Construction begins at Olderfleet

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.
