The highest building outside Melbourne’s city centre will soar to 50-storeys.

Ratio appeared before an Independent Panel for the ‘Chapel re-Vision’ amendment,
submitting that the site should be formally identified as an ‘architectural landmark’ and ‘urban
marker’ development.

An Elite Development 

Designed by Bates Smart with landscape architecture by Jack Merlo, Capitol Grand will have over 450 apartments and luxury retail tenancies at podium level.

Process of Approval

Initially, the proposal was rejected by Stonnington councillors, despite members of the consultant team working closely with Council staff to gain a positive officer’s recommendation.

However, following VCAT approval, the iconic building has become an architectural landmark for South Yarra and the catalyst for the rejuvenation and revitalisation of the northern end of Chapel Street.
