Capitol Grand
Location Corner Toorak Road and Chapel Street, South Yarra
Project completion March 2019

Designed by world renowned architects Bates Smart in partnership with LK Property Group, Capitol Grand is located on the edge of Melbourne’s iconic Yarra River.  At 180 metres high, Capitol Grand is the tallest landmark building outside of the CBD, boasting panoramic views across all of Melbourne.

Spread over two towers, Capitol Grand showcases six-star facilities not commonly seen in Australian residential developments, including stunning Jack Merlo designed elevated gardens that feature private cabanas and entertainment areas, as well as a private lounge.

Multiplex’s on-site construction crew used the site’s tower crane to install a smaller crawler crane on the garden level, which was then used to lift our specialist blowing equipment and to act as an anchor to prevent the pipework from damaging the façade of the building.

Utilising our unique blower hose system, the Ecodynamics team seamlessly installed 235m3 of soil and mulch over the course of a week, ensuring the best platform for establishment of the garden.
