Mayfair at Melbourne
The Mayfair Location Map
412 St Kilda Rd will not only have a unique exterior along one of Melbourne's grandest boulevards, but will contribute to the activation of St Kilda Road and Bowen Crescent through the creation of a new café and restaurant with direct access from the street level. Furthermore, the development's location provides direct access to Domain Interchange and the forthcoming Domain station of Melbourne Metro Rail, transporting residents into the CBD and Melbourne's south.
Mayfair offers easy access to some of the city's most treasured landmarks, top public and private schools, lush gardens and a transportation hub. Trams run frequently along St Kilda Road, while the new proposed Domain tram-train station is in the pipeline.
Mayfair is surrounded by lush greenery as it is in close proximity to iconic parks like Albert Park Lake and Royal Botanic Gardens.
St Kilda Road boasts a vibrant arts and culture vibe. The nearby Arts Centre and Hamer Hall also offer alluring venues for inspired performances, from ballet to opera.
Mayfair is within walking distance to some of the best institutions of learning in Victoria, both public and private, such as Melbourne Grammar, Mac. Robertson Girls' High School and Wesley College. The University of Melbourne and RMIT are just a short tram ride away.
World-class restaurants, Soju Girl, Mezzalira, Chairman and Yip, Jamie’s Italian, Tosolini’s and Smoque are all within minutes of Mayfair, while dozens of other restaurants are tucked away beneath the historic Sydney and Melbourne buildings. Fancy a drink? – Highball Express, Molly, Hippo and White Rabbit give you several drink choices, but you’ll never be short of other options. Caffeine addicts need not fear either – walk outside and perk up with an espresso at Loading Zone, Two Before Ten or Harvest.
The nearby boutique shops sit comfortably next to the major shopping facilities of the Canberra Centre and ensure you can buy designer clothes and everyday groceries all in the one short trip. Women’s fashion retailers, Nunie and La Cobbler, are just two of your trendier neighbours, with their stores located on the ground floor at Mayfair. Nearby Braddon feels like a bazaar, with many exciting new cafes and designer shops popping up along Lonsdale Street evidence of the aesthetic taste of the area. Braddon is perfect for a quick Sunday coffee (or four) and slow window-shopping for everything from taxidermy birds, and vegan cupcakes to handcrafted furniture and unique artworks.
The unique range of diverse entertainment that sits within the confines of the Canberra City epitomises the sophistication of the area. Where once Canberra might have been seen as a slow drawl, today the city is alive with activity, and Mayfair sits in an enviable position allowing you to take full advantage. Even walking at a leisurely pace around London Circuit, you’ll arrive at Canberra Theatre in about ten minutes. The Canberra Street Theatre is even closer, clocking in at around five minutes by foot, while Canberra locals will attest that you’d be lucky to find a closer car park to annual events such as Floriade and the Multicultural Festival than Mayfair.
Nearby Lake Burley Griffin is a true Canberra icon and this popular attraction offers a host of activities to suit everyone. Take a casual walk around the lake’s leafy paths, or enjoy the water itself, with rowing, sailing, kayaking, dragon boating and other pursuits all year round. The National Portrait Gallery, the National Gallery of Australia and the National Library sit comfortably along the lake, just a few minutes away in the nearby suburb of Parkes.
