New tower for Vic Harbour

02 Dec 2015

Lend Lease has lodged a planning application for a 28-storey apartment tower surrounded by water.

No.1 Collins Wharf is set to act as a gateway to the new Collins Wharf precinct, for which Lend Lease is currently finalising its plans.

Located next to the Library at the Dock and the boating and community hub, the new tower will be situated in the middle of Victoria Harbour’s community precinct.

“No.1 Collins Wharf will take advantage of Victoria Harbour’s existing community assets, including Library at The Dock, over 80 retail stores and adjacency to free public transport, while featuring one of Melbourne’s most unique addresses,” Lend Lease director Jonathan Emery said.

Designed by Bates Smart, the tower will comprise 311 apartments and 10 “Collins St Terraces”, described as three bedroom homes over three levels, with north-facing rooftop terraces.

“This highly sculptured tower is fortunate to be surrounded by water, a situation completely unique within Melbourne,” Bates Smart director Kristen Whittle said.

“It heralds the beginning of a new precinct in out city set to redefine waterfront living in Australia.”

The new tower proposal continues Lend Lease’s strong push into the residential apartment market in recent years, with 1600 new homes to be built in the precinct by the end of 2017.

Mr Emery said Victoria Harbour’s residential population would triple over the next three years.

“It’s a very exciting time in Victoria Harbour,” Mr Emery said. “Over the coming months we will welcome around 500 new residents to the precinct as people move into the Concavo building, and over the next two years we’ll deliver a further 1600 homes across the 883, 888, 889 Collins St projects,” he said.
