The development application for Charter Hall’s $1.5 billion 555 Collins redevelopment has been lodged with the Victorian Department of Planning.

Charter Hall purchased the site on the corner of Collins and King Street in October 2018.

With the adjoining site at 55 King Street, which is also owned by Charter Hall’s rime Office Fund, it encompasses a combined 4,620 square meters.

The design was created in partnership with Australian multi-disciplinary firm Cox Architecture and global design and architecture firm Gensler.

The first phase will include 35 levels of Premium Grade, technology enabled office space across approximately 45,000 square metres.

Simon Stockfeld, Charter Hall’s Regional Development Director said the building will be one of the city’s most sustainable office buildings.

“Our approach to workplace design is entrenched in extensive research into what tenants truly want and need, now and in the future,” Stockfeld said.

“Through this people-centric approach, we are committed to creating workplace experiences which are designed to foster community, an instinctive way of working and ultimately result in a better workday for our tenant customers.

“The vision for the site is to create a workplace experience like no other, where people will feel connected, inspired and engaged with their working day, and we are excited by this innovative methodology and how this development will shape the future of workplace.”

CPOF Fund Manager, Matthew Brown said: “CPOF is actively growing its existing $5.4 billion portfolio of high quality assets.

“A redeveloped 555 Collins will further enhance CPOF’s portfolio quality and total return metrics and deliver our Fund investors a coveted new Premium Grade office building in the tightly held western core of Melbourne’s CBD, a location favoured by major corporate, legal and government occupiers.”

Charter Hall has appointed JLL and Colliers as conjunctional leasing agents for the project.

Completion is targeted for mid-2022.
