594 residences

Estimated completion

Urban's three favourite things about Aspire:

  • The landmark Elenberg Fraser sculptural design.
  • The connection to history and modernity through interior design.
  • Plentiful amenities are made for neighbours to mingle and connect.

Making a grand entrance into the CBD at 299 King Street Melbourne, is Aspire Melbourne. Developer ICD Property has come together with the architects at globally acclaimed firm Elenberg Fraser to create a landmark that embodies everything a resident could want.

Standing at a monumental 64 levels, this high-rise will house 594 residences in one, two, and three-bedroom configurations. With a slender tower that features dazzling floor-to-ceiling glass and a curved bulge near its peak, the building’s facade draws light from its convex and concave details, accentuating the curvature of its structure beautifully.

Aspire Melbourne will join the countless Elenberg Fraser skyscrapers that uniquely craft Melbourne’s skyline. Elenberg Fraser is an award winning integrated design and architecture practice operating across the Asia-Pacific region with works specialising in mixed-use, multi-residential, tourism, hospitality and commercial developments.

Cutting-edge style permeates the shared amenities within Aspire Melbourne which include:

  • A pool and gym
  • A private dining area for entertaining guests
  • A library for when you want to relax with a good read
  • A poker and mahjong room if games strike your fancy
  • Cold plunge spa and steam room
  • Private residents lounge for relaxation

These amenities are spread across five spectacular levels with outdoor function exercise areas, booking function rooms such as a champagne conservatory and a whiskey parlour which is at the height of luxury apartment amenity. Speaking of height, resident’s will be able to take advantage of the ballroom covering the highest floor of the tower with sweeping panoramic views of Melbourne, perfect for entertaining guests and extravagant functions.

Light and restrained colour palettes paired with natural material selections feature in the apartments, allowing you to connect with the delicate forms and textures. Whilst bespoke metal elements reference precious metals from the gold rush era, the verdant nature hinted at in the split-stone surfaces will also be a focal point of this epic high-rise.

The rich history of the site provides a romantic narrative for these interior spaces with the local stories of the tribes of the Kulin Nation, European Settlers and Chinese Gold Diggers woven through art and design in the lobby through to communal amenity spaces.

Aspire is the perfect home to connect effortlessly with nature and its surroundings with the ability to personalise floor plans and home colour schemes, the walkability of the city and parklands nearby as well as the careful architecturally designed interiors, made for comfort.

Located within walking distance of Melbourne’s major university, retail and parkland districts such as RMIT University, where 40,000 daily students attend, over 5 million square metres of international and local boutique, dining and retail options in the CBD and Flagstaff Gardens, to which tower residents will have sweeping panoramic views.

At 210 metres, Aspire joins a plethora of exciting developments joining the 200 metre club in Melbourne’s CBD, but Aspire’s curves and zen interior style are unmatched.
Construction of the tower is presumed to start in late 2019 with the demolition of the existing structures on the site and is expected to be completed by early 2021 by Hickory Projects with funding secured from MaxCap Group and Goldman Sachs in September of 2019.
