Victoria University Tower, Melbourne, VIC
The development of the VU Tower will complete the current vision for the Queen Street campus. A planning permit application has been submitted.
VU Tower will comprise around 43,300sqm gross floor area over 32 levels and allow VU to consolidate a number of existing CBD facilities into an up-to-date building that will become the major component of its vision for VU City Queen Campus.
VU Tower is a building that represents the forward thinking aspirations and the vision of the University. The VU Tower is a modern and evolutionary way of delivering a high density campus on a city site footprint. Its sculpted shape will add a new dimension to the precinct, as well as responding and integrating with the immediate surrounding urban massing.
Whilst the project is developed to house a number of faculties with approximately 10 upper levels of academic and support offices and work spaces, there remains a need for flexibility of floor layout within the various proposed faculty and office levels for a “future proofing” of the building. This will allow VU the flexibility to explore new faculties within the grouping of faculty clusters.
