405 Bourke Street

405 Bourke Street is a new commercial development located in the heart of the Melbourne CBD. Designed by renowned architect Woods Bagot, the project is set to feature a 39-storey, 200 metre building combining office and retail spaces.

The tower is to be built in and around the constraints of the site. Existing car park structure, light easements, 399 Bourke Street building and the existing east retail and car park areas all provided constraints to the design as well as the constructability of the proposed tower. The northeast portion of the tower cantilevers over 399 Bourke Street via the usage of 3m by 12m deep trusses that are a distinctive feature of the building.
