Taking education to new heights with VU City Tower
ISPT, in partnership with Victoria University has officially opened the landmark education facility, VU City Tower. The 29-level vertical campus in Melbourne CBD is now the southern hemisphere’s tallest education facility.
A reimagined campus of the future
The campus consists of two buildings, the heritage listed Former Records Office at 295 Queen Street, which has been retained and developed into VU’s Law Campus, and the new VU City Tower which can accommodate up to 5,400 students. We also own the neighbouring heritage-listed Land Titles Office which was acquired for future restoration and development
Jason Lourensz, Acting Regional Manager, Development Services (Southern Region) says
“We’re incredibly proud of VU City Tower, our first education project and an industry-leading building. The tower delivers on the aspirations and vision of the University and highlights ISPT’s ability to deliver safely and as promised, regardless of unprecedented industry challenges. We look forward to welcoming teachers and students to bring the precinct to life.”
Letitia Hope, Partnership Specialist says the precinct is a prime example of ISPT’s approach to placemaking
“The relationship we’ve developed with VU demonstrates the deepening of our partnership approach. The VU City Tower is designed for a new style of learning, meeting the current and future needs of staff and students as education facilities evolve.”
Designed by Jackson Architecture with interiors by Woods Baggot, VU City Tower brings customer and community experience to the forefront. Student-centric spaces throughout the building encourage connection and collaboration while public integration zones open the building up to the broader community.
VU City Tower is a 5-star green star rated, industry-leading building that consolidates a number of VU’s former facilities into the one vertical education facility while revitalising this iconic part of the CBD.
