Melbourne’s tallest building via Cavan

The tallest residential building in Melbourne’s CBD is under construction and Cavan-born developer Tony Brady is behind the project.

The 72-level Vision building will be 224 metres high and the penthouse apartments are on the market for $3.5 million. And the development will have an end value of $400 million.

“We are developer builders. We just bought the site, designed the apartments, sold them and are now building it,” Mr Brady said.

“It started about two months ago the building of it … the build will be about two and a half years.

“They are nearly all sold, 85 per cent sold.”

The building is at 500 Elizabeth Street across from the Queen Victoria Market and is currently at the earthworks stage.

Mr Brady is the founder of the Brady Property Group and he has worked in Melbourne since he arrived in Australia in the ‘70s. Brady Construction has been appointed the builders of the Vision project.

On the tenth floor of the building residents will be able to enjoy a pool, gymnasium and spa. Special function rooms will also be able to be transformed into entertainment areas with expansive outdoor balconies. A private cinema for the residents is also another added attraction.

“The end result will enable Vision residents to live, work and place within the confines of the building. Now that’s a real point of difference,” Brady Property Group sales manager Daniel Brady said.

The Vision building is close to restaurants and theatres and is also close to public transport. And the team have also taken on a top interior design company.

“We also wanted to create an iconic design ensuring Vision will retain true visual relevance for decades to come,” the sales manager added.

“Then we selected Melbourne’s own internationally acclaimed interior designers Hecker Guthrie to translate our vision for what the genuine ‘feel’ of the apartments will offer to residents.”

Victorian Planning Minister Matthew Guy recently acknowledged the contribution the company has made to the re-emergence of the CBD as a place to live.

The company has been responsible for more than 20 CBD apartment buildings over the past twenty years at an investment cost of several billion dollars in site acquisition, construction and employment.

It is also behind the development of the sister buildings Melbourne Star and Melbourne Sky. The Irish Echo
