For anyone with children intending to study in Melbourne in 2019, or looking for a super CBD apartment investment, we have come up with what we think is the best! And the time is NOW perfect. 

This is a rarely found almost COMPLETED apartment complex a short WALK to the University of Melbourne and RMIT, with great designs, good finishes, and amazing facilities, in the best part of the Melbourne CBD, where dwindling supply and project cancellations, as well as new height limits have dramatically curtailed future supply.

Conservatory’s facilities triumphs other developments, with expansive communal recreation and entertaining areas layered in three levels as the tower ascends. Residents will enjoy The Victorian Terrace, The Royal Banquet and The Carlton Skydeck with breathtaking views over the Carlton Garden and city skyline as the backdrop.
