Emerald is a striking architectural building in one of Melbourne’s most cherished locations. At the edge of the old Emerald Hill, between the Botanical Gardens and Albert Park Lake, this mixed-use development incorporates 290 Apartments, along with commercial and retail offerings.
Challenging at the planning and design stage, Emerald needed careful design to ensure no overshadowing of neighbouring Domain Tower would occur. In a feat of architectural design and engineering, Emerald achieves an organic curved fluidity in a sea of rectilinear buildings, with emerald-toned glazed ribbons nodding to the name.
Emerald needed the intellect of bringing together the technical, design and commercial side of development. That’s as much about finding financial solutions as it is about creating spaces that people want to live in, and to do it in a way that’s viable.
