The centrepiece of privilege
A sophisticated new arrival on Melbourne's eastern skyline, East Central Tower is a modern day sanctuary and exclusive lifestyle destination designed by Melbourne's leading architects of skyrise living, Fender Katsalidis. At an elevated address, overlooking a busy urban centre below, architecture is a symbolic reference of the neighbourhood's heritage; the orchards of its past and its historic tree-lined avenues.
Set beneath an elegant tower, the 6 level podium is a lively presence, connecting to the streetscape with a series of premium retail and commercial spaces and two formal entries for residents. Its carefully crafted form mimics the earth, out of which the 'tree' of the tower grows, anchoring the design while dramatically separating the podium from the 24 storey residential tower above. Echoing the corrugated, tree-lined ridges prevalent across the local landscape, the top of the podium features an external garden bordering a wealth of social and wellbeing amenity to rival a world class hotel. Soaring above, the tower is articulated by a series of slender ribs, thinning as they spread up from the base like the limbs of a tree. The branch-like veil wraps around the façade to deliver a contemporary lifestyle statement that will resonate as a modern lifestyle icon for generations to come.
Enter an urban paradise within, where endless options to entertain or be entertained are a set a across a lavishly designed inner sanctum.
Presiding across the entire top level of the podium, a rich social environment offers places to connect and gather with friends. Honed marbled surfaces, gentle wood grains, crafted chevron timberwork, bronzed metal accents, knotted fibres and touches of the surrounding natural landscape palette, come together in a multi-sensory space that exudes vitality and warmth.
Exquisitely detailed club lounges and indulgent spaces for private dinner parties extend your entertaining options. Choose the landscaped terraces for balmy summer nights or cosy indoor retreats with open fireplaces for when the weather cools down. A library, children's play spaces, home theatre and games room turn stay-at-home days into a gold class experience. Breathe, soak, plunge and relax in a resort style centre for wellbeing featuring pool, sauna and sun decks, yoga studio and fully equipped gymnasium.
