Developer 3L Alliance has picked up the highly-coveted ‘Residential High Rise Development’ award at the 2022 Asia Pacific Property Awards for its recently completed Queens Place Tower 1 in Melbourne.
The award was officially presented at the 2022 Asia Pacific Property Awards ceremony held in London on 23 June, 2022. Known as the largest, most prestigious, and widely recognised awards program, the Asia Pacific Property Awards are judged by an independent panel of over 80 industry experts with criteria spanning design, quality, service, innovation, originality, and commitment to sustainability.
2022 marks the 29th year of the Asia Pacific Property Awards, with more than 45 categories and entrants from a range of global regions, including Arabia, Europe, Africa, Canada, Central and South America, the Caribbean, USA, UK and the Asia Pacific.
Completed in January, 2022 by leading global construction company, Multiplex, Queens Place Tower 1 is the first residential tower in 3L Alliance’s $1 billion landmark mixed-use development in Melbourne’s CBD.
Prominently located at 350 Queen Street at the verge of Flagstaff Hill, the development comprises 819 apartments within a tower spanning 80 levels set above a six-level commercial and retail podium. Once complete, Queens Place will be the tallest twin skyscrapers in Australia.
“Queens Place began with a vision to create an authentic site response for one of the most coveted locations in Melbourne’s CBD, and almost five years later, now stands as a compelling architectural statement that many residents are now proud to call home.
3L Alliance is honoured that our vision for Queens Place has been recognized on an international stage – not only for its’ stature and scale, but also for its’ purposeful ground level activation, which has contributed to the distinct local character and lifestyle by introducing vibrant new site links and public open spaces “- Arthur Williams, CEO, 3L Alliance .
Designed by Cox Architecture, Fender Katsalidis, Queens Place features 6,000 square metres of commercial office space, a retail precinct, a public plaza with a laneway, and luxurious lifestyle amenities such as private cinemas, library, poker and mahjong room, private garden terraces, karaoke suite and resident gym.
Queens Place also comprises exclusive double-height amenities on Levels 51 and 52, including a pool, spa, sauna, dining rooms and exclusive resident lounge with views over the Melbourne CBD skyline.
“We congratulate 3L Alliance on achieving this prestigious award. It is testimony to the company’s vision and commitment to delivering a premium, world-class development with Queens Place, and Multiplex is delighted to have brought that vision to life” said Graham Cottam, Regional Managing Director at Multiplex.
The building’s striking aesthetic required meticulous attention to detail, with Multiplex installing several hundred architecturally designed fins, a signature feature of the design.
The distinct curtain wall façade of Queens Place includes over 11,000 custom-made façade panels, while a custom anodised aluminium ‘Lantern’ roof screen on Level 80 provides another unique feature for the precinct.
The main feature lobby entrance contains over 2,000 individual anodised aluminium extrusion light fittings along with crafted Italian marble stone slabs on the walls and columns.
