Named in honour of the leading Australian artist Arthur Boyd, the Boyd tower was completed in 2002 as part of the second stage of the residential redevelopment of Docklands’ NewQuay.
Constructed by MAB Corporation and designed by award winning architects Fender Katsalidis and SJB Architects, the Boyd is part of a three-piece composition comprising two towers - the Boyd and the Palladio - with the waterfront podium apartments of the Sant‘Elia.
The Boyd is home to 172 apartments over 23 levels, each thoughtfully considered to offer picturesque views of Melbourne’s city skyline and Victoria Harbour. The Boyd offers residents access to an exclusive health club featuring rooftop pool, private function area and fully-equipped gymnasium with stunning views.
Docklands was designed to connect Melbourne’s CBD to the waterfront of Victoria Harbour, converting a disused harbour frontage into a sophisticated waterfront suburb of a world class standard.
From the original development at NewQuay of residential apartments, restaurants and a marina, Docklands has grown as a waterfront precinct to offer an exciting mix of city living, shopping, business, parks, entertainment, dining, sporting events, community events, arts and culture.
Consisting of 200 hectares of land and water, Docklands is now home to the national headquarters for many major businesses including the National Australia Bank, ANZ, Myer, AXA, Bendigo Bank, Medibank Private and the Bureau of Meteorology.
Only 60 percent complete, it's estimated that by around 2031 Docklands will be home to over 22,000 residents and 50,000 workers.
