180 Flinders is an iconic new development in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD, and is the location of John Holland’s new Victorian HQ.
This building is a landmark mixed-use development comprising an A Grade office tower, restored 1899 Ball & Welch heritage building at 180 Flinders Street, and an adjoining refurbished eight-floor building at 189 Flinders Lane.
Located in the heart of Melbourne’s thriving CBD, it has panoramic views of the city’s landmarks – Federation Square, Flinders Street Station, the MCG, Yarra River, Sidney Myer Music Bowl (built by John Holland in 1959) and the Botanic Gardens. 180 Flinders is also immediately accessible by road, rail and bicycle networks, including the new Town Hall Station (part of John Holland’s Metro Tunnels & Stations project currently under construction) and the Capital City Trail bike path.
In addition to the restoration works to the two buildings, the team constructed six new floors on an existing structure - including the provision of new lift cores – and modified an existing car park to increase capacity and improve services.
Featuring Excellent Indoor Environmental Quality (EIQ) and high levels of natural light, along with sought-after flexible floor plates between 710m² and 2,600m² NLA, the development raises the bar in modern office design. It was presented the Build4Asia 2020 award for Interior Design of the Year (Commercial).
As both anchor tenant at 180 Flinders Street and 189 Flinders Lane, occupying 7,700m² on levels 8 to 10, and builder of this new office and retail development, John Holland has worked in partnership with Dexus to realise this landmark project.
