101 Collins StreetEdit profile
101 Collins Street is a 260-metre (853 ft) skyscraper located in Melbourne, Australia. The 57 storey building was completed in 1991 under the design by Denton Corker Marshall Pty Ltd. Towards the end of project, with a change of developer, the foyer space was designed by Johnson Burgee. The tower is currently the 4th tallest building in Australia and the 95th tallest building in the world when measured up to the tallest architectural point which is the 60 metre tall spire. As of April 2009, 101 Collins Street is the 101st tallest building in the world. The tower contains 83,000m² of rentable space which are rented by large companies. The floor to ceiling height is unusually large for a skyscraper at 2.77 metres. The 30m lifts can reach speeds of 7 m/s. There are 414 underground car park spaces. The building contains double glazed windows with surface coated tempered glass which will increase thermal efficiency. The CRA Building was demolished for the construction of this building.
