Multiplex has completed stage one of the $2.8 billion Melbourne Square precinct, including two towers that measure in at 236.7 metres and 184.3 metres tall.
Designed by COX Architecture, the towers include 1054 apartments, a sauna, yoga studio, music room, comprehensive gyms, golf simulator, cinema, private dining areas and kitchen facilities, as well as further communal spaces for games including Mahjong, table tennis and billiards.
Construction at Melbourne Square began in 2017 and has delivered a 3,745 square metre Taylor Cullity Lethlean-designed public park, Victoria’s first double-storey Woolworths supermarket and an 87-place childcare facility.
OSK Property Sales and Marketing Director Scott Jessop said he was thrilled with how well Melbourne Square has resonated with purchasers in the off-the-plan market, as well as the positive impact the project has already had on the community.
“It has been an incredibly exciting journey to see our vision for Melbourne Square come to life over the past four years. While last year had its challenges, it was immensely rewarding to see our parkland and Woolworths supermarket playing a supporting role for the public during a time of uncertainty. The amount of visitation they have both seen in a short timeframe is quite amazing,” Jessop said.

“Melbourne Square aims to deliver an elevated lifestyle experience for residents while championing the concept of a two-minute neighbourhood. Further to this, we have been thrilled to watch how seamlessly the project has anchored itself in the broader Southbank community.”
COX Architecture director Paul Curry said stage one of Melbourne Square formed a key component in the growing footprint of the City of Melbourne and will comprise a total of six towers when fully completed including a workplace tower, luxury hotel and retail precinct.
“The Melbourne Square masterplan is an exciting public realm focused addition to the city’s urban fabric,” said Mr Curry.
“It is fantastic to see the project creating value for the broader precinct and it will continue to generate public and economic benefits throughout its development journey.”
