313 Spencer Street occupies a highly prominent location at the corner of Spencer and La Trobe Street in Melbourne. The property is well known as the former Melbourne City Mail Centre. The site is positioned on the north west corner of the Hoddle City Grid and provides an important gateway opportunity between the Melbourne CBD and Dockland precinct.
The Victoria Police – City West Police Complex comprises a purpose built 12 level A Grade commercial office building with premium services providing approximately 27,500 sqm (NLA) including 2 level basement for 300 cars.
The new building includes the Melbourne West Police Station, an office component that provides a generic workplace environment meeting the office requirements of the specific business units of the Victoria Police.
The $230 million complex to be built on the edge of Melbourne’s CBD will provide Victoria Police with a modern, operational facility that will greatly enhance police service delivery across the city.
Due to be completed in 2015, the complex will become home to the Crime Department, Intelligence and Covert Support Department, and the Melbourne West Police Station – some 1,600 police members and staff.
Uniting Melbourne’s Crime, Intelligence and Covert Support Departments this state of the art eco-friendly building is badged with a 5 Star Green Star Office Design Rating (V3), a 4.5 Star NABERS Energy Rating and rainwater harvesting capability. The world’s best formply – Armourform F27 supplied by Big River – was used for the building core due to its superior strength and greater spanning capabilities.
