The Victorian Government has given the green light for the construction of Lendlease’s $180 million Melbourne Quarter Tower development – the second Melbourne Quarter commercial tower.

Melbourne Quarter Tower is going to be located at 693 Collins Street and it will be 28-storeys tall – the precinct’s largest office tower featuring a 55,000SQM office space and an additional 2,500SQM of retail space.

Like One Melbourne Quarter – Lendlease’s first development on the precinct – Melbourne Quarter Tower will also aim to have a Six Green Star rating as well as a Five-Star NABERS energy rating.

“Melbourne Quarter aims to set leading standards in environmentally sensitive and sustainable development, and aspires to be Melbourne’s greenest city precinct.

“The hero of the new precinct, the skypark, will complement Melbourne Quarter’s leading workplace design, offering workers the ability to re-charge or work outside the office, enhancing their health and wellbeing. This is a key trend in global workplace design,” said Lendlease Managing Director for Urban Regeneration Mark Menhinnitt.

Melbourne Quarter Tower is the centrepiece of Lendlease’s $2.5 billion Melbourne Quarter project.

The construction of the Melbourne Quarter precinct is expected to create up to 15,000 jobs during construction. Once the precinct is completed, it will provide approximately 130,000SQM of flexible and agile office space for over 12,000 employees.
