Tower 6 announced

31 Jan 2012

Mirvac is proceeding with its Tower 6 at Yarra’s Edge with the Minister for Planning Matthew Guy making the announcement last month.

The 39-storey tower takes a new direction for residential towers in Docklands featuring ground-floor community space with less emphasis on retail.

It will have 680sqm of community space, lobby and gym, in contrast with only 280sqm of retail.

The $217 million development at 92-100 Lorimer St will comprise 200 new apartments and comes hot on the heels of Mirvac’s Yarra Point tower which got underway last year.

Mr Guy said: “The 39-storey development includes a 5-star energy-rated building, the incorporation of urban art, landscaping and ground floor activities.”

“As Docklands enters its second decade, the Yarra’s Edge development builds upon its premier location with a waterfront lifestyle in close proximity to Southbank and the CBD.

“Yarra’s Edge continues to provide for sustained investment and growth for Melbourne in an area that is increasingly becoming a new urban hub.”

“I congratulate the Department of Planning and Community Development, Places Victoria, VicRoads and Melbourne City Council for their collaborative efforts in working through the application,” Mr Guy said.

The site is located between Tower 5 to the east and Tower 8 and Point Park to the west.
