Situated adjacent to Hickory’s Central South Yarra project and moments from the recently completed Ilk apartments and Vogue tower, Claremont Manor is the latest in a successful lineage of large-scale Hickory-built developments in Melbourne’s popular South Yarra area.

Rising 19 stories and highlighted by a strong contrasting colour palette, gold highlights and a linear facade, the exterior architecture by Bird de la Couer ensures Claremont Manor asserts a prominent position in the precinct.

The luxury interiors by Hassell Studio also set the project apart, and include luxury apartments, retail and commercial tenancies and an exclusive residents club on level 2 complete with swimming pool, 24-hour gym and private indoor winter retreat.


Situated on a very tight street with multiple construction projects going on at same time, requiring strict coordination to ensure smooth delivery

The final basement level lies below the water table level, requiring careful planning during excavation

A stainless steel crown sits at roof level, and gold louvred art screens feature across the glass façade

This project consists of two interlocking black and white towers, comprising 318 apartments, office and commercial spaces and 3 levels of basement carpark
