Seven Network signs on to Melbourne Quarter Tower

  • 8 Feb 2024
Major media company, Seven Network will relocate its Melbourne operations to Lendlease’s mixed-use Melbourne Quarter precinct in early 2025.

Relocating from 160 Harbour Esplanade at Docklands, Seven Network will occupy c.4,500sqm across levels 3 and 4 of Melbourne Quarter Tower, the precinct’s flagship commercial building that is currently under construction.

Seven’s new headquarters will feature a state-of-the-art workplace and a high-tech news broadcast studio that will support the network’s digital future.

Located on Collins Street and opposite Southern Cross Station, Melbourne Quarter Tower will span 34 levels and is scheduled for completion by mid-2024. It will be the final commercial building delivered in the Melbourne Quarter precinct.

Designed by global architects Woods Bagot, the building’s design will provide large light-filled floorplates and allow daylight to spill into the precinct’s public spaces, while adorned with an impressive rooftop.

The completion of Melbourne Quarter Tower will see an additional 3,000sqm of vibrant retail added to the precinct with food and beverage outlets. 

It will also see the creation of new laneways including a direct link between Flinders and Collins streets, connecting the precinct’s commercial, retail and residential offerings, including Lendlease’s new build-to-rent development in delivery.

Melbourne Quarter Tower will target leading international standards in wellness and sustainability, with a 6 Star Green Star Design & As Built, 5 Stars NABERS Energy with renewable electricity to the base building, and a WELL Platinum Core and Shell rating.

Seven Network will join Melbourne Quarter Tower’s anchor tenant, Medibank, one of Australia’s largest private health insurers.

Workers and visitors alike will enjoy access to some 7,000sqm of technology-enabled green spaces and parks in the precinct including Melbourne Quarter’s famed elevated Sky Park.

Once complete, the Melbourne Quarter precinct will comprise approximately 150,000sqm of agile commercial space for over 14,000 employees, and more than 3,800 residents.

National Pension Service of Korea (NPS), one of the world’s largest pension funds, acquired a 100% interest in Melbourne Quarter Tower in 2021. The investment is managed on its behalf by Lendlease.
