• Premium building in prime location
• Innovative design solutions
A prime location overlooking Albert Park created an opportunity to create a premium building with strong design values. Working in a high-end city location was complex and challenging, involving urban design and council consents in relation to views and proximity to Albert Park, access issues during construction, multi-national suppliers and international purchasers. However, innovative design solutions – including vertical car lifts, overhanging balconies, and a suspended swimming pool – ultimately produced a landmark building and prime residential real estate.
To ensure the fiscal viability of the project a sustained period of value management was undertaken during construction. A number of apartments were customized to meet specific buyer interest, including the creation of a unique one-bedroom apartment with a private art gallery. By working closely with the client, consultants and contractors, PB&A was able to deliver great architecture on budget to a targeted market.
