Collins Arch will bring Australia’s first true mixed-use environment to the center of Melbourne.
SHoP’s collaboration with Woods Bagot won an international competition to design a landmark development on Melbourne’s renowned Collins Street. The project, located at a prominent site in the city’s central business district, has been celebrated as the first in Australia to combine a select mix of programs to achieve the intended levels of 24/7 activation. Collins Arch is a 5-star Greenstar project, and is anticipated to receive the Australian Excellence designation for sustainability.
In addition to offices, residences, retail and a world-class 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.”
