About One Melbourne Quarter

Located in Melbourne’s Docklands and adjacent to the Southern Cross train station, One Melbourne Quarter is the first of seven buildings transforming an underutilized block bisected by an arterial road into a mixed-use complex on the western edge of Melbourne’s Central Business District. Bordered by two of Melbourne’s iconic streets, Collins and Flinders, the project was designed around a central public space positioned on the interior of the block, including a 2,000 square foot ‘Skypark’ elevated 10-12 meters above Collins Street, directly connected to the complex’s two office buildings and functioning as outdoor extension of the interior work spaces.

The Skypark and adjacent plaza span over Wurundjeri Way, a state highway and utilizes the existing grade separation with Collins Street to create a pedestrianized zone, capitalizing on the transit oriented location while stitching the urban fabric together above the arterial roadway. The design of the elevated open space draws upon the historic context of the site, formerly the location of Batman’s Hill, from which the City of Melbourne was first surveyed and the initial street grid was planned.
