Third Melbourne Quarter tower coming

Lendlease has submitted plans for the third and final tower, Two Melbourne Quarter, of its Melbourne Quarter project.

The 25-storey tower comprises 40,000sqm of office space and 800sqm of retail space at 697 Collins St.

Two Melbourne Quarter is designed by Woods Bagot and will aim for a six-star Green Star rating and a five-star NABERS energy rating.

Work has started on the Collins St deck above Wurundjeri Way, which will create a new public space on Collins St and connect the three towers at Melbourne Quarter.

The first tower at the site between Flinders and Collins streets, One Melbourne Quarter, is under construction and the second tower, Melbourne Quarter Tower, has been granted planning approval.

Melbourne Quarter will eventually provide office space for more than 12,000 workers across the three commercial towers.

The first restoration stage of the heritage-listed Flinders St wall, bordering the precinct, is now complete.
