First impressions count, but the rooftop pool and last impression at the Oasis Residences is pretty impressive too.
FIRST impressions count.
At Holder East’s Oasis Residences in South Melbourne the first impression will be a four-storey lobby of polished stone adorned with hanging greenery and a water feature to provide a tranquil acoustic backdrop.

Developer to host photographic exhibition at former Pink Palace brothel
Set to cost $5 million, it shows how residents have been put at the forefront of the Hayball architects-designed development, according to chief operating officer CJ Wu.
The apartments also showcase the resident-first thinking.
“The first impression will be that it’s a very natural space, like an island resort,” Mr Wu said. “We could have had more apartments but wanted to provide more amenities.”
Rather than the 7sq m of amenities space the local council required for each apartment, the development has 35sq m.
Reading a book will require you to tear your eyes away from the impressive library.
A two-storey library with 5.2m-high ceiling, a heated 20m rooftop pool and a piano room are all included.
Next to the piano room, a children’s playroom will offer young families a wet-weather escape.
“There are going to be kids and families here,” Mr Wu said. “Most of our inquiries are from buyers with families.”
The children friendly development offers a playroom for kids.
Beyond the professional couples and families there have also been those seeking to buy their own castle in the sky.
One buyer has already bought six apartments and combined them for a single residence spanning 500sq m.
A $6.4 million loft apartment across two levels has also been sold and a number of buyers have eyed the four penthouses on the building’s 18th floor.
The development’s upper levels will come with impressive views.
There are affordable options too, with one- and two-bedroom apartments combining lower price points with splashes of the marble-clad luxury that is found everywhere in the larger, more expensive residences for as little as $392,000.
Timber joinery and stone features, including island benches, will blend with a choice of colour schemes that are either highlighted with gunmetal grey or hints of gold.
Copious polished stone is on display in the development’s larger apartments.
Floor-to-ceiling windows will provide plenty of natural light and take advantage of the views — on offer in every direction from the development’s higher levels.
Further resident features at the development include a private dining room and bar, a concierge, gym, sauna, yoga studio and electric car charging points planned for the basement carparking area.
