More workers near stadium Image

The stadium precinct will receive a population boost over the next few months with staff moving into the new Medibank building at 720 Bourke St.

According to a Medibank spokesperson, around 1500 staff from five sites across Melbourne will move into the new building progressively through until mid-October.

“Medibank is continuing its commitment as a major tenant in the local community and we hope our new building will bring soul, passion and a needed green space to the Docklands,” a Medibank spokesperson said.

The unique building features green walls along Bourke St, with native plants climbing the exterior. It also offers a new public space to the community through a newly-planted public park, according to the spokesperson.

“The reintroduction of nature into this highly urbanised precinct will help improve local air quality, entice birds and help manage temperatures in the summer,” the spokesperson said.

According to the spokeperson, each element of the new building has been designed with health at its core.

“From the bike ramp spiralling up into the heat of the building, to the multipurpose sports court and kitchen garden, the building delivers considerably more than the average workplace and is designed to encourage movement throughout the day,” the spokesperson said.
