Developer Little Projects has received approval for a flagship $300 million twin-tower apartment development at Fishermans Bend.
The development will be located at a site the developer purchased for $18.5 million at 85 Lorimer Street, South Wharf in February 2014.
The project will feature 940 contemporary one, two and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses designed by leading architecture practice Elenberg Fraser.
Elenberg Fraser Director Callum Fraser said he was delighted to be working with Little Projects and that the building, now in its third design phase, would define the entrance to the Lormier precinct of Fishermans Bend.
Little Projects Managing Director Michael Fox said the project would transform multi-residential living.
“The re-submission of our plans for the South Wharf site has given us the ability to design a development that will contribute to Melbourne’s dynamic skyline,” Mr Fox said.
“We’ve identified South Wharf as a key area with potential for growth, as it is evident that Melburnians enjoy living on the fringe of the CBD, with immediate access to the best cultural and lifestyle precincts, including Melbourne’s new financial district, which is only 1km away.
“Through this project, and its thoughtful design considerations, the team at Elenberg Fraser and Little Projects has a unique opportunity and responsibility to shape and elevate the liveability of this city for future generations.”
The South Wharf development follows Little Projects’ sell out development Ilk and Central in South Yarra, the multi award-winning Tip Top Brunswick East and its recently acquired Bridge Road, Richmond and Dairy Bell, Malvern East sites.
