St Kilda Road, Melbourne’s iconic boulevard, continues to deliver on its premium apartment offering. Renowned architects, Elenberg Fraser know the landscape well, having been charged by developers The Shakespeare Group with helming their St Boulevard project.
With over 70% sold of the apartments released, St Boulevard is an absolute standout residential project for the St Kilda Road precinct, making the best of its lush surroundings, flanked by Albert Park and Fawkner Park.
The exquisite interiors of these luxurious one, two and three bedroom apartments are filled with natural light thanks to the full height glazing. But cleverly, feature perforated screens can filter the light and provide a subtle and flexible definition of spaces.
There is a calm authenticity to the interiors thanks in no small part to the careful selection of natural surfaces and materials is present throughout, creating a reaffirming constant from room to room. Likewise, the colour schemes – a choice of two – continue the natural and neutral theme and mean every home in St Boulevard provides the kind of backdrop that’s easy to add your own personality to.
A key drawcard for these premium apartments will be the views – some of the best in Melbourne. Their enjoyment is all the more pleasant out on the spacious private balconies that wrap around the apartment exteriors. Outdoor living of this scale in an apartment doesn’t come along often.
Bathrooms have been kept serenely simple. The calming natural palette and materials, present in the large format wall and floor tiling and timber cabinetry, help create hotel quality spaces that we know will be popular. There’s nothing quite like this kind of tranquil start to the day.
St Boulevard will be setting an incredible standard for in-building amenities. Across multiple floors and locations over 2,000sqm of resort-like amenity includes an outdoor pool and lush garden sanctuary that features: health club with gymnasium, heated spa and sauna; private dining with adjoining catering kitchen; outdoor BBQ pods, lounges and bathing pavilions; and a standout 25m heated lap pool.
There really may be no reason to leave the building when you add even further features like the private cinema, games lounge and children’s play area, and The Shakespeare Group have truly considered what modern living is all about. How they have gone about delivering it is nothing short of incredible and showcases their innovative approach.
In a growing development trend, St. Boulevard has seen demand for larger apartments, with some of the spaces being redesigned and amalgamated for a number of owner-occupier buyers.
The location, of course, is renowned. With the best dining, shopping and entertainment that surrounding Albert Park, South Yarra and Prahran have to offer, this once business-minded streetscape is maximising its lifestyle opportunities. Plus the close proximity to the CBD, with a choice of trams on the front door to get you there, make this an easy decision for anyone wanting a world-class home with a short commute.
As the quality, scope and included residential amenity increases along this prime stretch of Melbourne, projects like St Boulevard are defining a completely enviable way of life. And with apartments starting from $431,000, that life could be well within reach.
