captivating the interest of art aficionados, the project's marketing indicated that Damien Hirst, the creator behind the $100 million For the Love of God skull, had been engaged in constructing a sculptural walk upon entry, inspired by international galleries.

Marketing advised that the artwork would be displayed alongside a spectacular lighting installation by Omer Arbel.

Designed by Bird de la Coeur, apartments in the project offer open interiors, large balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the Melbourne CBD, Yarra River and the Bay.

One-bedroom homes in the project begin from $546,000 while four-bedroom apartments are valued at over $5 million. Each residence includes a suite of designer fixtures and stone and timber finishes.
