Melbourne's R.Iconic does not only boast some of the most unique onsite amenities in any development, but possesses a range of features that residents will love.

This $850 million development from R.Corporation has been designed by Plus Architecture with the owner-occupier in mind.

Situated in Melbourne’s CBD, R.Iconic has a clear focus on wellbeing, fitness, entertainment, nature and technology.

Urban has taken a look at seven things we love about R.Iconic.

1. Live in a community-focused neighbourhood

A deliberately considered neighbourhood, R.Iconic is perfectly positioned within Melbourne’s newest extension, CBD South.

The project connects multiple levels of vibrant community, centred within the community of the established surrounds, the community amongst many shared resident spaces and the communities within each floor.

“These positive levels of community are encouraged by the way we designed the building, with places where neighbours can choose to get to know each other”


2. Hotel services

R.Iconic has double the amenity of any project of its type, with the world-class hotel delivering numerous amenities for residents to enjoy.

Offering a calming welcome home is the project’s infinity lobby, with its grounding space detailed with rich natural textures, sights, and sounds.

The hotel boasts a relaxing lobby garden, clubhouse, supermarket, speciality retail and dining, all open to residents.

Other features include a bicycle café, Mercedes loan van, e-bikes and scooters, electric car charging stations, secure bike storage, as well as business space and digital media rooms.

3. Leisure and lifestyle amenities

Designed to enhance physical, mental and social wellbeing, the R.Iconic development includes outdoor recreational sports courts, podium gardens, fitness state, infinity running track and wellness pavilion.

Other lifestyle features that residents can enjoy include an outdoor infinity pool, barbeque area and fire pit, virtual golf range, wine vault, cinema and karaoke room and podium gardens.

A whiskey lounge, Mahjong room, garden pavilions and floatation spa are also on site.

4. Luxurious interiors

Consistent and stylistically cohesive interiors characterise the home, designed to surround residents with a harmonious energy.

“We crafted each apartment as a restful space away from life’s stresses”


The design team have been done this through the intelligent use of softened edges, controlled curves, and circular forms.

Neutral white interiors provide a blank canvas for residents to add their own style and personality, underpinned by the warmth of floorboards to entries.

5. Wealth of nearby amenity

Continually voted the world’s most liveable city, Melbourne is alive with luxury retail, fashion, entertainment, dining, education and the arts.

R.Iconic is positioned in a well-established extension to the south of the CBD with a wealth of nearby amenities, including South Melbourne retail strips, the Crown Casino and the renowned arts precinct.

Well-serviced by public transport and close by internationally-recognised universities, this vibrant community delivers a melting pot of residents and convenient living experiences.

Everything you need is within 15 minutes thanks to a light rail outside the front door and numerous bike paths that surround the development.

6. Prestigious water views

R.Iconic’s apartments and penthouses are stylishly refined with expansive windows that frame views across Melbourne.

“We deliberately chose R.Iconic’s location for its protected views”.


Surrounded by low-rise residential and restricted height zones, R.Iconic will be the only building with protected, endless views to the water and the city.

7. Delivered by the R.Corporation

R.Corporation boasts an impressive 100 per cent completion rate on the 30 residential, commercial and retail buildings they have created across Melbourne.

The group’s work is defined by a vision to create unique developments and iconic communities, building spaces that unify and enrich the lives of the people who live and work there.

R.Corporation boasts more than 20 years’ experience, with some of their recent projects including Metropol at St Kilda and The Hudson at Brunswick.
