An innovative design, facilitating connectivity and environmental sustainability

700 Bourke Street has formed the new gateway to the Docklands, heralding the precinct as an up-and-coming corporate hub of Melbourne.

The 16-level commercial building is an iconic, A-grade structure. The landmark features retail facilities and two podium levels incorporating car parking, plant rooms, bicycle storage and a fit-out for the National Australia Bank (NAB).

NAB is the single corporate tenant with the building hosting up to 6,000 employees. The building's concourse opens to the community features, including an auditorium, NAB branch and cafe. Above the concourse on levels four to fourteen is NAB office space and childcare facilities. Rooftop plant rooms and the garden terrace offer a green contrast to the urban setting, while the continuous atrium between levels two and fourteen enables natural light to permeate the design.

Environmental sustainability and accessibility for the local community are key elements of the building's design, with the design achieving a 6 Star Green Star rating. Specific environmentally sustainable features include an energy efficient facade, high performance solar glazing, a percentage of ‘small car’ car parks and a black water treatment plant.
