ROCK star glam is the look those be­hind a lux­ury South Yarra apart­ment tower have gone for. And they’ve pulled it off in style. A gold spi­ral stair­case and soar­ing ceil­ings set the scene in the spec­tac­u­lar lobby of the $80 mil­lion, 19-storey Clare­mont Manor tower. If first im­pres­sions aren’t enough, the devel­op­ment also boasts five-star ho­tel style com­mu­nal fa­cil­i­ties, in­clud­ing a lap pool, gym and res­i­dents’ club with lounge, func­tion and theatre rooms. There’s also a restau­rant and in­de­pen­dent gro­cer at the foot of the build­ing, which is near­ing com­ple­tion at 3-7 Clare­mont St. The Poly South­link project, de­signed by award-win­ning Bird de la Coeur Ar­chi­tects, fea­tures 285 apart­ments in a mix of one-, two-, three- and fourbed­room de­signs, plus five of­fice suites and three re­tail spa­ces.

The lat­est apart­ment re­lease, known as the Cre­ated Col­lec­tion, of­fers 35 fully fur­nished apart­ments, which will be ready for buy­ers to move into next month.

There will be 18 one-bed­room de­signs mea­sur­ing 40sq m and 17 twobed­room de­signs of 81sq m in size. Ad­di­tional out­door spa­ces range from 5sq m to 57sq m.

Floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows, large liv­ing ar­eas, gal­ley-style kitchens with ad­ja­cent meals ar­eas and a mono­chrome in­te­rior colour pal­ette to match the ex­te­rior of the build­ing are among the apart­ment high­lights.

Bird de la Coeur di­rec­tor Neil de la Coeur said the fo­cus was on cre­at­ing a com­plete life­style for res­i­dents.

“Mak­ing the build­ing a city within a city was a chal­lenge, hav­ing a su­per­mar­ket, restau­rant, me­dia lounge and five-star recre­ational fa­cil­i­ties in ad­di­tion to the apart­ments,” he said.

“We were able to cre­ate a de­sign that al­lowed all the el­e­ments to be suc­cess­fully in­te­grated and ‘speak­ing’ to each other, and we are de­lighted with the re­sult.”

Clare­mont Manor is less than 150m from South Yarra train sta­tion, 200m from Toorak Rd trams and sur­rounded by cafes, restau­rants, bars and shops,

Poly South­link man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Yuan Tao said great value was an­other at­trac­tion.

“It has the ap­peal of be­ing the best value for apart­ments in South Yarra and there is no wait­ing — own­ers can move in be­fore Christ­mas and be part of the ac­tion,” Mr Yuan said.

Cre­ated Col­lec­tion prices range from $384,000 to $418,00 for onebed­room apart­ments and $850,000 to $886,000 for two-bed­room de­signs.
