Prominence preserved

101 Collins

Home to some of Melbourne’s most high-profile tenants, 101 serves as a hub for influential business exchange.

Since it was completed over thirty years ago, 101 Collins has remained an iconic and prestigious office tower in Melbourne.

Bates Smart has carried out significant upgrade works to the commercial building throughout the years to ensure the landmark building retains its leading reputation.

The completed revitalisation has reimagined the entire ground floor experience, leveraging the building’s existing strengths and enhancing its diverse offerings for the next generation. Upgraded façades on Collins Street and Flinders Lane transform the entrance experience, enhance connection and re-affirm the sophisticated building’s presence on both significant street frontages.

The ground floor evolution respectfully builds on the many unique architectural elements that define 101 Collins, such as the columns and pools, along with the bronze detailing, gold leaf and rich stones, while adding contemporary upgrades that respond to the needs of today and tomorrow.

To continue to offer unrivalled amenity for tenants and guests, the ground floor refurbishment introduces a variety of human spaces designed around the health and wellbeing of occupants. Two new lounges with custom designed furnishings allow occupants to gather informally, while an urban oasis encourages contemplation and interaction with nature.

Renowned for its public artworks and exhibitions of acclaimed artists, collaboration with an art consultant for new site-specific commissions maintain 101’s influential role in Melbourne’s art community, while enhancing the arrival experience for visitors.
