447 Collins Street, Melbourne
Multiplex has started construction on what is set to be Melbourne’s newest landmark, the Collins Arch development for client Cbus Properties.
Located at 447 Collins Street, Collins Arch will be Melbourne’s first truly mixed-use development. Spanning a 6,000m2 city block, the development includes luxury apartments, a five-star hotel, WELL-rated offices, retail and 2,000m2 of public open space including a tiered amphitheatre.
Designed by SHoP Architects and Woods Bagot, the development’s two 39-level towers are linked by a spectacular eight-story Skybridge spanning 14 metres.
A total of 202 residential apartments will occupy parts of both towers, including the Skybridge, providing views across Melbourne. Residential amenities are located at level 34 with an additional sky garden located at level 39.
The W Hotel will take up residence in the East Tower, with 294 guest rooms across 15 levels, while the West tower will contain the bulk of the 49,000sq PCA premium grade office accommodation.
Construction started in October 2016 and Collins Arch is expected to be complete in Q3 2019.
