Karaoke, mahjong and poker all features of new Eq. Tower in Melbourne

Eq. Tower is coming to Melbourne’s northern precinct and boasts karaoke facilities and a mahjong, poker and billiards room.

The Eq. Tower development, a joint venture between ICD Property and Sino-Ocean Land, is an Elenberg Fraser designed residential creation on 62 levels, that looks to have a ‘luxury hotel’ appeal.

One cannot help but imagine that with the karaoke/mahjong blend of attractions there is likely to be a marketing effort to overseas buyers.

The tower will contain 632 one, two and three bedroom apartments with views of the city skyline.

One bedroom apartments, from 40 to 54 square metres, start from $359,000, with two-bedroom apartments spanning 53 to 71 square metres from $489,000. Three bedroom penthouses, at 81 square metres, start from $891,000.

The tower will include laneway-level shops and cafes, to complete the link between Melbourne Central and the Queen Victoria Market.

The lobby will include high-ceilings and mirrored wall paneling.

Communal facilities, beginning on level seven, includes an outdoor area with 25-metre pool, spa and sauna, and grassed relaxation areas. Similarly, inside, there will be an indoor gym, private cinema, communal kitchen and dining room, lounge and karaoke suites.

On level 33, a ‘sky-high’ club will be created with a private dining room seating up to 20 guests, a games room with a billiards, poker and mahjong table, and a lounge. All these facilities can be booked on each resident’s smart phone.

Michael Mai, managing director of ICD Property, said that the tower would be a strong sense of community and integrated vertical living.

Elenberg Fraser has succeeded in bringing this vision to life and so we present Eq. Tower as the future of Melbourne living where residents can enjoy just as many experiences within their own apartment building as outside of it,” he said.

Estimated completion is in October 2017.
