"Melbourne Square" Southbank reaches new heights

  • Melbourne’s largest city precinct project Melbourne Square reaches its topping out milestone on its first two towers
  • To support Victorians’ focus on wellness it also unveils the city’s first wellness-enabled lifestyle apartments with technology to make indoor environments healthier
  • A vibrant retail precinct including Victoria’s only double-storey Woolworths is also to open in at Melbourne Square progressively from the end of the year.

Developer OSK Property has unveiled Melbourne’s first wellness-enabled lifestyle apartments as it marks the topping out milestone of its first two towers at Melbourne Square.

The city’s largest new precinct under development, Southbank’s Melbourne Square is now a recognisable landmark on the skyline, with its first two towers topping out at 236.7 metres and 184.3 metres respectively after three years of construction by Multiplex.

The topping out comes as the finishing touches are being placed on the precinct’s latest completed apartments, featuring interiors by Carr Design, along with its village-style shopping centre comprising Victoria’s first double-storey supermarket as well as a range of new eateries.

Melbourne Square Sales and Marketing Director Scott Jessop said the apartments would be the first in Victoria to incorporate world-first wellness technology that aims to make spaces healthier places to live.

New apartments at Melbourne Square will feature an integrated wellness ecosystem by Delos, which controls the quality of air, water and light in apartments to improve their health.

This includes air quality sensors and high end HEPA air filtration systems that detect and remove impurities like pollen, dust and smoke, water purifiers that reduce levels of chlorine, heavy metals and particulates, and smart lighting that mimics daylight patterns in order improve daytime performance and sleep cycles.

The wellness technology will benefit allergy sufferers and asthmatics in particular and is part of an intention to deliver a precinct that responds to people’s needs. The wellness apartments sit within a considered realm that delivers residents benefits across the wellness spectrum including:

  • Vitality provided by extensive amenity incorporating multiple pools, gyms, golf simulator and yoga space
  • Social connection through the precinct’s large public park, dining rooms, resident lounges
  • Health through its curated village-style food precinct including Woolworths

“Since the launch in 2017, it is incredibly satisfying to see Melbourne Square occupy its place on the Melbourne skyline,” said Mr Jessop.

“Precincts like Melbourne Square can play a role in the health of our communities, providing connection opportunities and important amenity. Buildings are also a critical tool in health and wellbeing, as Delos’ 10 years of scientific research has found.

“To be able to offer apartments fitted with science-backed technology that improves the internal environment is a game-changer that fits with our vision to create an integrated wellness precinct here.”
