The Chapel Street precinct is in the midst of a rejuvenation, as top eateries open up shop, and highly-sought after clothing labels and big-name stores choose the buzzing destination to open up a boutique. 

And while it has always been Melbourne’s destination for the hip and happening, Chapel Street has never been more popular, which explains why people who like to shop, drink and eat here, also want to live within its thriving confines.

Nestled in the upmarket South Yarra end is a new development set to redefine the concept of luxury living.


With interiors by Kate Roach, and the development designed by internationally renowned Fender Katsalidis Architects, every apartment within ‘Esque’ is designed to feel like a work of art, seeking inspiration from traditional Parisian-style dwellings.

Clean, fine lines are complemented by a choice of two colour schemes: either a neutral, homely colour palette with tapware made from flemish copper and splashes of brushed bronze.

Or alternatively, a darker, bolder feel, with smokey grey floorboards, brass tapware and champagne plated metal accents sprinkled throughout; the two options ensure there’s a preference to suit every taste.

There are just four apartments to every level, which not only helps maximise space, but ensures a level of privacy unfound in large-scale developments.

Residents will also have access to an expansive and landscaped rooftop garden for entertaining, which will come complete with barbecues, outdoor furniture to soak up balmy evenings, and panoramic views of Melbourne’s glittering skyline and the Yarra River.


When it comes to location, all of the essentials are in walking distance, helping to explain why so many look to live within the Chapel Street precinct.

A number of hip cafes, boutiques, top restaurants and a cinema are within walking distance, South Yarra station is around the corner, while a tram lines run along Chapel Street and Toorak Road, connecting you to wherever you need to go.

Melbourne’s sporting precinct and arts centre is also conveniently nearby, as is The Tan running track along the beautiful Yarra River.
