Aspire Melbourne joint-venture developers, ICD Property and MaxCap Group, are proud to bring to market the ‘Aspire Residences’, a collection of exclusive penthouse, sub-penthouse, full floor, half floor, and quarter floor residences occupying the uppermost levels of the elegant 64-storey tower, Aspire Melbourne.

Expertly curated by Australia’s premier interior designer David Hicks – whose global work has grown synonymous with luxury living, opulence, and grandeur – the Aspire Residences represent a new height of aspirational living becoming accessible within Melbourne.

According to Tim Storey, of marketing agent Colliers International, Aspire Melbourne has been one of Australia’s most successful residential projects in Australia since its launch in 2019, with the Aspire Residences collection being one of the last opportunities to purchase into the development.

“There have been no project launches in Melbourne CBD since we launched Aspire in 2019, nor are there any other projects currently in the immediate future offering this level of finish and calibre” Mr Storey said.

“The continuation of high occupier demand recently driven by record low interest rates, improving economic conditions, government incentives and low supply levels will see the Aspire Residences as one of the only premium Penthouse collections in Melbourne CBD,” said Mr Storey.

Not only do the Aspire Residences offer 360-degree views of Flagstaff Gardens, Port Phillip Bay and Melbourne’s iconic skyline, but purchasers of the Residences will also enjoy private access to the tower’s indulgent five-star hotel-style amenities including a sky-high Champagne Conservatory; designed for small parties to share bottles amongst the clouds, as well as an enviable Whiskey Parlour and Park Suite Residents’ Lounge; two distinctly lavish spaces for owners to host grand cocktail parties and dinner gatherings. For those seeking a more majestic destination to host their friends and family, an exclusive Ballroom with a fully equipped kitchen for caterers, mirrored walls, and marble benchtops is available for booking free of charge.

The crown jewel penthouse of the Aspire Residences soars high above the rest of the tower on the 64th floor. Spanning across an impressive 639sqm, the penthouse comprises five generously sized bedrooms, five bathrooms, two powder rooms, and is priced at $12,800,000.

Full floor residences emulating the single top-floor penthouse start from $9,983,000 for five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and two powder rooms across 639sqm; whilst the half-floor and quarter-floor residences are priced from $4,674,000 for three bedrooms, three bathrooms, one powder room across 291sqm, and $2,150,000 for three bedrooms and three bathrooms across 141sqm, respectively.

“The Aspire Residences represents a fantastic value proposition for Owner Occupiers and Downsizers who are looking to buy space to suit their aspirational lifestyle.” said Mr Storey.

For the fortunate few who find themselves purchasing the Aspire Residences’ penthouse and sub-penthouse, a bespoke one-on-one design experience with David Hicks is available upon request to custom tailor the entire home to their individual tastes.


“We want Aspire to be a celebration of the architecture form and the views, whilst providing a subtle yet glamorous interior palette that could adapt to any further decorative addition”, said David Hicks on his choice of colour and materials within the Aspire Residences.


“ICD came to me with the brief to design the best residences seen in the world. I believe we have achieved this through our design”, said David Hicks.


“When we first began designing the penthouse floors of Aspire Melbourne, we knew we wanted to deliver something exceptional. Something worthy of the 360-degree views from the top floors of our elegant 64-storey tower. The decision to collaborate with David was an easy one. He has produced the finest collection of residences for Aspire that speak to the aspirational lifestyle our tower can offer and I couldn’t be prouder of the outcome we’ve achieved,” said ICD Property Managing Director, Matt Khoo.


Located on the north-eastern edge of Melbourne’s CBD, Aspire Melbourne is set to stand proud at 211 metres tall and will showcase an impressive sculptural façade designed by award-winning architects Elenberg Fraser.


Construction for Aspire Melbourne commenced in May 2020 and despite tough market conditions with ongoing COVID-19 lockdowns, builders Hickory and project managers Sinclair Brook have been able to progress the tower’s build ahead of original programming. The construction crane is currently on site with the tower set to slowly form amongst Melbourne’s skyline throughout this year.


The first portion of staged settlements (including all 96 apartments across levels one to eight) are scheduled to begin in the next 12 months.


The Aspire Residences is exclusively listed with Colliers International. For more information or to make an enquiry, please visit
