Ever wondered what it would be like working in a Docklands building that hasn’t been built yet?

Thanks to a revolutionary virtual reality (VR) platform, locals can see into the not-too-distant future today.

Prospective tenants can interact with 1000 La Trobe St, Docklands – a site currently under construction and due for completion in 2021 – at developer Poly Australia’s display suite in Rialto Tower in the CBD.

Poly Victoria executive director Steve Wang said the implementation came after the developer identified the need to create a more comprehensive and immersive experience for potential occupants.

“Our virtual reality asset for 1000 La Trobe showcases the development’s design, capabilities and benefits via innovation that far surpasses traditional means of three-dimensional models and still renders,” he said.

“It provides a completely interactive experience, allowing the user to travel through tenancy floors and dedicated amenity spaces, ensuring they gain a real-life feel for how the development can cater to their needs.”

In addition to releasing latest renders of its development, Mr Wang said the VR model showcased the external and internal design and included the ground-floor amenities, sky balconies, views from each level and much more.

Senior director of the Victorian branch of JLL Ashley Buller said the future of real estate lay in using technology to enhance the way we invested in, managed and occupied real estate.

“Occupiers are continuing to demand innovative solutions to visualise the space they are committing to,” he said.

“This interactive design solution is market leading in the commercial office environment and is aligned to Poly’s technology focussed approach in the delivery of 1000 La Trobe St.”

The 40,000 sqm development will consist of 23 levels reaching approximately 91m high and will be the first major high-rise tower in the Digital Harbour Precinct.

It consists of highly efficient floor plates averaging 2100 sqm, allowing ample flexibility for tenants.

The design hosts the opportunity for vertical floor integrations, access to health and wellness facilities, and a 700 sqm co-working centre. It also includes ground floor retail.
