Zen was designed to be a sanctuary within the fast-paced central business district of Melbourne. It stands sentry-like at the northern edge of the CBD, its golden top a beacon that welcomes residents home.
Completed in 2012, Zen’s quality interiors and amenities – alongside its proximity to transport, education and shopping – have retained its status as one of Melbourne’s most desirable places to live.
An Eastern aesthetic is present in both the exteriors and interiors. An intricate gold pattern wraps the podium, bamboo and lighting installations highlight the lobby and the colour red was widely used for interior styling.
Lifestyle amenities include a barbecue terrace, yoga room, gym, swimming pool, sauna, steam room and day spa, all rendered in a range of luxe finishes. Residents enjoy easy access to Elizabeth and Swanston streets tram lines. Melbourne Central is a quick walk away and world-renowned Queen Victoria Market is just down Therry Street.
Zen offers a range of sensible perks such as secure swipe card access, lobby video surveillance, a 24-hour concierge, building management and security service. A serene enclave for all who call it home, Zen provides respite from the hustle and bustle of our amazing city.
At the culmination of Elizabeth Street and Royal Parade were Carlton meets the CBD, Zen Apartments takes its place amongst the cities knowledge precinct. This prestigious area is dotted with pocket parks and cafes and is home to the University of Melbourne, RMIT, the Royal Hospital, Royal Woman's Hospital, Royal Children's Hospital and the new Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre.
