The ‘tower of power’ was one of the first modern high-rise apartments to be built in Melbourne.

It quickly became a hub of the rich and powerful, attracting people like Australia’s first billionaire Robert Holmes a Court, restorer George Tsindos and stockbroker Sir Ian Potter.

Mr. Packer bought the apartment in the 1980s and used it as his home base in Melbourne.

He was considered one of the most powerful media moguls in the country with an estimated net worth of $ 6.5 billion.

Mr. Packer sold his apartment in the tower in 2000 for $ 1.4 million.

The new owner has completely renovated the interior, giving it a luxurious and modern twist.

The apartment consists of two living rooms and three bedrooms, each with their own ensuite and walk-in closets.

The open plan dining area and living room make it the perfect stage for entertaining guests.

An outside balcony offers stunning views of the city with the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Treasury Building and St Paul’s Cathedral all in view.

The floors are made of solid oak and Italian tiles, while the windows are double glazed.
