101 Collins Street has unveiled its latest upgrade for its tenants.

The multi-million-dollar, high-end facility, called ONE, features a resort-style spa and wellness experience which has been designed to emulate the amenity of a six-star hotel.

Over 500 bike racks and 512 personal lockers have been created to cater to the rising number of cyclists and tenants who are choosing to walk, ride or run into work.

Designed by Australian architects Gray Puksand, the new facility comes with finishes of terrazzo stone, light and dark marble vanities, timber veneers and beautiful fabric walls featuring heavily in the opulent reception lounge.

The design features marble-clad “hydration stations” and ventilated drying rooms, 45 luxurious shower facilities with a dedicated towel service, individualised grooming stations complete with GHD hair straighteners, Parlux hair dryers and curated hand soaps and amenities by Australian made artisan brand Leif.

Brett Dillon, head of funds management at AXA Investment Managers, says the new facility reflects the standing of 101 Collins Street as the pre-eminent office address in Melbourne’s CBD.

“The modern workplace has undergone a dramatic shift in recent years with the advent of unique agile and flexible spaces with wellness in mind. To respond to this, we have created the new End of Trip Facility to support the evolving needs of workers while embodying the prestige that 101 Collins Street has always stood for.”

Gray Puksand lead designer for the project, Dale O’Brien, said the design of the new facility had leaned heavily on the modern end user’s daily experience.

“A key design element from the outset was creating volume of space, with good circulation and high ceilings.

"Space is a commodity like no other, offering freedom and privacy.

“Research has shown when you integrate these luxury aspects into end-of-trip facilities there tends to be a spike in user uptake, especially from female users, which has added value to an already exceptional modern experience provided by 101 Collins Street.”

High-profile tenants such as Allens Linklaters, Goldman Sachs, J.P Morgan, and Herbert Smith Freehills are just some of the names that occupy the building’s 57 storeys.
