 La Trobe Tower is a magnificent 42-story residential development offering an inner-city lifestyle complete with innovative, state-of-the-art living spaces and world-class architecture influenced by Melbourne’s jazz precinct.

Designed by award winning architects and interior design company ROTHELOWMAN and built by developer LongRiver, La Trobe Tower’s location boasts the ultimate convenience for residents, with a ground floor retail space and Queen Victoria Market, Melbourne Central, the university precinct, Flagstaff Gardens and public transport only a stone’s throw away.

ROTHELOWMAN Senior Associate Belinda Nincevic said, “It was vital that the design considered and enhanced its surrounds whilst also creating a sense of uniqueness, in keeping with Melbourne’s distinctive character.”

“Melbourne’s rich art and music culture influenced the design process,” Belinda said. “The history of music and the local jazz precinct, specifically a tuning fork and piano keys, provided the inspiration for the façade design.”

The 205 luxury one and two bedroom apartments have been impeccably designed with impressive floor-to-ceiling windows in every apartment to reflect and absorb the array of transitional colour and light and boast stunning views over the CBD.

Buyers have the choice of light or dark colour schemes, complimented with warm timber finishes and elegant clean lines. Each apartment benefits from the inclusion of complementary floorboards and integrated fridges. Generous storage is presented via bespoke joinery, echoing the modern aesthetic of the building.

For LongRiver managing director Andrew Yu, the aim is to offer innovative, high-quality real estate that delivers both living pleasure and value growth.

“La Trobe Tower is in a class of its own due to its location, exceptional quality and well-thought-out design,” Andrew said. “La Trobe tower is already striking the right note with buyers with 70% of apartments already secured.”

La Trobe Tower includes a beautifully appointed communal terrace and common area on level 15, with areas for both social interaction and private retreat.

The common areas include provisions of a lounge, outdoor terrace, dining areas, kitchenette and private cinema. There is also an enclosed winter garden equipped with weather protection to ensure residents can use the space year-round.

The apartments range in size from 40 sqm to 55.5 sqm and are priced from $351,000 to $530,000, with one penthouse worth $2.5 million.

Completion of the development is expected in early 2016.
