Roberts Co to build 28-storey tower following ProBuild acquisition

Construction has officially commenced on a $190 million commercial office building on Little Collins Street, which is set of be one of the largest strata office builds since the pandemic began in 2020.

Roberts Co will build Golden Age’s commercial office building 130 Little Collin, following the company’s acquisition of ProBuild’s Victorian operations.

Demolition works are now complete, with construction expected to be completed in Q1 2024.

Golden Age Managing Director Jeff Xu said it was welcome news to all involved in the project.

“We have every confidence that Roberts Co will deliver a superior product due to the experience and calibre of its history, past projects, as well as the retained former ProBuild project team,” he said.

Roberts Co CEO, Alison Mirams said, “We launched Roberts Co five years ago with a mission to build a better way and we are excited to carry this through into Victoria, including works on 130 Little Collins, as part of the Probuild acquisition. We look forward to completing this project with our Victorian team, consultants and subcontractors.”

During the development cycle, the project will create 343 jobs and will provide retail tenancy activation to Coromandel Place.

The project has been designed by a collaboration between Cox Architecture, Hecker Guthrie and Jack Merlo.

Levels 2 to Level 27 consist of column-free floorplates offering sun-drenched office spaces with maximised floor-to-ceiling heights of 2.7m to create an environment that promotes productivity, with an additional wrap-around garden terrace on Level 8.

130 Little Collins Street will be a building of high environmentally sustainable design with certification targets of 5-Star NABERS design potential, 5-Star Green Star Design and As-Built, in addition to WELL Certification as a means of improving the health and wellbeing of its occupants.

The project is 70 per cent sold with most purchasers being owner-occupiers.
