Fifty Albert is an apartment complex in the heart of Melbourne. Open House Melbourne visitors will be taken on a 20-minute guided tour of this next-generation building to get a taste of a working example of a vertical community. Tours will include the feature lobby lounge where residents gather for their monthly drinks, as well as the health and beauty gym retreat also on the ground floor.
