Public transport at your doorstep, world-renowned universities just down the road, trendy cafés and eateries just a stroll away and a short elevator ride to exclusive residents’ facilities — if you’re studying or just starting a new career in the city, you couldn’t find a better home than Melbourne Grand’s latest release, The Lonsdale Collection.


These spacious 1, 2 and 3 bedroom city apartments place you in the perfect position on Lonsdale Street — close to the prestigious Legal Precinct, Flagstaff Gardens, Melbourne University and RMIT, public transport, and plenty more.

The apartments in The Lonsdale Collection showcase high-quality features, including gourmet kitchens with Miele appliances, motorised roller blinds in living areas and bedrooms, German tapware, and integrated split-system air conditioning.

The spacious designs range up to 113m2 and feel more like homes than apartments, with features such as double-glazed floor-to-ceiling windows. Acoustic engineering also ensures you won’t hear your neighbours when studying or trying to get an early night’s sleep.


These truly are modern city homes. Every apartment is NBN-ready, with secure building access, regular security patrols, video intercoms, and 24-hour concierge. In addition, you have access to an exclusive coffee bar and other fantastic amenities such as an on-site residents lounge, formal banquet room, gym, pool, and sauna, as well as a yoga studio.

The Lonsdale Collection places you in the heart of Melbourne’s vibrant city life and is approximately 10 minutes to major universities — Melbourne University is a quick tram ride away, while RMIT is a brief stroll down Lonsdale Street.

Life in Melbourne isn’t all about working hard and studying, however. You can take a much-needed break and explore the city’s iconic laneways. Nearby, there’s an array of restaurants and trendy cafés. From a morning coffee at Higher Ground to freshly made treats at Laurent Artisan Bakery, trying something new every day is easy.


Nearby Flagstaff Gardens is perfect for laying out a blanket and soaking up the sun, playing tennis or lawn bowls, while the iconic State Library is just minutes away — with exceptional public facilities for students and city workers alike.

Accessible by foot or by tram, the Queen Victoria Markets is made up of stalls selling anything from clothes and toys to fresh fruit and vegetables. Pick up your weekly groceries or taste flavours from around the world at the spectacular (and frequent) Night Markets.
