St Kilda apartment has iconic view of Luna Park and Palais Theatre
A St Kilda apartment with what could be the south side’s most iconic view has hit the market.
Luna Park, the Palais Theatre and Port Phillip Bay are the backdrop for the two-bedroom apartment at 103/30 The Esplanade.
The Melbourne attractions are mere metres away from the SJB Architects boutique development in the thick of the action.

McGrath St Kilda agent Michael Townsend said the apartment was in an “iconic position”.
“In our mind it is the best location in Melbourne, opposite Luna Park and the recently renovated Palais Theatre, plus it is close to The Espy and Acland St,” Mr Townsend said.
The sleek and stylish apartment has a covered balcony that captures the spectacular backdrop, as does the open-plan living area inside.
Mr Townsend said SJB Architects’ design of the building was different, with its curved facade, but it fitted in well with the St Kilda streetscape.
“It had to be a little bit different, a bit cool yet sophisticated,” he said.
He said this type of apartment, with rear terrace and two basement car parks, was incredibly sought after as it was a lifestyle opportunity.
“They attract downsizers looking for a city base when they come to Melbourne and want to stay right in the thick of the action as well as professional couples or singles that like to entertain,” he said.

Mr Townsend said there was always interest for that type of property no matter what the market was doing.
The property is going to auction on June 29 at 10am, with price hopes of $1.1-$1.17 million.
