Docklands’ tallest tower tops out

Since 2005, Devine’s Victoria Point, at 128 metres, has been Docklands’ tallest residential tower.

The 43-level Voyager building – at this stage, Docklands’ tallest residential tower – has topped out.

Mirvac is expected to settle the project’s 315 apartments this spring.

Its chief executive, Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz and head of retail, Stuart Penklis, with planning minister Richard Wynne and Development Victoria group head, Precincts, Geoff Ward, attended a ceremony on March 11, to mark construction reaching its full height – 138 metres.

Building didn’t stop during COVID.

Docklands’ biggest residential skyscraper to date is the 42-storey (128m) Victoria Point, near Marvel Stadium, which Brisbane’s Devine completed in 2005.

Victoria Police recently moved into a taller 40-floor office abutting Southern Cross train station at the CBD border with the precinct.

Poly Australia is developing a 23-level commercial building at 1000 La Trobe Street.

Mirvac is shortlisted to replace a prime site opposite Treasury Gardens – at the other end of town to Docklands – with several towers (story continues below).

More city fringe and middle ring apartments coming: Mirvac

The Mirvac complex is designed with a ground floor lounge.

“The success of Voyager, as well as our recently completed Apartments of Tullamore buildings (in Doncaster), has given us confidence in ongoing demand for quality, well located apartments in Melbourne supported by valued amenity, as we work towards announcing new city fringe and middle ring apartment developments over the coming months” Ms Lloyd-Hurwitz said.

A resident-only dining room looks over Melbourne Star, which sold last month.

“We understand the need to offer a range of living options with a focus on flexibility, liveability and sustainability and this is at the forefront as we expand our Victorian apartments pipeline,” the executive added.

Voyager contains home-office apartments, as well as the usual one, two and three bedroom configurations.

An activated rooftop – which Mirvac said will be the first of its kind in Docklands’ Yarra’s Edge – will be available exclusively for residents.

The developer’s pipeline of Victorian apartments is worth $1.4 billion.
