Seven17 Bourke St
This building marks the intersection of two different urban grids, expressing them in its bold and strong architecture. The new mixed use development combines A-Grade office space, retail, car parking and a 290 rooms hotel in a simple architectural concept.
The office tower has a design rating of 5 stars Green Stars and 4.5 stars ABGR. The strong architecture expresses its very simple concepts creating varied spaces at different levels of the property, from the Ground floor to the Level 4 Podium. The pedestrian bridge, designed as if the corner of the building has been pinched and pulled across Wurundjeri Way reinforces the links to the CBD and offers to the community a secure, landscaped and weather sensitive thoroughfare to Docklands.
Retail activated laneways, created through the property, expand the best of what Melbourne has to offer. The iconic nature of the final form contributes to the Docklands precinct by providing a landmark that has already created a strong sense of appropriation by the community to a part of Melbourne long neglected.
