Urban's three favourite things about Sapphire by the Gardens:

  • Beautiful garden and city views.
  • A striking amenities bridge linking the towers.
  • A lively podium with overhanging plants and green space.

Commanding views over the pristine World Heritage Carlton Gardens, soars Sapphire by the Gardens, Melbourne’s most iconic twin tower development. Designed by Fender Katsalidis in collaboration with Cox Architecture, the towers will rise 232 metres and 222 metres above ground level boasting over 60 levels of luxurious apartments and over 500 Shangri-La Hotel suites located at 308 Exhibition Street, Melbourne. 

Located in arguably the most sought after sites in Melbourne CBD, overlooking the Royal Exhibition Centre and having the privileged corner position to give residents panoramic city views.

Sapphire by the Gardens is just a short walking distance from iconic market and retail precincts such as the Queen Victoria Market and Melbourne Central Shopping Centre precinct with sky bridges and arcades connecting shopping centres and dining halls from Lonsdale Street to Flinders Street delivering over 2,000 retail and restaurant options.

With Parliament House, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Lygon Street in such close proximity, Sapphire by the Garden residents will be able to enjoy the finest architecture and heritage spots of the city as well as forming part of the cultural fabric.

Developed by SP Setia, amenities within Sapphire by the Gardens are extraordinary within the curved and sleek designed sky bridge connecting the twin towers at level 46 with private dining and private lounges, a relaxing pool with a glass bottom overlooking the ground below, a spa and wellness centre, a private bar and soon to be home to Melbourne’s largest grand ballroom.

Sapphire by the Gardens AMENITIES INCLUDE:

  • A state of the art gymnasium.
  • Yoga studio.
  • Sky Lounge and restaurant.
  • Terracing podiums.
  • Communal courtyards.
  • A cinema.
  • Karaoke and games room.
  • A fireplace and piano room.
  • A 25 metre heated pool.

These inclusions inspire and encourage residents to form a neighbourhood and a sense of community without ever having to leave the building.

Featuring 345 two and three bedroom apartments and exclusive penthouses sub-penthouses, each apartment has been carefully designed with the finest detailed features to match its prestigious location.

Floor to ceiling windows showcase either a garden view of Carlton Gardens or a city view of the Melbourne CBD depending on the north or south facing apartment you choose. The tower is constructed in a way that allows for all apartments to be exposed to natural light due to the curved facade. Interiors are filled with luxurious finishes and fittings with modern timber veneer flooring, opulent marble, stone and porcelain tiles and dark bronze details throughout. 

Residents can take advantage of the large amounts of public space surrounding Sapphire by the Gardens, however the development has a large rooftop podium garden that connects both of the towers and is filled with vertical greenery and overhanging planter boxes.
290 car spaces and 298 bicycle spaces are available to residents as well as 3,000 square metres of retail tenancy space on the ground floor and childcare facilities.

The towers are expected to be completed in early 2022 with the opening of the new 500 suite Shangri-La slated for mid 2022.

Hey Ocean, thank you for your question and apologies for a late reply!
Construction has begun as of late last year. At this present time gantries have been installed on the La Trobe Street and Exhibition Street frontage. The core boxes for both towers vary between level 6 and 4 at the moment.

Hi All, this is an amazing project. It'll be a jewel in Melbourne. Is this 'slated completion' of late 2020 possible? Impressed.
