A proposed “super-prime” residential offering in Melbourne will be embraced by local and international buyers, according to the team charged with transforming the plan into a reality.
One Queensbridge is “set to be one of the most luxurious residential offerings in Australia to date”, according to Knight Frank, which, along with Crown Resorts and Schiavello, is bringing the “super-prime” development to the market.
The planned One Queensbridge offering, if approved, will be a vertical neighbourhood sitting atop a six-star, 388-room Crown hotel.
It will feature a rooftop bar and dining area, a full suite of resort facilities and a pedestrian bridge to the Crown Melbourne complex.
According to Knight Frank's director of sales and marketing for One Queensbridge, Erin van Tuil, the planned development is groundbreaking for Australia and will be the most prestigious residential offering available in the country if it makes it to market.
“One Queensbridge will offer buyers an opportunity to purchase a truly exceptional apartment, built to global standards of excellence. Given the lack of supply of prime and super-prime apartments in Sydney and Melbourne, we are very confident the development will be embraced by buyers both locally and internationally,” she said.
Crown Resorts’ Todd Nisbet said the development would be the “perfect amalgam of residence and permanent holiday – a true expression of resort lifestyle with the world’s most liveable city in your backyard”.
The apartments at One Queensbridge were designed by award-winning British architects WilkinsonEyre, who have worked on projects including King’s Cross Gasholders, Battersea Power Station in London, and Gardens by the Bay in Singapore.
