Construction begins at Mirvac’s Olderfleet development at 477 Collins Street, Melbourne
15 May 2017
On Monday 15th
May, a brisk Melbourne morning, Mirvac celebrated the start of construction at
its latest premium grade office in Melbourne, Olderfleet at 477 Collins Street,
with a sod turning on site.
Lord Mayor of Melbourne,
Robert Doyle; Deloitte Chairman and Victorian Managing Partner, Tom Imbesi;
Deloitte CEO, Cindy Hook; Mirvac CEO and Managing Director, Susan
Lloyd-Hurwitz; and development partners attended the event marking the
significant milestone for Mirvac’s Melbourne portfolio.
Olderfleet will be one
of Mirvac’s largest commercial developments in Australia once complete and is
on track to be delivered in 2020, with demolition and concrete piling already well
underway. The 40-storey office tower is designed by Grimshaw Architects, rising
from the unique 1880s facades of the heritage buildings along Collins Street.
“The sensitivity of
the Olderfleet development incorporating the heritage façade with a modern
tower was a challenge and one that has produced a great connection between the
two buildings. The development will encompass 58,000 square metres of premium office
and retail space, one that will push the boundaries of workplace innovation,
sustainability and heritage integration and interpretation.
Olderfleet is committed
to a 5 Star Green Star rating, a 5 Star NABERS energy rating and is a targeting
Platinum WELL certification.
This milestone is one of many for Mirvac’s office portfolio in
Melbourne, including the topping out at 664 Collins Street next week and the
completion of Riverside Quay ahead of schedule in December last year.
