Notable features

1 Collins Street has a step up form culminating in a corner tower effect. Design keys come directly from the existing heritage buildings 1 Collins Street literally rises from. 1 Collins Street is built in sympathetic materials which give it a stone like cladding. The windows are square in shape and the mass is divided such that it appears as a collection of buildings of varying heights and sizes. The podium on Spring Street attempts to relate to the scale of the smaller neighbouring buildings.

1 Collins Street represents one of the earliest post-modern office towers developed in the Melbourne city centre, and helped influence as well as inspire many of the larger projects built in the 1991 property boom.
