The fifth and final commercial office tower at Walker Corporation’s landmark $2.5 billion Collins Square development in Melbourne’s CBD has been completed.
Collins Square is considered to be one of the largest commercial mixed-use developments in Australia. Spanning an entire city block, it consists of five commercial office buildings with more than 250,000 square metres of commercial space and 10,000 square metres of retail area.
Located at 727 Collins Street, the final $168.5 million tower spans 33-levels and reaches an impressive 117 metres in height. It provides a total area of approximately 40,000 square metres of commercial office space and includes an integrated fit-out for anchor tenant Transurban on Levels 24 – 31.
Designed by high-profile architecture firm Woods Bagot, Collins Square Tower 5 features high-quality office space with an architectural curved curtain wall façade to provide a light-filled spacious office floor plate.
The tower also features several innovative design features including destination-controlled lifts with Bluetooth technology throughout that allows occupants to access and control the elevators through their mobile phones, a curved architectural curtain wall system and curved structural steel roof to prevent overshading of Southbank.
In addition, the Collins Square development has already been recognised with a Green Star Design and As Built v3 Rating as well as a minimum NABERS Energy 5 Star Rating due to its use of a Tri-Generation system for producing power.
Multiplex Victoria Managing Director Graham Cottam said they are proud to deliver the final tower at Collins Square, completing this premier commercial precinct for Melbourne.
“The smooth delivery of this major project is a reflection of our on-going collaboration with Walker Corporation, which has seen Multiplex deliver the last four towers at Collins Square,” he said.
Work commenced on Tower 5 in April 2017 and approximately 1,973 people worked on site throughout construction.
