664 Collins St opens for business

664 Collins St opens for business Image

On July 2, Mirvac and its tenants Pitcher Partners, AGL, ExxonMobil, Nexus Mutual and Fujitsu celebrated the official opening of its new office building at 664 Collins St.

The completion represents the final stage in the redevelopment of the Southern Cross Station precinct and builds on the success of the adjacent 699 Bourke St, which was opened in 2015.

Both buildings are built on concrete decks above the rail concourse above the station. 

During the grand opening event, guests witnessed the first reveal of a prominent eight metre-high LED media wall in the lobby. The giant screen will display digital artwork created by design students from Swinburne University.

More than 50 students were commissioned by Mirvac, as part of a partnership with the university, to create dynamic, responsive content that intrigues, entertains, tells stories and catches the eyes of commuters as they make their way to and from the station.

Mirvac’s head of office and industrial, Campbell Hanan said: “We are proud to have delivered 664 Collins St, which represents the culmination of over 10 years of design and construction to deliver a new office precinct within the heart of Melbourne.”

“As well as being a considerable feat of engineering, it also makes a significant contribution to the redevelopment of the wider Southern Cross Station precinct.”

The 26,000 sqm office tower, which is 100 per cent leased, has been designed to meet the increased sophistication of the workplace. The provision of innovative smart technology will allow Mirvac and its tenants to better understand the building’s utilisation, collecting real-time data to improve efficiency and effectiveness.

Ultimately, this will future-proof 664 Collins St against the changing forces of work and workforces. Mirvac has also partnered with AGL to install a 180kW solar array on the roof of the building, which has already started to offset the building’s base consumption.

Pitcher Partners’ managing partner, Brendan Britten, said: “664 Collins St has been purpose-built to meet the needs of our firm and take us into the future. With its expansive floors, open plan design and close proximity to nearby transport links and amenities, we are delighted to offer our people and our clients this exceptional working environment within the reinvigorated Docklands locale.”

Grimshaw managing partner, Neil Stonell, said: “Creating a new ground plane 15 metres in the air above the rail corridor at Victoria’s major transport hub has been an incredibly challenging but rewarding endeavour.”

“As a critical over-site development for the city, 664 Collins St stitches together Melbourne’s Central Business District and Docklands precinct, providing a highly flexible 12-storey workplace that traverses the rail corridor, and creates an elegant and calm backdrop to the undulating Southern Cross Station roof,” he said.

664 Collins St is targeting a 5 Star Green Star Design and 5 Star NABERS Energy rating. It also embraces best-in-class tenant end-of-trip facilities, along with on-site car parking.
