Image here shows the tower at 60 stories in height, this development, now approved by Melbourne city planning department will be substantially taller than nearby developments.
The inset balconies are glazed-in (openable) to protect residents against wind, the added roughness of the skin helps reduce street level wind effects.
The towers split southern face sloped back on one side. This element contains a series unique of duplex apartments.
The angled split in glazing tone is also intended to be a physical 'crease' in the building facade.
Adjacency to another approved apartment building was a major driver of the building shape, as the previously approved development did not meet city set-back provisions this building was slanted to maintain minimum building separation requirements.
Upper levels where the building face slants inward contain 2-Story apartments, while the other apartment layouts remain the same.
On the southern edge of downtown Melbourne with close access to the beach and Albert Park, the proposed development will contain 439 Apartments.
