447 Collins Street
LOCATION / MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA
PHASE / DESIGN DEVELOPMENT
SIZE / 1,900,000 SF
In May 2014, SHoP won an international competition to design a landmark development on Melbourne’s renowned Collins Street. The project for 447 Collins, a prominent site in the city’s central business district, has been celebrated as the first true mixed-use development in Australia. In addition to its offices, residences, retail and hotel, greatly expanded public spaces will be part of a network of open plazas taking shape throughout downtown Melbourne, a larger-scale counterpoint to the city’s famous system of intimate, art-filled “laneways.” Catalytically urban, public-spirited, and fresh—447 Collins will help complete the transformation of the surrounding area into a vibrant, around-the-clock community while contributing to the world-class image of the city. 447 Collins is a 5-star Greenstar project, and is anticipated to receive the Australian Excellence designation for sustainability.
