ok deserving of its own thread

better than a rumour, but rumour until announced. ANZ has leased the office building facing Collins Street, approx 20000sqm for call centre etc. Both buildings should kick off simultaneously

waiting for media releases, one hopes we're on the money...hehehe

ANZ’s big ask excites Melbourne office market
7 Mar 2013

The Melbourne office market has pricked up its ears in expectation of a massive 20,000 square metre plus requirement for space from ANZ.

^ya put two and two together and bingo...?? Let's wait and see shall we :-) interesting that ANZ are looking for more space so soon after the completion of their head office in Bourke Street.

Observe. Design. Build. Live.

Lots of other projects I'd rather see kick started by ANZ's 20,000sqm before this mutt, but it does seem like one of the most likely candidates. Fills another hole I spose...

I'm looking forward to this building going up. It will at least get rid of that decking and make something usuable out of it.

The design seems to have undergone many changes in its time but the latest renders look promising.

so the completion date for anz tender is early 2015. at this rate no development will be able to snare the pre-commitment and build in time. collins street building has seemingly missed the boat

^^ Last I heard, ANZ seems to want to keep its call centre at its current Kings Way building. That may well change, but that was the talk there.

Can only hope someone signs up to this building so that we can see a completed SXS site.

Looks like a very cost effective solution for the site. Just what Docklands needs more of :-(

Would have thought they might have put some sort of restaurant or bar on the first level or something at least

Development & Planning

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 - 12:00
The swirl of development activity in Footscray has found another gear as new projects are submitted for approval, or are on the verge of beginning construction. Two separate planning applications have been advertised by Maribyrnong City Council; their subsequent addition to the Urban Melbourne Project Database has seen the overall number of apartment developments within Footscray in development swell to 40.

Policy, Culture & Opinion

The marriage of old and new can be a difficult process, particularly when the existing structure has intrinsic heritage value. In previous times Fitzroy's 237 Napier Street served as the home of furniture manufacturer C.F. Rojo and Sons. Taking root during 1887, Christobel Rojo oversaw operations though over time the site would become home to furniture manufacturer Thonet.

The former site of John Batman's home, Batman's Hill is entering the final stages of its redevelopment. Collins Square's final tower has begun its skyward ascent, as has Lendlease's Melbourne Quarter Commercial and Residential precinct already. Melbourne Quarter's first stage is at construction and involves a new 12-storey home for consultancy firm Arup along with a skypark.

Transport & Design

Infrastructure Victoria unveiled a new round of research into its larger programme of work dealing with managing transport demand. The authority contracted Arup and KPMG to produce the Melbourne Activity Based Model (MABM) and while it is new, it is considered fit for purpose in the strategic context.

Sustainability & Environment

Cbus Property's office development for Medibank at 720 Bourke Street in Docklands recently became the first Australian existing property to receive a WELL Certification, Gold Shell and Core rating. The WELL rating goes beyond sustainable building features with a greater focus on the health and well-being of a building's occupants.
