Since its inception Melbourne’s NewQuay precinct has been the destination for buyers seeking landmark architecture on the edge of the CBD.

Elm & Stone adds to this growing legacy of iconic architecture with an amenity-packed building defined by its selection of contemporary apartments and split-level lofts.

Created by developers MAB, the team behind the whole rejuvenation of the NewQuay area for the past 20 years, Elm & Stone has been designed by award-winning DKO Architecture. It’s a partnership that has already delivered outstanding residential apartment buildings on Melbourne’s waterside.


Elm & Stone is an urban sanctuary, sophisticated and spacious, bringing together the best of inner-city living from around the globe.

The building features a combination of one, two and three bedroom apartments along with larger, one or two bedroom loft style residences, all with a focus on affordability.


Says David Allt-Graham, General Manager of Residential at MAB, “Elm & Stone is one of the first genuine loft developments to be built in Melbourne and definitely a first for Docklands.” 


“We prototyped multiple variations of this design to deliver the height and space that you might find in a converted warehouse, whilst capitalising on the great design benefits, of secure, elevated, north facing, apartment living,” he said.


Colour schemes have been carefully selected to reflect the New York feel of the apartments. Named Soho (dark toned sophistication with black metal detailing), Brooklyn (eggshell blue highlights, striking natural timbers and exposed concrete) and Upper East (light and bright palette, contemporary tones and timber finishes), each of these schemes consists of a unique set of materials that bring interiors to life.


Most apartments feature North-facing windows for maximum natural light, or South-facing for breathtaking sunsets across Melbourne’s harbour.


Love surrounding yourself with greenery? Rich plant life cascades down the building to create a truly lush exterior. And your balcony is designed with built-in planter boxes so you can add foliage, flowers or even your own fresh herb garden.

Maximising your home’s functionality, shared exterior spaces have been designed by landscape architects Oculus and Aspect. These include a zen garden complete with elm trees, ideal for a moment of relaxation or a catchup on your social feeds.


Start your day with a refreshing swim in the pool or a workout in the fully equipped gymnasium. Later, head up to the landscaped outdoor deck for a barbecue with friends — the views to the north past Melbourne Star are worth it.


We’ve seen shared work spaces in apartment buildings before, but Elm & Stone’s library sets a new tone. A beautifully functional environment, it’s perfect for study, working from home or to indulge in some quiet reading time. Likewise, your elegant entrance lobby would put most hotels to shame. Meet friends beneath its lofty ceiling or wait for your cab in style.


Elm & Stone continues MAB’s vision of contemporary living close to the CBD, providing a convenient choice for the increased inner-city young professional. 

A first home buyer’s dream, one bedroom lofts start from $535,000 and two bedrooms from $750,000, whilst one bedroom apartments begin at $384,000 with 2 bedrooms starting at $571,000 and 3 bedrooms from $870,000.
