Council supports final MQ tower

02 Nov 2017

The third and final Melbourne Quarter tower received unanimous support from City of Melbourne councillors and has been referred to the Planning Minister for approval.

Councillors gave their nod to the 25-level Collins St commercial tower at the October 17 Future Melbourne Committee meeting.

Council planning portfolio chair Nicholas Reece called Melbourne Quarter a “historic” project.

“It’s 130,000sqm of new space in Melbourne. It’s going to involve 12,000 workers when it’s complete,” he said.

“When they write the history books of Melbourne about the economic and business epicentre of the city moving towards the water, Melbourne Quarter will be seen as a significant step in that move,” Cr Reece said.

Cr Reece said the public realm and building sizes at Melbourne Quarter all met the approved development plan and he was pleased developer Lendlease had referenced Docklands’ heritage in activating Aurora Place.

Melbourne Quarter’s project director Brian Herlihy said: “We’re grateful for council’s endorsement of Two Melbourne Quarter at last month’s Future Melbourne Committee, and look forward to the proposal being considered by the Minister for Planning in due course, as momentum continues to build across the Melbourne Quarter project.”
