The "Aurora"

3,197sqm site opposite Melbourne Central which currently serves as a car park.

The proposal essentially consists of two concave, U-shaped towers back to back. The highly articulated tower is described as “a unique, curvilinear design response utilising a cross-style layout with undulating setbacks to each site boundary.

The cross-style layout limits wind impacts and facilitates angled view lines from apartments while also limiting overlooking opportunities to surrounding development.”

Given the development’s girth and sheer number of dwellings, it’s impressive that all apartment habitable rooms will receive direct daylight and natural ventilation in this targeted 4 star Green Star rated proposal
