Collins Square is one of the country’s top commercial developments with a total of five office towers and the refurbished Goods Shed South.

The $2 billion Collins Square project is the largest of its kind currently under development in Australia. Five architecturally and technically brilliant towers combine with the refurbished historic Goods Shed and world-class restaurants and amenities to establish Collins Square as the influential capital of Melbourne’s evolving CBD.

With 200 metres of prominent Collins Street frontage, Collins Square offers a corporate address and an expression of architecture demanded by global leaders. Leaders in their fields such as Marsh Mercer, CBA, Australian Taxation Office, Maddocks, Pearson Publishing, Link Group, Transurban, Regus, Global Carbon Capture & Storage Institute and Sladen Legal are already tenants.

This trend will continue when KPMG and BDO arrive later this year.Forecasts predict more than 46,000 people will use Collins Square daily, enjoying the seamless integration of commercial, retail, public and civic spaces in one bustling precinct.Showcasing the work of acclaimed architectural firms – Bates Smart, Hassel Studio and Woods Bagot - each commercial tower here is designed to achieve a 5 star NABERS energy rating, whilst also delivering highly flexible and iconic works spaces with large floor plates.

With a construction value (including fit-outs) of approximately $420M, Tower Two has been designed by award-winning architects HASSELL studio, responsible for numerous new generation buildings in Australia and around the world. The tower is currently under construction with Brookfield Multiplex, and is scheduled for completion in May 2016.

Tower Two provides 38 storeys of office accommodation with floor plates ranging from 2,100sqm to 2,700sqm. Flexibility of the floor plate design enables both traditional and activity based working principles to be adopted with ease.

Anchor tenant KPMG will be moving to agile working in their new offices in Tower 2, quite a departure from their current cellularised office workplace. Tower Two will enjoy spacious light-filled lobby with soaring voids, designed to impress those using the buildings daily, as well as those visiting for the first time.

While the lobby's scale sets the tone, the detail in our design includes hand-cut stone, woven-carpets and European furnishings - a true luxury and contemporary hotel approach. Stone floors and a dramatic ceiling detail greets those entering the lobby, with its grand proportions.

Another impressive feature of the Tower Two lobby will be the John Olsen 6 x 8m work 'King Sun', commissioned to create a grand focal point for Collins Square, revisiting themes from his celebrated pieces housed at the National Gallery of Australia.

The Olsen piece draws inspiration from images of solar flares provided by NASA and is the largest piece from the artist since 'Salute to the Five Bells', created in 1982 for the Sydney Opera House.

Commissioned to create a grand focal point for Collins Square the 6 x 8m work revisits themes from his celebrated ‘King Sun’ piece housed at the National Gallery of Australia.

Olsen has specifically created a bright work filled with yellows, vermillion and oranges in attempt to bring his sun to Melbourne.

This epic bright yellow, geometric work by Sydney sculptor Dion Horstmans took inspiration from an F18 jet breaking the sound barrier and creates a landmark entrance to the Collins Square precinct.

Constructed from over 100 separate pieces of welded tubular steel the commissioned piece titled ‘Supersonic’ is an electrifying installation that encourages interaction within the public space.
