Multiplex completes first luxury tower at Capitol Grand


20 May 2019

Premier global construction company, Multiplex, has reached completion on Capitol Grand Tower, the first luxury tower on LK Property Group’s $800 million six-star retail and high-rise residential development, Capitol Grand.

Prominently located on the corner of Toorak Road and Chapel Street in Melbourne’s CBD, the Capitol Grand development consists of two luxury residential towers comprising a combined total of 400 apartments; Capitol Grand Tower and the 50-storey LK Tower.

Designed by high profile architects Bates Smart, the Capitol Grand Tower boasts 88 luxury apartments across 10 levels.


“We are thrilled to complete the first luxury residential tower on this monumental project and continue our ongoing partnership with LK Property Group. Capitol Grand represents the epitome of luxury living and we are proud to contribute to yet another inner-city landmark,” said Graham Cottam, Regional Managing Director at Multiplex.

A range of innovative construction techniques have been used by Multiplex including the use of cantilevered offset grillages on cranes to minimise impact to permanent structure, temporary shield structure to protect overhead services during crane lifts from Chapel Street and the installation of the façade behind formwork protection screens to mitigate the risk of falling objects.

Cutting-edge design features of Capitol Grand Tower include undulating balustrades with a unique frit pattern, as well as high end finishes, appliances and fixtures and fittings throughout the tower.


ESD features include solar panels and rain water harvesting technology from the Tower roof which will assist with watering the landscaped podium area.

Work commenced on the Capitol Grand project in January 2017 and according to Multiplex over 2,500 people worked on site throughout construction.

The Capitol Grand precinct will feature an exquisite lobby, private pools, gyms, dining areas and Jack Merlo designed elevated gardens. At 180 metres tall, the LK Tower will boast panoramic views across Melbourne, particularly from its upper levels where five whole-floor penthouses feature 360-degree views.

Residents who purchase an apartment on Level 32 or above will have their own entrance, three dedicated lifts and exclusive access to the Azure Club, which will feature a state-of-the-art gym, lounges, dining rooms and an infinity pool.


Capitol Grand will also house fine dining establishments, three levels of luxury retail, and a five-level basement carpark for residents.

The final stage of the luxury project is scheduled for completion in late 2019.
