Victoriana's website is taking registrations of interest from prospective buyers, with one, two, three, four, five and six bedroom apartments on offer.

As seen below, the higher echelon apartments within the development will be something to behold, in sheer size alone.

With advertising hoardings onsite and a display suite in the works, Victoriana will insert itself into a super active development scene along St Kilda Road and Queens Road. At present seven residential towers are at construction, with two additional projects at sales.

The result of the double site is a curving tower designed by RotheLowman. Setbacks to upper levels have allowed for the inclusion of a squadron of individual pools and spas, pointing toward the levels the developer has gone to in order to attract the premium buyer.
