1 Malop street Geelong Quintessential Equity office tower progress

Alex Delaney's picture

1 Malop street is really taking shape! After returning to Geelong from an overseas trip, the recently installed crane is a big feature in the skyline already! I didn't get a chance to upload some photos a month ago of the facading of this heritage TGM building, a point of interest for many people in Geelong but realising there was no public photos available I had a blast yesterday taking these photos.

As I see so many of you from Melbourne put lots of energy into capturing progress of many developments, I've been inspired as a highschool student from Geelong to capture this moment in Geelong's history.

With the last engine rolling off the line a few days ago and ford producing their last vehicles in their local factories in the coming few weeks, we're in a bold new era for the city and this huge feature is sure to attract attention. The building will eventually host worksafe vic head offices with the entire workforce making the move from Melbourne. Whilst in the short term the benefits may not seem massive, I am so happy to see my awesome city supported in this way with this investment.

I'm not interested in the state politics of the day, but I believe this design/site was one of the best out of a number of proposals and I'm pleased we're being supported by agencies signing up as 'anchor tenants', hopefully this attracts more private companies to occupy tenancies in the buildings, this site has about 3 floors vacant for that.

Melbourne’s architectural landscape is a wonderful juxtaposition of modern and Victorian architecture. Although the CBD has been peppered with many skyscrapers, its historical structures have won Melbourne the title of “Australia’s most European city”. Perhaps the most striking example of this juxtaposition between old and new is the Coops Shot...
