New tower for Collins Square

11 Feb 2014

Walker Corporation has begun work on the tallest tower to be built in Melbourne in more then 10 years.

The tower will be the fourth Walker Corporation has built at its Collins Square development in Docklands, having secured big four accounting group KPMG as anchor tenant.

It had been long-rumoured that Walker Corporation was attempting to entice the company down to the Docklands end of Collins St. KPMG’s current Melbourne head office is also on Collins St but is closer to Spring St.

Walker Corporation announced the 15-year deal in December. KPMG will lease 27,000 sqm of the new tower, which overall comprises 55,000 sqm over 38 levels.

Walker Corporation chairman Lang Walker said the company was “delighted” to sign KPMG.

“Their signing reinforces Collins Square as Melbourne’s leading new commercial, retail and hospitality centre, and we are receiving even greater enquiries off the back of the KPMG signing,” Mr Walker said.

Early work began at the site in December, with completion scheduled for late 2016.
