Fifty Albert is a reflection of the sophistication and plush lifestyle that is South Melbourne. It is composed of ground floor combined commercial and residents-only spaces, 7 ½ levels of car park spaces, and 21 storeys of 282 residential apartments. Aesthetic features include the sweeping balcony-adorned facades, distinguished feathered entrance and the delicate incorporation of a heritage facade front. Internally, this project boasts five star living with a lobby lounge served by a concierge bar upon entry, a residents’ health club and indoor retreat area, and a rooftop entertainment area including spa, poker room and viewing room.
