Poly Australia secures permit extension for 1000 La Trobe Street, Docklands

Permit extension granted as Poly Australia plans commercial tower in Docklands

December 19th, 2017

On December 12th 2017, Poly Australia was granted a two-year permit extension by the Victorian State Government for the development of a new A-Grade office building at 1000 La Trobe Street in Docklands.

With construction of the 5,135sqm site due to commence in late 2018, Poly Australia plans to develop a 24-storey A-Grade office tower featuring approximately 31,500sqm of Net Leasing Area (NLA).

Designed by leading architecture firm Woods Bagot, 1000 La Trobe Street is the second of two A-Grade commercial office buildings to be developed by Poly Australia – with the other being 210-220 George Street in Sydney (designed by world renowned architecture firm Grimshaw).

1000 La Trobe Street will sit within Melbourne’s Digital Harbour precinct – the most accessible point within Docklands. Trams will service the precinct on La Trobe Street and Bourke Street, right on the doorstep of the building.

The entire precinct – as well as 1000 La Trobe Street – has been designed to meet high energy and sustainability targets, while the building itself aims to secure a 5-star Green Star and 5-star NABERS energy rating.

Poly Victoria Executive Director Steve Wang said the project will be one of Poly Australia’s premier buildings in Victoria, with the stunning design set to become a landmark in the Docklands precinct.

“1000 La Trobe Street will be Poly Australia’s first commercial building in Victoria, and as such we intend to ensure that it will become one of Docklands’ most impressive buildings, both visually and environmentally. Overlooking the Yarra River and the city skyline, we look forward to developing a world-class building that everyone within the Melbourne business district can be proud of,” he said.

With an 85 metre frontage 1000 La Trobe Street is set to deliver a striking visual to the Docklands skyline, and stunning views over the city and river.

As part of the design, the building will also feature a north facing external terrace dedicated to cafés and restaurants, dedicated ground floor retail, 5 levels of podium parking and 16 levels of office space.

Poly Australia intends to begin construction of 1000 La Trobe Street in late 2018.
