Seafarers Reaches New Heights: Celebrating Topping Out Milestone

We’re thrilled to share an incredible milestone: Seafarers has reached its highest point!

This week, the Seafarers’ project team gathered for a topping out ceremony led by builders, Icon. It was a moment of reflection on the journey to date and anticipation for the excitement that lies ahead.

From navigating complex structures to overcoming engineering challenges, this milestone signifies the next phase of the project as Icon transitions from structure works to completing the façade installation and beginning interior fit-out works.

During the ceremony, Brett Howlett, Project Director at Riverlee, described the façade as ‘perhaps the most complex facade this city has seen, it’s like a massive jigsaw puzzle put together.’

Inspired by its riverfront setting, the façade beautifully merges industrial heritage with the movement of the Yarra River. The unique island site allows its architecture to be experienced in full, and from 360 degrees—each viewing angle revealing the design in a new light.

The attention to detail and precision from the project team in conceptualising, designing, fabricating, and installing this façade is a remarkable feat. Seafarers is not just a building; it’s a legacy project for Melbourne.

With only a limited number of residences remaining, now is the time to secure your place in Australia’s first 1 Hotel & Homes.

These luxury hotel-branded residences, located on levels 9-18, offer an unparalleled lifestyle experience, complemented by a riverfront address and access to premium amenities. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of history and elevate your living experience.
