Surrounded by the picturesque bay and glittering city skyline, St Kilda is an eclectic melting pot of culture, colour and character.

It’s long been referred to as Melbourne’s bohemian heart, known for its laid-back lifestyle, filled with hip cafes, shops and entertainment options.

When you think about it, there are few suburbs that could make Luna Park’s giant mouth look like part of the furniture.

It’s little surprise so many people want to live within its eclectic confines, which is why buyers are flocking to snap up an apartment in a new development on Carlisle Street. 

Designed by leading architects and interior designs SJB, ‘Saint’ blends modern sophistication with the urban cool St Kilda is renowned for: think a striking grey brick facade, meshed with thick, black steel and hints of metallic bronze, topped off with overflowing gardens from the communal rooftop.

Buyers can take their pick of either a one, two or three bedroom dwelling in the 51-apartment complex, or one of the four luxurious townhouses, perfect for those looking for a little bit more space, but also want to be involved within the communal aspect of apartment-living.


“That mix is pretty unusual for St Kilda,” explains CBRE’s Managing Director of Residential Projects Andrew Leoncelli.

“The developer [DCT Development Group] should get a lot of credit for bringing a mix of housing typology, instead of just maxing out the amount of apartments. They have gone for something bigger and better.”

Shared areas such as the rooftop garden will transport you a million miles away from inner-city Melbourne, into a lush, tropical oasis to unwind and relax.


The open-plan living, kitchen and dining areas connect through to private courtyards and balconies, creating the perfect entertainment space.

There is the option to choose from two distinct colour palettes, either light, earthy tones with pale timber cabinetry, or a moody scheme with black appliances, white cabinetry and dark grey benchtops.

The bathrooms can be customised too, it’s little touches like these that help transform a house into a home you truly feel comfortable in.

Meanwhile, the very best of St Kilda is within walking distance. 


This includes the vibrant Acland Street precinct, Luna Park, bayside restaurants, St Kilda beach, the nightlife and restaurants along Fitzroy Street and the weekly markets that make this buzzing hub a destination. 

“We did ‘The Carlisle’, just four doors up, and they sold out, so we know the market loves this location. It’s well connected to East St Kilda and the heart of St Kilda, and the quality of the architecture and interior design is exceptional,” concludes Mr Leoncelli.

Construction is scheduled to begin later this year.
