Not only does it deliver 5-star hotel amenities, it also has the convenience of being near world-class restaurants, cafes, markets and some of the best educational facilities and universities Melbourne has to offer.The award-winning architecture and interior design firm Carr Design created the apartments to maximise external views, space and natural light, with interiors including reflective surfaces, natural and concealed doors.

Fender Katsilidis designed the building. Its striking geometric façade takes full advantage of reflective surfaces to highlight it's 220-metres of uninterrupted Yarra riverfront. Residents benefit from sweeping views from the Yarra to Port Phillip Bay.

Set amongst Melbourne’s most diverse neighbourhood, the development boasts close access to the waterside cafés, restaurants and bars at South Wharf Promenade, as well as the laneways, arcades and grand boulevards of the nearby Melbourne CBD.

And don't forget everything else Docklands offers residents, with the precinct benefitting from 3,500 sqm of new riverfront parkland at Seafarers Rest.
