Construction has officially commenced on a $190 million commercial office building on Little Collins Street, which is set to be one of the largest strata office builds since the pandemic began in 2020.

The project will have created 343 jobs through its development cycle, with Probuild appointed as the builder following the successful completion of its Sky Garden project in Glen Waverley.

Once complete, the project will provide retail tenancies and aid the City of Melbourne’s laneway activation and greening strategies.

“Melbourne’s CBD strata office market has remained resilient despite the challenges of COVID-19 and is outperforming other major CBDs across the country,” Melbourne Lord Mayor Sally Capp said.

“Every dollar invested now, every worker that comes back into a CBD office, every extra job created through the construction sector has flow on benefits for all the small and medium sized businesses in our city.”
