Amazing how a 125m building can much such a difference. Suddenly those turds either side of this aren't so noticeable.

Tower 'grid' latest Collin Street addition to west end retail space

A "grid" of retail shops on the ground floor of Melbourne's newest Collins Street office tower is almost fully leased as retailers take advantage of the fast evolving western end of the city.
Owned by Investa Office Fund and Investa Commercial Property Fund, the premium 26-level commercial tower at 567 Collins developed by Leighton Properties has secured tenants for most of the 13 spaces available.
The speedy take-up reflects the growing popularity and development of the western end of Collins Street as a viable retail precinct, agents said.

so the retail spaces in the building connect through to the rear laneway that runs through to Flinders Lane?

that is a great outcome... below is the street view from up that laneway with the building largely constructed - must be recent!

I am still a bit non-plussed about the internalisation of the retail with very limited actually facing Collins Street. Collins Street frontage is pretty much a giant entry foyer for the commercial (Docklands style).

I'm quite pleased with how this has turned out. Really makes an impact.

walked through this the other day and the ground floor retail looks really good. I still think it is a massive shame that Collins Street itself barely has anything at all facing it for the 100m frontage of this site with all activity internalised to the U shaped arcade.

one very cool thing visible in acouple of the photos above is the connection in the south-east corner of the site via stairs to the rear laneway which allows a quick cut through to Flinders Lane and also King Street (next to VCAT).

the carpark on Flinders Lane directly behind this site is ripe for redevelopment as well. very similar sized footprint. Will probably come up as a development site once a few of the other west end commercial sites are redeveloped.

"walked through this the other day and the ground floor retail looks really good. I still think it is a massive shame that Collins Street itself barely has anything at all facing it for the 100m frontage of this site with all activity internalised to the U shaped arcade"

I think that the reason the arcade has worked out well is precisely because it's all internalised. Whilst it's very shiny and corporate.. there is an authentic 'laneway feel' about it (at busy lunchtimes, anyway) which you wouldn't get along Collins Street itself.

Having outlets along Collins would potentially have diluted the whole scheme - with key tenants preferring to take an exterior plot and reducing the 'pull' of the interior.

I really like this building, and how the retail area has turned out. And I'm not just saying that because my employer is moving there in a few months!

"Authentic laneway feel"? Theboynoodle ... Really?

Yes. Don't read too much into the word 'feel'. A bunch of lunch food chains wrapped around a modern office building can only achieve so much... but what they have achieved is a tight and bustling little space which, shock horror, is perfectly pleasant to be in.

Maybe you've been there and think it's no good. If not, then you should go there (and then come back and tell us that you still think it's awful)
