Spring Place: Facilities tour

John Wardle Architects 2018, Bates Smart 2019

Description

Spring Place uniquely combines three buildings of different design eras.

271 Spring Street is the latest addition. The new building address is an interpretative brick portal set between the two historic buildings with a contemporary office tower elevated above. This building has received several awards including Development of the Year in the Urban Developer Awards (2019) and also a Commendation for Commercial Architecture, Award of Excellence from AIA Victoria in 2020 (CTBUH).

50 Lonsdale Street is built over Little Leichardt Street (functioning now as the ground level foyer) and a 34-level high-rise commercial tower above. The precinct is close to some of Melbourne’s most respected social, cultural and environmental landmark destinations, bringing people together to celebrate the very best of the city. Madame Brussels Lane, which runs right through the precinct, plays host to artisan eateries, alfresco coffee houses and delightful specialty retailers.

From heritage-listed gardens and theatres to Melbourne Park and the MCG, the precinct’s location provides the perfect balance of lifestyle amenities, right in the heart of our exciting city.
