435 Bourke St will be a $1 billion cutting-edge commercial office tower for the city of Melbourne in response to the evolving workplace conditions in the wake of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Architecturally designed by the multi-award-winning Bates Smart, 435 Bourke St will set a new benchmark for sustainable office development and design, being one of the first office towers in the world to feature a “solar skin” facade. The tower is proposed to comprise approximately 60,000 square metres of premium commercial office space across 48 levels, with 1,300 square metres of retail space, 116 car parks, a sky garden and several landscaped open-air or mixed-mode terraces. The commercial precinct will amalgamate the recently demolished 140 and 150 Queen Street and 27 McKillop Street sites with the yet-to-be-demolished 423 Bourke Street site, and is anticipated to serve as a “vertical village” for more than 5,500 city workers.
In line with Cbus Property’s commitment to Net Zero Carbon, which has been fast-tracked to 2022, 435 Bourke is designed to achieve Net Zero Carbon in operation, with 20 per cent of its fully electric base building electricity requirements generated on site by its solar skin design. The balance of the building will be powered by off-site renewable electricity.
435 Bourke is also targeting a 6 Star Green Star New Buildings rating and a Platinum WELL certified rating. Construction commencement is anticipated for 2022.
