Victoria Police shares $650m view from southern hemisphere’s highest helipad

The Docklands precinct is the first purpose-built for the occupier since the Russell Street Police Headquarters in 1943.

Victoria Police has shared images of the view from its helipad – the southern hemisphere’s highest, it added – at the Victoria Police Centre, which reached practical completion in October.

The 40-level office at 311 Spencer Street, Docklands, at Melbourne CBD’s north west tip – is part the force’s first purpose-built precinct since Russell Street Police Headquarters in 1943.

The $650m tower stands beside 313 Spencer St, a 12-storey facility completed for the occupier five years ago.

Both were developed by Cbus Property; #311 is jointly owned with Singapore’s Keppel REIT.

The helipad has been heavily promoted as a major feature of the Woods Bagot designed #311 – and will be utilised by the Critical Incident Response Team, Special Operations Group and Bomb Response Unit (story continues below).

The office is designed with 65,500 sqm of A-grade space, 600 car parks in a four floor basement and a landscaped forecourt.

Victoria Police pre-committed for 30 years on the basis of it being delivered turn-key.

The building contains a media centre and space for Victoria Police Museum and the federal police.

Connected with #313 via a mix of bridges and pathways, the precinct accommodates 7000 officers and support staff.
