Located in Melbourne’s picturesque northern city-fringe, surrounded by heritage listed Victorian houses and shop-fronts, 249-265 Queens Parade (249QP) is in the heart of one of the city’s most sought-after areas. 

Salta Properties’ vision for 249QP came to life through the desire to create premium residences that complement the flourishing community of Fitzroy North, enriched with celebrated hospitality and retail.

Perfectly situated next to renowned Merri Creek, 249QP’s design was inspired by the raw material found within the creek bed and beneath the foundations of the building itself – distinctive basalt rock. From the foundations up, across its 14-levels, 249QP adopts a timeless and luxurious design from architects Fieldwork Projects. 


Boasting 92 impeccably designed apartments, 249QP offers residents a unique choice of stylish, thoughtfully curated apartments that celebrate the electrifying creative arts culture within the local streetscape and surrounding suburbs.

The considered use of warm ambient lighting, spotted gum finish timber panels, luxurious banquette seating upholstery and bluestone floor tiles exudes warmth and comfort throughout. Not only is the space charming, it also provides residents with a functional foyer enabling a modern working life for those who need a quiet space outside the office.

The breathtaking design continues with the addition of a generously landscaped rooftop terrace, expertly designed by Tract to create a communal space accessible to residents throughout the year. The enchanting 360-degree views across Fitzroy North towards the Melbourne’s CBD and surrounds can be enjoyed by all from this stunning rooftop.

Quino Holland, Director of Fieldwork, said that the aim was to create a building that encompassed the warmth of nature yet aged gracefully, using numerous environmentally sustainable practices featured in the design, build and future operation of 249QP.

“The interior design was inspired by elements in Australian nature; the lobby showcases this through the contrasting warmth of Australian timbers and the fresh touches of the bluestone floors.


“Use of robust and natural materials, such as brick and concrete will ensure the building ages well and continues to present and perform well in the future,” said Quino.

Convenience is key for residents of 249QP, who will have a multitude of transport options at their fingertips including the 86- tram route, 246- bus route, Clifton Hill and Rushall train stations, ensuring seamless work commutes to the CBD and inner suburbs. 

The 249QP address brings with it an abundance of hospitality and cultural activities as well as numerous fitness and leisure options – with the Merri Creek Trail, scenic 24 hectare Edinburgh Gardens, Darling Gardens and Collingwood Leisure Centre. 

Home buyers can imagine their own slice of the highly sought-after north at 249QP through visiting its display suite at 249 Queens Parade, Fitzroy North on Saturday and Sunday from 11am – 1pm or by private appointment.
