The luxury muse apartment complex in melbourne

Waterman is carrying out work on a 14-storey block of flats in Melbourne the developer claims is the most high-tech resi scheme in Australia.

Residents will not require keys or smart cards to access their homes at The Muse development and instead will be able to access all the building’s facilities and control their homes remotely through an app.

Waterman’s building services and sustainability director Brian Mason said: “The level of technology being developed is unprecedented.”

Developer Devitt Property Group said the building will include 35 to 45 apartments with 6-star amenities, including access to a 20m lap pool, relaxation pool and spa, gym with sauna and steam rooms and a residents’ club lounge with meeting rooms.

Designed by local architect Bruce Henderson Architects, it will include a A$40m (£22.5m) penthouse.

The project on the city’s St Kilda Road is due to finish in late 2020.
