A key milestone in the development of Melbourne Quarter is the East Tower – the first residential building to be completed. The 40-storey tower comprises 719 one-, two- and three- bedroom apartments – all of which sold prior to completion.
The East Tower building is also home to Club HQ, which gives residents exclusive access to three floors of resort-style amenities including private dining spaces, a residents’ lounge, theatre, 25-metre pool, spa, sauna and gym.
As part of Melbourne Quarter, the independent not-for-profit Summer Housing delivered accessible accommodation and communal amenity spaces within the residential component of the development. Ten dwellings, plus one extra for a full-time, live-in carer are mixed throughout East Tower’s modern apartments.
A significant aspect of Melbourne Quarter’s exterior is the restored heritage wall along Flinders Street.
Constructed in 1890 by Victorian Railways, the 174-metre retaining wall’s exposed brick has been secured, preserved and integrated into the development as part of a grand porte-cochère arrival experience. At night, a beautiful multimedia piece is illuminated on the brick wall.
Ti Tree Park, a neighbourhood park for residents is situated off Flinders Street and is planned to link to Collins Street.
