Construction is underway at Riverlee’s Seafarers mixed-use precinct located in the heart of Melbourne’s Northbank Docklands. The direct waterfront development combines residential, commercial, hotel and entertainment facilities to create a unique and exciting project for the city.
Seafarers Docklands covers a total area of approximately 2.8 hectares and is situated on the Yarra River, providing stunning views of the city skyline and the water. Developed by prolific development firm Riverlee, the development consists of six buildings, including three residential towers, a hotel, a commercial office building, new park and a retail and entertainment complex. With Riverlee’s Seafarers under construction, Melbourne’s Docklands precinct will gain a new addition to the evolving urban renewal area.
The three residential towers are known as Seafarers Residences and provide luxurious and spacious living options. Designed by Nonda Katsalidis, the towers are designed to maximize the views of the surrounding area, with floor-to-ceiling windows and large balconies. The apartments consist of 113 options, ranging from one to four bedrooms, providing a variety of options for different lifestyles and needs. The towers also include a range of amenities such as a pool, gym, cinema, and private dining and entertaining spaces.
The hotel, 1 Hotel & Homes from SH Hotels & Resorts, will be a five-star hotel that offers luxurious accommodation and world-class facilities. Featuring 294 guest rooms and suites, all of which will be elegantly designed and feature modern amenities, the hotel will also include a restaurant, bar, rooftop pool, and fitness centre.
The commercial office building, known as Seafarers House, provides state-of-the-art office space for businesses looking to operate in a prime location. The building has 14 levels of office space and includes a range of amenities such as a communal rooftop terrace and meeting rooms.
Furthermore, the ground floor retail and entertainment complex, known as Seafarers Place, will be a vibrant hub of activity that includes a range of shops, restaurants, and bars. The complex is designed to provide a lively and exciting atmosphere, with plenty of spaces for people to relax and socialize. It also includes a public park and a marina, providing easy access to the water.
The Seafarers Docklands development is also aiming for a strong commitment to sustainability with solar panels, rainwater harvesting, and green roofs. The new Seafarers Rest parklands also prioritizes pedestrian and cyclist access, with plenty of bike parking and walking paths throughout the precinct.
Construction has begun onsite, with Icon Constructions heading up the large-scale build.
“We are honoured to be working with Riverlee and to be a part of delivering a city-defining project like Seafarers. We look forward to bringing Seafarers to life and working on this historic location on the riverfront.” said Evan Byrne, Icon CEO.
