Voyager tops out
Mirvac’s latest $300 million residential tower at Yarra’s Edge Voyager has topped out as it draws closer to completion.
Rising at more than 130 metres tall, the “topping out” of the 43-level residential tower at 172-190 Lorimer St in Docklands, which includes 315 apartments, is expected to be celebrated with a formal ceremony before the end of 2020.
Mirvac CEO and managing director Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz said Voyager’s construction program had not been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing for the topping out to occur on schedule, despite a reduction in the number of workers allowed on site due to state government restrictions.
“Although this remains an area of focus as Melbourne recovers from its extended lockdown period, our team has been able to effectively and efficiently manage these constraints and deliver on overall program timeframes for an anticipated settlement in spring 2021,” she said.
Ms Lloyd-Hurwitz said that despite the economic uncertainty, apartment sales had remained consistent with an increased demand from local owner-occupiers.
Development Victoria’s CEO Angela Skandarajah said it was proud of its partnership with Mirvac and had been great to see Voyager come to life at Yarra’s Edge.
“This has been a challenging year for the industry and we congratulate Mirvac on the milestone and on its commitment to Docklands,” she said.
