Walker Corporation has secured tenants at its $3 billion Collins Square project access to The LUME – the world’s biggest digital art gallery.

Founded in 2006 by Melbourne’s Bruce Paterson, with a permanent base at the nearby Melbourne Exhibition Centre, the culture-related attraction is hoped will create more opportunities for its Collins Square tenant clients “to engage in a workplace conducive to productivity and creativity making time in the office enjoyable and the commute into the CBD worthwhile”.

“Collins Square is thrilled to partner with The LUME Melbourne to give our tenants access to a range of immersive experiences at the world’s largest digital art gallery, including their incredible new Leonardo Da Vinci experience and popular Pilates and yoga classes,” group executive, Investment Assets, Emily Carroll, said.

“Like the LUME Melbourne, we’re committed to making art more accessible and enjoyable for everyone, with Collins Square home to a significant collection of contemporary art in Melbourne,” she added.

The LUME contains 3000 square metres over four floors.

“We’re so happy to partner with Collins Square to bring enriching cultural and wellness experiences to their tenants, who are only a stone’s throw away from us over the river,” according to head of Commercial for the arts group, Jennifer North (story continues below).

“We’re dedicated to fostering creativity and wellbeing – and this collaboration allows us to extend our shared experiences and programs to a wider audience,” she said.

“As workers continue navigating the return to office environments post-COVID, prioritising wellness initiatives and superior tenant experiences is paramount,” she added.

Mr Paterson made headlines in February buying a renovated double fronted home from the Argyrou family, founders of builder Hickory, for c$17 million – an Elwood record.
