Collins Square, VIC
- Builder: Expoconti
- Architect: Bates and Smart
- Project Value: $1.3 Billion
Collins Square is situated in the heart of Victoria’s Docklands and integrates five buildings to become Australia’s largest commercial mixed use development. The highly rated 5 Green Star and NABERS buildings are situated on an entire city block, covering 190m of the Collins Street frontage, effectively changing the face of the Melbourne CBD. Rondo’s main focus has been to complete 17 levels of one of the five office towers, of which two levels are for shops and a café. With the majority of the 70,000 lineal metres of product being Rondo DUO® Exposed Grid System, Rondo provided technical support for the project through weekly site visits.
Expoconti is working alongside leading architects Bates and Smart to develop over 185,000sqm of commercial space. Space at Collins Square is highly coveted with over 40% of the development already leased to major tenants including Marsh Mercer Companies, The Australian Tax Office and the Pearson Group. The official opening of the commercial space was in December 2012. Since completion, the 1.3 billion dollar project expects over 48,000 people to visit Collins Square on a daily basis. Visitors to this establishment are guaranteed a unique retail and commercial experience for what is considered to be the pinnacle of all future business district developments.
