The tower, located at 22-28 Brougham Street, will include 13,100 square metres of office space, 116 car parks and 100 bycicle spaces and has been designed to accomodate 850 employees.

The tower will help revitalise the Geelong CBD and will be the first of many new developments, bringing construction jobs and economic growth to the city.
