Built in the Recent period in the Post-Modern style
The Metropolis apartments on St Kilda Road is an art-deco inspired post modern design which has defied the current trend in modernism to find a niche in the apartment market. The Metropolis building is crowned by a series of horizontally emphasizing balconies mimicking the moderne style and broken by a vertical fins that orignate at ground level for a soaring effect at street level which acts to soften the bulk of the building.
