That feeling of walking through the front door and into a beautiful lobby is an exciting prospect for many homebuyers who understand the importance of first impressions.

Not only must residents be welcomed by the space, but an apartment entrance is effectively the first impression family and friends will make of your home.

“Today’s lobbies are true ‘great-room’ environments”, Barbara Best-Santos, the associate principal of the multi-residential design firm, ForrestPerkins, said.

For this reason, many homebuyers and investors are starting to consider luxe lobbies before committing to purchasing their new apartment.

Urban takes a look at six Melbourne apartments that boast lobbies sure to leave a great impression.

1. Seafarers, Docklands
Developer: Riverlee

Delivered by Riverlee, Seafarers will transform the city’s last remaining Yarra River frontage into a new visionary waterfront precinct.

Centred on an inspired reimagining of the heritage-protected Goods Shed 5, the Nonda Katsalidis-designed residence will feature Melbourne’s first international hotel-branded residences – 1 Hotel & Homes, above Australia’s first 1 Hotel.

This means residents will enjoy a 24-hour concierge, valet parking and a grand entrance lobby that assures guests are wowed upon entry.

2. Melbourne Square, Southbank
Developer: OSK Property

Melbourne Square is the latest development from OSK Property, boasting 1,054 apartments in a range of configurations.

The Southbank development boasts both public and private amenities, thoughtfully considered to give residents a multitude of relaxation, work and entertainment zones.

Designed by Elenberg Fraser, St Boulevard will include three 20 and nine-floor towers comprising 435 one, two and three-bedroom apartments.
