Cop shop becomes office precinct

05 Dec 2018

A major site at 637 Flinders St currently leased by the Victorian Police will be renewed into an office precinct after the current lease ends in July 2020.

The site, almost two city blocks, is currently the World Trade Centre, with the Victoria Police Centre as its main tenant.

Developer Zone Q acquired the site earlier in 2018 and has just released its plans – adding approximately 26,000 sqm of net leasable area in a “campus style” office precinct.

Zone Q has a strategy of acquiring sites with value-add opportunities. In this case, that is an unusually large area of space sitting between the Yarra River and the CBD grid.

“A rare find in the CBD, workplaces will have direct outdoor access from the original terrace areas on most levels and incredible views of the city, Yarra River, Port Phillip Bay and Southbank,” said Zone Q acquisitions and sales manager Daniel Crotty.

The site will be designed by Cox Architecture and will include ground floor retail aimed at both the wider community and those who work in the building. A piazza style entrance will also be included.

“The design pays homage to the richness of maritime architecture in the area, with references to wharfs, sheds and industrial aspects woven throughout the facade and interiors materially and architecture,” said Cox Architecture director Christina Prodromou.

Construction is expected to start in mid-2020 and be completed late 2021.
