Gravity Tower, 89 Gladstone St, South Melbourne

October 2017

The Gravity Tower on the corner of Montague St and Gladstone St in Montague is complete.
It was one of the earliest planning approvals in Fishermans Bend, dating back to 2015.

It emerges from every angle, showing a slightly different face depending on the time of day.

Designed by Plus Architecture, architects of the Armada development in Nott St, and developed by Blue Earth.

'Aluminium sun shields criss-cross the floor-to-ceiling glazing almost like herringbone fabric' Stephen Crafti writes. (Age, 28 October 2017)

The Gravity Tower contains 144 apartments over 29 levels.
