A conversation series with our esteemed residents and Gamuda Land.
Apartment living has become the go-to option for Melburnians with busy lifestyles. For those not wanting to compromise on size and luxury amenities, 661 Chapel has been a sought-after, modern residential collection that offers all the comforts of home and the simplicity of apartment living.
Meet John, who recently purchased a 3 bedroom residence at 661 Chapel. His role as CEO of a large healthcare company sees him travelling frequently. It took just 6 months of searching before he set his sights on 661 Chapel St. A central, buzzing location and beautifully designed interiors were just two of the reasons why John made the move.
What attracted you to 661 Chapel St?
I wasn’t in the market for long as I was very particular about the type of apartment I wanted. Location was paramount as were high level amenities and quality. In less than 6 months I’d found my dream apartment! What really appealed was that the build is of exceptional quality and set back from the street which gives it that sense of separation and less noise. The views are remarkable and won’t be built out!
What category buyer type do you identify as?
I’m a downsizer who is looking for low maintenance living but not ready to compromise on size or quality. Interior design, modern features, security and great amenities were on my list of priorities.
Was location a factor in your decision?
Absolutely. I was looking inner-city but not particularly South Yarra. I found myself drawn to the area because it’s so diverse. It’s just as close to hit the shops and restaurants as it is to find yourself walking through stunning parks and gardens. With the city, sports stadiums and Yarra river just minutes away – it literally does have everything at your door.
Now that you are living at 661 Chapel St, what do you enjoy most?
The residents’ amenities are fantastic. The gym is particularly great for me – no more excuses now that I have a gym in my building! It’s great inviting a few friends over to use the cinema as well. There’s a real sense of community in the building. It’s not too large or impersonal. Most people chat and get to know you and there’s that unsaid thing where we look out for each-other and the building itself.
