Located in the heart of Melbourne’s central business district (CBD), UniLodge’s two recently completed premium student living properties offer a combined 1,366 units and are now welcoming residents.

Situated close to RMIT University on La Trobe Street, UniLodge Melbourne Central offers 714 units across 46 floors, whilst UniLodge Melbourne CBD brings 652 self-contained studio and multi-share apartments across 37 floors set within a unique historic building on Wills Street, just a short walk from RMIT and Victoria University City Campus. Both facilities offer exclusive access to bespoke cinemas, futuristic gyms, social areas, study and sky lounges, creating an inspiring environment where students can thrive.

Giving a new lease of life to the former Victorian Printing Works building, the Wills Street development preserved the historic façade which now creates a stunning backdrop to the common areas. With sustainability a high design priority, both schemes achieved five-star Green Star certification, whilst each of these developments is targeting Climate Active certification to reflect carbon neutrality in their operation.

Waterman’s team provided a variety of services, including Mechanical, Electrical, Fire, Hydraulic, Vertical Transportation and ESD designs across both buildings.
