Construction is complete at MY80, a 55-level mixed use tower in Melbourne’s CBD, with the first residents moving in.
With 487 dwellings, MY80 offers residents a range of lifestyle services catering to a sophisticated set of high-rise dwellers seeking communal spaces and facilities not found in older buildings. These include a lounge and terrace, residents dining area, swimming pool and sauna, cinema and business centre on level 1, and a rooftop bar and terrace with impressive views (level 53). The apartments are structured to be affordable, with the dual communal areas providing generous specialised spaces – such as the dining room with designer kitchen for entertaining on a large scale – that complement private apartment living.
The drive for more lifestyle facilities in part arises by the pressure on apartment sizes from construction and land costs. High design quality means that smaller spaces can still excel. At MY80, every last square metre is maximised from a design point of view, and what is on offer within the tower is complementary to what’s available locally.
At ground level are two retail spaces– one at the A’Beckett Street corner and one to the Elizabeth Street frontage.
MY80 a mammoth success for PDS Group
