Tower 5 “tops out” at Collins Square

29 May 2018

Walker Corporation has reached a major construction milestone at Collins Square, with the fifth and final commercial tower having “topped out".

Tower 5 is the final piece in the puzzle at Collins Square and heralds the near completion of the $2.5 billion project.

The $480 million Tower 5 rises 33-levels and is 117 m high. Upon completion, Tower 5 will provide a total net lettable area of approximately 40,000 sqm of commercial office space.

Designed by Woods Bagot, the fifth tower features high quality office space with an architectural curtain wall facade to provide a light-filled spacious entry and public circulation space.

Multiplex was engaged by Walker to construct the tower, with 570 people having worked on-site to date and a total of 22,000 cubic metres of concrete used to get the final tower to its 33-level height.

The base building is on track to be complete by July 2018 and tenant fit outs by November. Tenants of Tower 5 include Transurban, NBN, Grant Thornton and The Executive Centre. There remains only one small suite on level 21, bringing the occupancy up to about 99 per cent.

Collins Square is one of the largest commercial office developments in Australia. Spanning an entire city block, it consists of five commercial office buildings, the Lantern Building and the refurbished historical Good Shed, providing a combined total of more than 250,000 sqm of commercial space and 10,000 sqm of retail area.

Once completed, each building within the Collins Square development will achieve a 5 Star Green Star Rating. All the completed buildings have achieved a minimum NABERS Energy 5 Star Rating with some achieving close to 6 Stars.

The final configuration of the site will include over 75 lifts, three megawatt of power generated on site from tri-generation systems and solar plant, rainwater storage and reuse systems throughout for amenities.

Many of the expected 20,000 people to eventually work at Collins Square are utilising the precinct’s many award winning restaurants, cafes and bars, staff wellness facilities, supermarket, as well as childcare services, pharmacy, dry cleaning and much more.
