Emporium Redevelopment

The Emporium redevelopment involved demolition and rebuilding of two thirds of a city block at the heart of Melbourne’s retail core, extending between Lonsdale Street and Little Bourke Street. RBG overcame the challenges and complexities of the demolition and new build presented, particularly given the retention of significant heritage façades on both Lonsdale Street and Little Bourke Street. The Emporium development introduced 43,856 square metres) of new, state of the art retail floor space in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD.
