Freshwater Place



Architects: Bates Smart

Stage 1, Towers 1 and 2 were completed in 2005.


Freshwater Place is a high-rise mixed-use complex on the southern bank of the Yarra River between southgate and Crown Casino in Southbank. The complex currently consists of three buildings:


Freshwater Place North at 1 Queensbridge Square, a 62 level residential skyscraper and at 205m tall incorporates a 10 level residential podium and retail village.


Freshwater Place Commercial Tower anchored by PricewaterhouseCoopers at 2 Southbank Boulevard, a 38 level tower of approximately 55,000m of office accommodation.


Twenty8 Freshwater Place at 28 Freshwater Place is a twenty five level office tower.


The proposed Freshwater Tower 4, a 33 level office tower may not go ahead because the owner Australand, is looking to sell this development site.


An early render of the project had the third south tower as another residential tower the same height as Freshwater Place North.

Melbourne’s architectural landscape is a wonderful juxtaposition of modern and Victorian architecture. Although the CBD has been peppered with many skyscrapers, its historical structures have won Melbourne the title of “Australia’s most European city”.
