A striking new contribution to 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, architecture brings together the old and the new, drawing inspiration from the precinct’s lush canopies and historic tree-lined avenues, then re-imagining form and context to deliver a contemporary lifestyle statement that will resonate as a modern lifestyle icon for generations to come. The 6 level podium is a vibrant presence, connecting to the streetscape with a series of premium retail and commercial spaces. It’s simply 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. At the top level of the podium, a dedicated social space for residents features a myriad of amenities to rival a world class hotel. Soaring above, the tower rises, articulated by a series of slender ribs, thinning as they spread and weave like the webbed branches of a tree, to create a veil that wraps the facade.
Enter an urban paradise within, where endless options to entertain or be entertained are set 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 greenery 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.
