A 27-level high state-of-the-art commercial office building on Little Collins Street has been approved by the City of Melbourne.

It is set to redefine the traditional office space by creating a vertical community with a strong emphasis on sustainability, technology, health and well-being.

Developed by Golden Age Group and featuring an all-star design team by Cox Architecture, Hecker Guthrie and Jack Merlo, 130 Little Collins Street will combine retail and office spaces, including state-of-the-art amenities, private end of trip facilities and sustainable garden terraces throughout.

Golden Age purchased the site in 2019 from the Uniting Church, where it served as the Uniting Church’s Victorian and Tasmanian headquarters for the last 52 years since the building was built in 1967.

Golden Age Group Founder and Managing Director Jeff Xu said 130 Little Collins Street reimagines the typical commercial office building and in a post-COVID world, is more relevant than ever before.

“The typical commercial building has been turned on its head as a result of COVID; businesses have realised they can work efficiently outside of the corporate environment and they no longer want to share with hundreds of other tenants.

“Instead, we’re foreseeing a preference towards more boutique floorplans as a result of businesses scaling down their requirements for an office, coupled with something that greater emphasises lifestyle, which we’ve achieved through sustainable design, state of the art amenities and new-age technology.

“!30 Little Collins Street is more akin to a lifestyle hotel design than a typical commercial office tower,” he said.

On offer will be food and beverage offerings; a business centre; office spaces throughout; garden terraces; an airline lounge and a communal garden rooftop terrace.

With an emphasis on sustainability and wellbeing, 130 Little Collins Street will look to target 5-Star NABERS, 5-Star Green Star Design & As-Built, in addition to WELL Certification.

The project is set to launch to market in the coming months.
