A landmark moment for Melbourne

For the last 10 years, Riverlee has dedicated itself to planning and designing an extraordinary residential setting on the north bank of the Yarra—one that aspires to a higher ideal of luxury, to honouring the history of its unique location, and to giving back in a meaningful way to all Melburnians. With every carefully considered detail now settled, our ambition can be realised.

Transforming a forgotten island of city land into a riverside precinct of remarkable quality and character, Seafarers will be home to Melbourne’s first eco-luxury hotel, and first international hotel-branded residences.

Centred on an inspired reimagining of the heritage-protected Goods Shed 5 by Fender Katsalidis, the bold sculptural composition of Seafarers is a sublime addition to the cityscape. Its regeneration is a chance to bring the unique island setting back to life while celebrating the location’s rich maritime history.
