Queens Place has reached the finish line on the first tower. Set to be the tallest double tower in Australia, Queens Place reconnects a highly visible urban site with granular community connectivity and street-level connections.
The $235 million project is a joint venture of Fender Katsalidis and Cox Architecture, with the winning design concept from the competition winner 3L Alliance. Located adjacent to Queen Victoria Market precinct and Flagstaff Gardens, One Queens Place tower delivers an elegant, city-scaled residence that authentically responds to its site’s conditions and the many needs of its residents.
The multi-level podium enhances the landplane, providing new connections within and enhancing the public realm of the Queen Victoria Market precinct. Intended to have diverse uses, the five-level podium includes retail, business spaces, and childcare.
Contrasting but complimentary materials express the form of the podium and the tower. In distinction with the smooth silver tower, a highly articulated podium is armoured by curved slats, while plantings weave together external terraces. The earthy hues and exposed stonework make for a uniquely Melbourne ground-level experience.
