Marriott is bringing five-star luxury

28 Feb 2018

Marriott is bringing five-star luxury Image

A stunning infinity pool boasting views of Melbourne’s skyline and its own bar and dining zone will be the crowning glory of a bold new residential address in Docklands.

The ambitious vision of local company Capital Alliance, The Docklands will feature 100 apartments nestled amid the five-star luxury of the first Marriott hotel to be built in Australia in 20 years.

Designed by DKO Architecture, The Docklands comprises two interlinked scultpural petal-shaped towers of 17 levels each that intersect with a vertical layer of greenery providing a lush privacy screen between the apartments.

Crowning this is a 28-metre infinity edge swimming pool on level 15 that will be open to the public, boasting 200 degree views that can be admired from the water, or over a drink or bite at the accompany bar.

The building’s curved form will also be accentuated at night with elegant subtle exterior lighting.

Located above the District Docklands shopping centre on Waterfront Way, The Docklands aims to offer a New York Fifth Avenue style of living, whereby apartment sizes are large – perfect for families – building services are abundant and design second to none.

Much like Fifth Avenue, residents will importantly live amid a thriving shopping district as District Docklands upscales to become home to its own cinema and retailers such as H&M.

Capital Alliance founder and chief executive Mohan Du said The Docklands would be a landmark for the precinct: “The Docklands will draw tourists both internationally and locally, offering a Marina Bay Sands style experience atop our city.”

“We hope that being able to call this destinational address a home, and live like a five-star hotel guest 365-days of the year, is a proposition many will leap at. The Docklands offers a truly unique opportunity to live a lifestyle deserving of Melbourne’s Most Liveable City in the World title.”

The $250 million project takes the trend towards hotel resort living up a notch with residents being able to tap into the facilities and conveniences of the 200-room Marriott hotel, which features its own gym and function spaces.

Construction is scheduled to begin next year with completion anticipated by 2020.
