Hundreds flock to Melbourne Quarter for Open House Image

Nearly 700 visitors descended on developer LendLease’s ground-breaking Melbourne Quarter development over the weekend of Jul 27 and 28 as part of Open House Melbourne.

The precinct featured three different spaces for the event, with One Melbourne Quarter, design and engineering firm Arup’s offices and the Melbourne Sky Park opened to the public to explore.

“We had almost 700 visitors through for what was a great showcase of Lendlease’s workplace, the One Melbourne Quarter building and the MQ precinct,” state manager, external affairs at LendLease Victoria Amelia Cater said.

“With Arup also opening its doors to the public, the weekend was a great demonstration of Lendlease’s capabilities in workplace, urbanisation, construction and place creation.”

“Initiatives like this are a very important part of building Lendlease’s social licence in the community and in promoting the MQ project.”

The Open House weekend saw Arup offer guided tours and conduct experimental lab demonstrations in its three-level workspace designed by architects Hassell.

The 2000 sqm Melbourne Sky Park also proved a popular attraction to visitors, which features a landscaped garden, lawn and outdoor seating created by Denton Corker Marshall in collaboration with Aspect Oculus. The park also has wi-fi connection complete with power outlets and USB charge points.

The entire Melbourne Quarter project, which once completed will cover an entire city block, is anticipated to be completed in 2022.
