Situated at 587-589 Elizabeth Street in Melbourne, Australia, E589 is the latest residential development helping to transform the northern part of Elizabeth Street. E589 will burst into the vibrant and energetic 3000 postcode, offering residents a cosmopolitan lifestyle just north of the city’s buzzing epicenter.

Architecturally unique, Architects EAT have created a geometric facade to the building; contemporary in design, yet stylishly understated so as not to weary over time. More images and architects’ description after the break.

This state of the art boutique development comprises just 55 one and two bedroom dwellings, spread over nine levels along with two ground floor retail stores. Dwellings range from 42m2 to 67m2 with three beautiful and opulent color schemes available to suit the purchaser’s individual taste. Both retail stores have already been sold by CBRE agent Andrew Leoncelli who expects an experienced and reputable cafe operator to establish a great coffee experience for all residents.

The patterned and artistic façade of E589 will continuously alter, as per the occupant’s input. When all of the louvers are shut, the building literally becomes a uniform minimal cube. When opened up, it becomes a see through glass structure. Inside each apartment, design and living luxuries include stone bench tops, European stainless steel appliances for the kitchens, solar hot water and reverse cycle air conditioning. Additionally, in consideration to ESD, each balcony has an individual louvre system allowing residents to effectively control the amount of sunlight entering their apartments, keeping them cooler in the summer and warmer and brighter in winter, reducing the development’s impact on the environment.

Within easy walk to the University of Melbourne, RMIT, Flagstaff Gardens and some of the city’s most celebrated restaurants, cafés and bars, E-589 is bound to attract much attention from investors and the 25-34 age bracket of first homebuyers.
