Park Towers, South Yarra

Park Towers, South YarraPark Towers is an impressive block of flats in South Yarra.

Designed by Arthur W Plaisted, the flats were constructed in 1938. They consist of two blocks facing each other forming a central courtyard which is open to the street.

The main features of the blocks are the curved windows and balconies (some of which have been enclosed), the metalwork on the ballustrades and the decorative elements around the roofline.

There is a 'chequerboard-like' pattern on the blocks at the ceiling level of the first floor and the entrance to each block is decorated with stunning green tiles.
