555 Collins is a landmark project located at the corner of Collins and King Streets, in the south-west quadrant of Melbourne’s Hoddle Grid. The proposed building is a 47 level residential and retail development that architecturally aims to contribute to the transformation and reinvigoration of the western end of the CBD.
The building is to become an elegant addition to the picturesque streetscape of Collins Street through its unique form and façade. The tapering form of the tower at the base will create a new public realm on the ground floor with generous provisions for open space and access to the residential entry foyer and retail facilities.
The development will include approximately 625 high quality residences; comprising one, two and three bedroom apartments.
Luxurious resident’s amenities will be provided on Level 2 within the tapering base of the building, allowing for views onto Collins and King Streets. Facilities include a lap pool, hot and cold plunge pools, steam room, massage room, multipurpose studio, gymnasium, resident’s lounge, resident’s dining room and kitchen, wine room and media room allowing residents a sense of luxury and community.
555 Collins Location
555 Collins is located at the south-west corner of Collins Street and King Street in the south-west end of the Melbourne CBD. The proposed development is located in close proximity to Southern Cross Station, Etihad Stadium, Docklands and the Southbank entertainment and arts district. Collins Street is considered to be the most sought after address for business, boutique retail offerings and high-end residential properties.
Commanding views are provided from the upper levels of the building to Docklands in the north-west, the centre of the Melbourne CBD to the north-east, the Yarra River to the south-east and Port Phillip Bay to the south and south-west.
555 Collins Design Visual
555 Collins is a true Melbourne landmark development. The prominent corner location on Melbourne’s most known and loved street called for a design response that possesses a dynamic and creative spirit. The proposed development will transform this key corner site and contribute to the unique characteristics of Melbourne’s urban environment of high quality buildings, abundance of open space and bustling active laneways.
The architectural design response ties the proposed development to its prominent position on Collins Street, anchoring the building to this prime corner site. The design concept takes cues from the historical context of key corner buildings along Collins Street, which typically feature heroic expression of verticality in the round with intricate details in the formation of façade details around openings and bay windows. Bates Smart have created a contemporary vertical expression that reinforces the energy of the street corner with a meticulous attention to scale and detail in the facade fenestration. The resultant articulation creates a beguiling object that is constantly changing as seen at different angles from near and afar. The play of texture and light across the façade adds a level of excitement and intrigue to the vibrancy of the Melbourne city skyline.
The base of the building tapers inwards to create generous public circulation, activated by laneway style retail units, and access from the entry foyer to the residential apartments on the floors above. Transparency at the ground plane allows daylight to filter freely into the foyer and retail spaces and for artificial light to glow into the streets and retail laneways at night. This consistent luminance creates an urban environment that is comfortable, safe and inviting. The subtle curves at the base of the building prevent any corners on the ground plane, providing intriguing and inviting points of views to pedestrians.
High quality resident’s amenities are provided at Level 2, in the tapering base of the tower, to allow these
facilities to engage in the activity of Collins and King Streets. Facilities include a 20m lap pool, hot and cold plunge pools, steam room, massage room, multipurpose studio, gymnasium, resident’s lounge, resident’s dining room and kitchen, wine room and media room, allowing residents a sense of luxury and community.
