The Facade Project - 2 Collins St, Melbourne
There is ongoing construction of the scaffolding on Spring St and Collins St.This will involve intermittent noisy drilling and jackhammering. Working hours are from 7 AM to 3 PM. Apologies for the inconvenience.
Stage 2 of the scaffolding is ongoing which concentrates on tower 3 on the collins street end. It will have less impact on our apartment as the builders won’t be directly working next to our apartment. There will still be some noise that travels throughout the building though. This section of the building is the rest of the work and is estimated to be completed by the end of July 2023.
What we love

Stylishly updated and designed by AOA Christopher Peck Architects, youll be staying in style in Melbournes most central and sought-after area. Combining comfort and flawless modern design, this is the ideal choice for a stylish fashionable couple enjoying a weekend (or longer) away.
Chic wooden floors and timber floorboards guide you throughout this sleek studio, from the perfectly efficiently equipped kitchen through the other living spaces. Curved kitchen counters in high-gloss white add an architectural dimension to what could be a simply functional space. A comfortable seating area zones the bedroom area off, providing you with a relaxing living space to curl up with a book or movie, and a cosy nook to retire to in the evening. Fashionable Charcoal-toned herringbone tiles adorn the walk-in shower in the bathroom, continuing the sophistication as you get ready for a night out in the CBD.

Its a picturesque stroll to get some world-famous coffee through the Paris end of this gorgeous neighbourhood. Heritage buildings and upmarket boutiques abound, and the food choices cant be beaten. We recommend Cumulus inc (500 m walk) for all-day dining. Everything here is delicious, but even more than that, its clever. We recommend the City Wine Shop for a beautiful glass of wine and a meal, followed by a cheeky cocktail at the Siglo one of Melbournes best rooftop bars. And all within a 5min walk from this fabulous apartment on the corner of Collins and Spring Street.
If youre visiting in summer, you must check out the pop-up bar, Arbory Afloat on the river, followed by an afternoon wandering around Melbournes charming laneways, finding street art at Hosier Lane and soaking up the pulse of the city.

First of all the apartment is on the 1st floor of an office building and right next to the men's washroom. The building directory has this apartment listed as an architects office. The building is poorly maintained and you literally have to step over street people sleeping on the stairs leading up to the building. Because it's on the first floor you hear everything from people talking on the sidewalk to excessive traffic noise. It is a very busy street and right next to the subway station so its very noisy. After waiting and one hour and half on the steps for someone to let us in we got into the apartment and there was a 1/2 roll of toilet paper and two towels. Called management and emailed twice and the manager eventually brought over toilet paper and two more towels 24 hours later. Everything is cheap obout the place. The couch was filthy, the windows were filthy. Also there is only one window out of four to open and it only opens 25% of the way. It gets stifling hot in the apartment. Management has one cheap fan that sort of works, but when the temperature in the place is in excess of 85 degrees with no air flow......well good luck getting to sleep. (and did I tell you about the traffic and sidewalk noice. Management/owners should turn this apartment back into an office like the rest of the offices on the floor. This is no place for an apartment and definitely no place for elegant one at that. Management was very difficult to deal with. Complained daily. VRBO support was little help.
Lovely property in a great location. Close to MCG and Princes Theatre. Compact apartment but has everything you need for a short stay.
