A one-bedroom apartment looking onto one of Melbourne’s most iconic laneways is chasing an almost seven-figure price, despite being in one of the city’s skinniest buildings.
With exposed concrete floors and ceilings, as well as ventilation shafts and plumbing suspended from the roof, the home at 3/165 Flinders Lane, Melbourne comes with plenty of character — and a $900,000-$990,000 asking price.

And it could get there, having attracted a dozen inquiries in its first 24 hours on the market, according to Jellis Craig Brunswick’s Adrian Petrucelli.
“The phone has been ringing hot,” Mr Petrucelli said.
“With the high (3.5m) ceilings and the concrete floors and being on a whole level itself, it’s one of those really rare ones that when it comes up on the market it attracts a lot of interest.”
The apartment measures just 5.4m at its widest and spans the entire second level of the building.
“It is one of the skinniest buildings in Melbourne,” Mr Petrucelli said.
At the “Paris end” of Flinders Lane, the apartment is a short stroll to sporting and theatre precincts, as well as having the best of the CBD on its doorstep.
It also embraces its location with windows that open to the ever changing graffiti art along Hosier Lane.
Young professionals and downsizers were leading the charge for the apartment, though business operators and architecture groups were also showing interest in the residence’s mixed-use zoning.
