A perfectly balanced life at 181 Fitzroy Street St Kilda

Builder Developer, Pace Development Group, have just announced a significant new residential development to add a their collection of flagship projects. 181 Fitzroy Street St Kilda is positioned directly opposite the Junction Oval with sweeping views across Albert Park Lake parkland down to Port Philip Bay and across to Melbourne’s CBD cityscape.

Ideally located to leverage the St Kilda’s bohemian urbanity with luscious parkland, 181 Fitzroy Street has been designed by leading contemporary architects SJB. Set to make an impressive new addition to Fitzroy Street, standing at ten storeys tall and incorporating 160 spacious apartments, 181 will be a perfectly balanced mix of large scaled one, two and three bedroom apartments. Designed to gracefully recede from the street, levels 1-6 will reach out to the property's boundary, while levels 8 and 9 will be set back to take full advantage of the spectacular and unparalleled views.

SJB Architects have conceived a ‘fine grained’ contemporary building façade, which draws on Art Deco seaside influences, while maximising floor templates and views. The expert hand of Sue Carr of Carr Design is evident in the development's sophisticated selection of finishes and fixtures. Her impeccable eye will touch upon every internal element at 181 Fitzroy Street, bringing a level of refinement to the project, reminiscent of the finest contemporary European hotels.

The interiors are immaculately conceived and offer either a dark/light and then premium or pinnacle fit-out and colour schemes. Located on level 9, the $4.8m dollar penthouse has already been snapped up by an astute local buyer. However level ten is where it gets very interesting as 181 Fitzroy Street will boast an infinity edge pool, a pool with definitely the best view in Melbourne with sightlines across to the bay and over the green swathes of Albert Park Lake to Melbourne’s CBD.

This exclusive rooftop deck, just beneath the building's crown, is where residents will relax and enjoy the exclusive recreational facilities, while the nearby Albert Park Lake offers world-class sporting and recreational facilities for rowing, sailing, tennis and golfing with a 5km lakeside walking track. Due to officially launch in early May 2015, 181 Fitzroy Street will offer perfectly balanced living; a balance between the bay and city, street life and high life. From Luna Park, to Café di Stasio, 181 Fitzroy Street is superbly poised to take advantage of the unique culture and convenience of bohemian, yet sophisticated St Kilda.
