Few apartment developments make the international headlines. Collins Arch, quite rightly, is one of them.

Set to become Melbourne’s most prestigious address, the strikingly-designed Collins Arch is a new architectural landmark that will truly redefine Melbourne’s skyline.

Developers CBUS Property are no strangers to groundbreaking residential projects, with over $5billion of projects currently in development. And the calibre of the team they pulled together for Collins Arch attests to that respected experience.article-imageA combined effort from Australian architectural practice Woods Bagot and SHoP Architects from New York, the dual-tower development will combine offices, a luxury 5-star hotel and some of the most premium residences in Melbourne. This is true destination living.

From the bustling 2,000sqm of public space along Collins Street and Market Street, the lobby immediately brings the tempo down for a relaxed welcome into what looks set to be the new benchmark for residential architecture.

Whilst there are only 202 residences available, the array of apartment configurations at Collins Arch means all points on the property market have something to pique their interest here.

Take, for example, the incredible Skybridge residences. These unprecedented residences will link the two towers and feature two and three bedroom apartments. If you’re in the market for an uncompromising statement of a home, there won’t be many to match these. article-imageInteriors are undeniably world-class and designed to create homes that are peaceful and welcoming. This is achieved through the selection of warm finishes and furnishings, including timer floor boards throughout the living areas. Every apartment, designed to embrace and connect the character of the building’s architecture, is positioned and rotated to make the most of the views from the epicentre of Melbourne’s CBD.

Imagine a kitchen that invites and inspires, and you’re on the right page. Appliances come courtesy of Miele, with stone bench tops, premium veneer cabinetry taking care of storage and brushed nickel fixtures for a contemporary twist.

Lovers of entertaining as we are, it’s great to see that every home has a large island bench with customised pendant feature lighting. And in an even smarter move, kitchens in premium apartments also enjoy those city views thanks to the considered floor plan.

Unusually for a high rise residential tower, there are still residences with balconies and many with terraces. All residences on the south facade of the building feature outdoor terraces that are rotated to the south-east to cleverly maximise views and capture light throughout the day.

Take a look at the list of additional amenities Collins Arch includes and you get a sense of the level of luxury CBUS are intent on creating. From the 25m pool, gym and yoga studio to the residents’ club room, private dining rooms and kitchen, you can live bigger life with little effort.

The communal outdoor terraces are again ready for entertaining or relaxing, with plenty of seating. And to top it all off, the sky garden to end all sky gardens – a fully enclosed 830sqm oasis high above Melbourne’s vibrant city streets.

For those seriously considering a once-in-a-lifetime property purchase in an historic Australian icon, it might be wise to make a move sooner rather than later. We doubt Collins Arch will be on the market for very long.
