North Melbourne is no stranger to the boutique apartment trend, but it hasn’t seen a marriage of design and location quite like Gardiner on the Park.

An intimate collection of just 27 one, two and three bedroom residences, this iconic building has been designed with a classic aesthetic to fit in with the surrounding urban landscape.

There’s a timeless quality to Gardiner on the Park’s external facade, particularly in the respectful scale and thoughtful use of familiar materials like concrete, steel and predominantly glass.


Designed by renowned architects Peddle Thorp and secluded in a particularly quiet spot in sought-after North Melbourne, each carefully configured home offers relaxing views across neighbouring Gardiner Reserve and out towards the CBD skyline.

Distinctive square window framing gives the free-flowing, open plan living areas a different kind of character to the usual apartment feel. A warm and neutral interior palette offers a contemporary backdrop and is grounded by the natural timber flooring.

Gardiner on the Park’s kitchens will have busy families and weekend entertainers lining up. Designed to be functional on the inside and beautiful on the outside, these kitchens are built around the craftsmanship of sleek white cabinetry, white stone bench tops and the latest stainless steel appliances. Some homes also feature a spacious island bench which is sure to be a popular gathering spot or the place to grab breakfast on the run.


Bathrooms have been elegantly pieced together using textures and materials that exude luxury in its simplest form. There’s nothing to distract here, with large format floor and wall tiling, a frameless walk-in shower, expansive mirrored cabinetry, a hanging vanity with a raised basin and yet more storage for a tidier, more calming environment.

Shared spaces can make a real difference to a project such as this, and on the podium level, the stunning rooftop garden is the kind of place you might find it difficult to tear yourself away from, with its various seating, dining and relaxing areas, all serving up more of those impressive views. Lush planting includes miniature lawns, raised beds and leafy trees.

In a building of such unique positioning, of particular interest to many will be the premium three bedroom residences on levels 8 and 9. Explains Bradley Dean of Eton Property Group, “Taking up a whole floor each, these incredibly spacious homes enjoy unobstructed city views across the park which will never be built out. This is a truly rare opportunity.”


Just 1.5km from Melbourne’s CBD, Gardiner on the Park taps into the abundance of shopping, dining, entertainment and relaxing parks and gardens that make North Melbourne a sought-after spot. Local coffee favourites include Code Black and 5 Lire Cafe, whilst cool bars and pubs like Prudence and The Courthouse are always popular.

Ideally located for city workers, Gardiner on the Park is a quick walk or even quicker tram ride from pretty much anywhere in the CBD. And with Peddle Thorp’s considered design aesthetic at the heart of every residence, the result is a high-quality home in a tangibly unique park front location which will attract owner-occupiers and investors alike.


One bedroom apartments start from $405,000, with the whole floor, three bedroom residences priced from $1,255,000.
