Tower closer to start date

Tower closer to start date Image

Preparations are underway for the start of a new commercial tower in LaTrobe St.

Hoardings have been erected around the site at 1000 LaTrobe St, with developer Poly predicting a start to construction of a 24-storey office tower in August.

The building includes five levels of podium parking and 31,000 sqm of A-grade office space.

Poly Victoria executive director Steve Wang predicted the development would redefine commercial projects.

“This is our first development of this stature in Victoria. It incorporates an elevated design which will offer tenants a workspace like they’ve never experienced before,” Mr Wang said.

“Outside of the CBD precinct, Docklands is the largest working hub in Melbourne and there are tenants in the area who are expanding at a rapid rate.”

“In line with all Poly developments, the design encompasses a strong ecological emphasis for both tenants and locals to appreciate,” he said.

“1000 LaTrobe St has been carefully crafted to be positioned as one of Docklands’ most iconic buildings to date.”

The 1000 LaTrobe St location offers ease of access to Melbourne transport services, positioning it as an ideal prospective for businesses looking to upgrade or expand their office facilities.

The Digital Harbour site received a planning permit from former Liberal planning minister Matthew Guy in 2013 for a 23-storey office tower. In 2016, attempts were made to reposition the offering as a 28-storey apartment tower.

In December 2017, Development Victoria granted Poly a two-year permit extension to start the project.
