Development Update: Lantern


Lantern is nestled in between Collingwood’s thriving green spaces: Fitzroy Gardens’ magical, miniature village to the south, Yarra Boulevard’s cyclist and kayaker haven to the east, and Carlton Gardens’ historical, manicured lawns to the west. The latter is also where one will find the Melbourne Museum, a post-modernist fixture that walks the line between past and future.

Basement works have been completed and works on the structure have now commenced. Cladding will commence shortly which will incorporate the window systems, all feature architecture elements, wall finishing, and balustrading. As the apartments become watertight, the services rough in will commence with internal fit out works to follow.

In relation to the programme the status is as follows:
