Multiplex Completes Paragon Tower in Melbourne
Premier construction company Multiplex has completed Beulah’s AUD 200 million 48-level luxury residential apartment tower Paragon, located at 318 Queen Street in Melbourne’s CBD. Designed by high-profile architects Fender Katsalidis, the high-rise tower stands some 167 metres above street level and comprises 227 apartments in a range of one, two and three-bedroom configurations. Notable features of Paragon include premium communal facilities and amenities including a lounge and private theatre, as well as a library, bar and exclusive dining areas. Residents also have access to a luxurious 15 metre lap pool, spa and gymnasium and Australia’s first elevated indoor forest, and the car park boasts an automated car stacker.
Luxury features of the apartments include floor-to-ceiling windows designed to capture natural light and deliver panoramic views of Melbourne. Designer finishes such as stylish timber floorboards and brushed metal surfaces are used throughout with some floorplans including an ensuite, study and private balcony.
Paragon has achieved a 5 Star Greenstar rating, with ESD features including a rainwater harvesting system, the largest vertical installation of photovoltaic solar panels in Australia, and shared e-bikes. Biophilic design connects Paragon residents with the natural environment through the three-level ‘urban forest’ comprising green walls, mature trees and water features designed by Paul Bangay, widely regarded as the foremost garden designer in Australia today.
