Marked as Melbourne’s flagship hotel-branded residences harbouring never before seen luxury inclusions, it’s no wonder Seafarers by Riverlee has been awarded the 2020 Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) Victoria Award for Design Excellence

The picturesque and historic site along the Yarra River and its landmark Goods Shed will be reimagined into a culturally vibrant riverside precinct and home to Australia’s first 1 Hotel, public lounge and dining arcade.

“Branded residences across the globe are positioned as the most sought after homes for their unrivalled location, security, luxury amenity and high assurance of quality. In partnership with 1 Hotels and Homes, we’ve curated the residences and lifestyle at Seafarers to be unlike anything Melbourne has ever seen before,” explains David Lee, Development Director at Riverlee.


Riverlee, in collaboration with Fender Katsalidis, Carr Design, ODO and Oculus, offer a thoughtfully effortless lifestyle at Seafarers.

As a statement of true luxury apartment living, the limited collection of 123 homes present immaculate interiors, high-end inclusions and exclusive access to the 5-star amenities at the adjacent 1 Hotel Melbourne. In a true sign of unparalleled excellence, Seafarers’ offerings go beyond the traditional luxury apartment amenities. In addition to the luxurious hotel swimming pools and fitness facilities. Seafarers residents will also have access to a day spa operated by an international spa brand, retail and hospitality selections as well as 24-hour concierge and bellman services.

Those calling Seafarers home will find themselves amongst an unrivalled collection of amenities at their disposal. A la carte services will be available on demand via a contactless portal - offerings will include private catering, organic pantry stocking and ongoing personal shopping services. These services will also extend to botanical care, pet services, dry-cleaning, pharmacy and in-room dining.

The 500sqm onsite resident-exclusive retreat offers bookable private dining rooms, lounges and a library ideal for hosting and entertaining large groups. The spectacular rooftop garden featuring barbecue and outdoor dining facilities can also be used as an extension of your home, an outdoor workspace or simply somewhere with serene views to unwind.


From the river, Seafarers’ faceted facade does more than create a striking urban presence. The development harbours extremely generous floor plans crafted by Carr Design. Inside, each home has been meticulously planned to maximise natural light, external views and foster a deeper connection to its unique riverfront setting.

The fully integrated kitchens have been designed and crafted in Italy by the renowned Snaidero. Equipped with high-end Gaggenau and Eurocave appliances as well as precision engineered porcelain fronted joinery, Seafarers’ kitchens offer elegance, practicality and durability at the heart of each home.

While residents will have everything they could possibly need at their fingertips, they will also be a quick stroll away from the  Melbourne City and its vibrant laneways, South Wharf shopping precinct, Crown Yarra Promenade and Southgate Arts precinct

The 2 and 3 bedroom residences at Seafarers represent the final opportunity to experience the absolute height of riverfront living in the heart of Melbourne. Park and City view apartments are priced from $1.205m and Riverfront apartments start at $1.9m. For more information on the effortless luxury on offer at Seafarers, click here.
