BP moving to Docklands

BP Australia is the latest corporate to announce it is relocating to Docklands.

The oil company is expected to move up to 800 staff into its new national headquarters at 717 Bourke St after the building is completed mid-next year.

The building’s developer Melbourne Civic City Pty Ltd said BP would take more than 10,000 square metres of office space.

Melbourne Civic City director Graham Fraser said he was targeting a 5 Star Green Star rating for the building’s design.

“The building itself offers one of the very few options in Melbourne for commercial tenants seeking high quality, high efficiency options with exceptional staff amenity and ESD credentials,” he said.

VicUrban’s General Manager Docklands and Major Projects Michael Hynes welcomed the news saying such developments and tenants were playing a key role in assisting Docklands’ transition into a vibrant and diverse community, as well as enhancing its integration with the CBD.

“As development takes shape over rail and along Bourke and Collins streets, the city’s most prestigious commercial hub is being drawn right into the heart of Docklands,” Mr Hynes said.

“The additional people and activity they bring are all serving to enhance Dockland’s reputation as a great place to do business,” he said.

The Bourke St site which is located across from Etihad Stadium represents a key gateway between the Docklands and the CBD. Southern Cross Station will be connected to the site by a new pedestrian bridge from the existing concourse, providing a new link into the Docklands.
