Queens Place Aims To Create ‘Melbourne In Melbourne’

Queens Place, the city’s new landmark $1-billion-dollar project from developer 3L Alliance, is destined to be the most liveable address in the world’s most liveable city.

A twin-tower, master-planned vertical community, Queens Place will capture the true essence of the city with laneway shopping experiences, dining opportunities, neighbourhood services and plentiful open space; essentially creating a ‘Melbourne within Melbourne’.

From its elevated position on the verge of Flagstaff Hill, Melbourne’s highest point, the soaring, distinctive forms of its twin towers are set to become a prominent feature on the CBD skyline.

Inspired by Melbourne’s myriad alleys, and much-loved institutions like the historic Block and Royal Arcades, Queens Place is criss-crossed at ground level by a network of intimately scaled laneways.

“We have deliberately set out to create an exemplar project that delivers unrivalled design and community outcomes,” says 3L Alliance General Manager Gavin Boyd.

Designed in collaboration by Cox Architecture, Fender Katsalidis Architects and Hecker Guthrie – Melbourne firms of international repute – Queens Place is a residential opportunity above and beyond anything yet seen in this city.

“Find the best people, and bring them together. That’s the 3L Alliance philosophy, and how we intend to achieve the best outcome for Melbourne, and all those who will live, work or visit Queens Place,” says Boyd.

The architecture of Queens Place weaves the city’s past, present and future into a striking, tri-form composition that succeeds at every level and from every vantage point.

As they rise, the towers recline away from each other, creating a signature asymmetry both poetic in its elegance, and practical in its maximising of view opportunities, light and privacy for residents of upper levels.

Juxtaposing flowing curves and chamfered edges, these dynamic forms are expressed through contrasting yet complementary materials—the podium layers anchoring the site with their earthy tones and exposed stonework; the tower elements with their silver curtain wall glazing, seemingly floating above.

A final flourish transforms the topmost two levels of each tower into monumental fluted glass lanterns; crowning elements, whose bronze-coloured glow will be visible to all against the night sky of the city.

In addition to offering one, two and three-bedroom apartments in a range of floorplans, Queens Place offers a variety of living options, finish levels, amenity and view opportunities.

Be it for exercise, entertaining or entertainment, a quiet escape, or to partake in your favourite indulgence, the level of communal amenities is above and beyond that of any residential development in Melbourne’s history.

Within the podium alone, there is a pool and spa, private dining rooms and caterer’s kitchens, games rooms, private cinemas, a library, poker and mah jong room, a private garden terrace, karaoke suite, and even a cigar bar.

Setting the benchmark with their meticulous planning, fine craftsmanship and quality appliances, the apartments above in Tower One place emphasis on styling, space, comfort and luxury.

From the front door to the furthermost corner, each square centimetre of the Queens Place apartments will be crafted to create a home both familiar and welcoming, but like the architectural envelope from which it draws its inspiration, each will be deeply and unmistakeably individual.

Reaching new heights on floors 69 to 78, the expansive and sublimely appointed ‘Queens Residences’ will reward owners with the ultimate in urban sophistication across a selection of penthouses and sub penthouses.

Residents can also take advantage of the many convenient services on offer, including a concierge, business centre, meeting room, and valet parking, to name a few.

With its refined, beautifully realised Tower One apartments, central business district address, and unique urban village setting, Queens Place offers a Melbourne lifestyle beyond compare.

The one, two and three-bedroom apartments range from 45 to 168 square metres, with prices starting at $449,000.
