The signature dual towers of Marco Melbourne recently reached completion, creating a prominent presence on Melbourne’s skyline and a new residential address within the heart of Melbourne. The complex, by Golden Sunrise Developments, offers a high level of luxury in its prime Southbank location.
Project Architect Jacqueline Loh of the Buchan Group said the design capitalizes on the exclusive site. “Marco Melbourne offers easy access to a plethora of dining, entertainment, leisure, and lifestyle opportunities in the midst of the world’s most livable city. The design responds by providing breathtaking views, quality living spaces, and luxury amenities worthy of the surrounds.”
The 37- and 34-story towers rise above a common podium and accommodate 433 luxury apartments in a range of configurations. Each balcony has been oriented to take advantage of stunning views across the CBD, the Botanical Gardens and Arts Precinct, and to Port Phillip Bay.
The podium offers exclusive access to residents who benefit from an array of first class service, leisure, and entertainment spaces overlooking the city. All residents enjoy access to a pool, gym, private dining room, and cinema, adding to the exclusivity of the building and creating an opportunity to socialize.
“The high-quality amenities were designed to not only create a sense of opulence, but as important social spaces to foster a sense of community amongst the residents,” said Loh.
Buchan’s interior vision for the development captures the style and prestige of a fine hotel with an expansive grand entry lobby featuring marble floors and a sandblasted art pattern glass feature wall. Contemporary apartments are defined by dramatic angles combined with polished white walls and full height clear glass windows.
