Royal Elizabeth is located within Melbourne’s ‘knowledge precinct’ on the northern edge of the CBD, adjacent to Melbourne University, the Royal Melbourne Hospital and the new Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre.
The significance of the site allowed PDG to achieve a height of 20 levels. This provided a point of difference for our clients who were looking to buy in the city but were not keen on living in a large high-rise development.
PDG worked with architects Elenberg Fraser, to create a building which would provide the high-quality amenities PDG is renowned for – but within a tower that was home to a smaller community.
The tower was inspired by the quintessentially Australian gum trees lining Royal Parade and nearby Royal Park. Shimmering bronze glazing forms the trunk while perforated green balustrading in various shapes and shades serves as the tree’s foliage.
A full level of lifestyle amenities is located at the building’s canopy level and includes a large, fully equipped gym, a dining room with kitchen facilities and a casual lounge with feature fireplace. A large barbeque terrace with scalloped seating wraps the canopy’s edge, providing exquisite views of the city skyline.
Royal Elizabeth is a unique development that pays tribute to nature while presenting a modern, desirable lifestyle to residents.
