T5 (YE5)

Yarra’s Edge

Architect: Wood Marsh

Built: 2004


Spanning over 40 stories and appearing impossibly thin from some angles, T5 is undoubtedly one of the best looking towers in Melbourne. With a diamond shaped exterior, and an inner form of glass displaying a bronze torso that culminates in a distinctive crown, the building takes design to a new level.


The striking design and classic urban sophistication is reflected throughout the interior. Starting on the ground with the impressive foyer the design aesthetic continues throughout the tower’s 191 apartments and culminates at the spectacular penthouses.


T5 has been the subject of praise from both passers by and design luminaries. It recently received the 2005 Urban Development Institute of Australia Award and was also awarded winner of the 2005 Multi Residential Category at the Victorian Royal Australian Institute of Architects Awards.

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”. Perhaps the most striking example of this juxtaposition between old and new is the Coops Shot...
