The AMP Building has a unique presence and character which gives it prominence and authority even amongst much larger buildings. The corner site at Collins and Market Streets is unique, with Market Street becoming a pedestrian oasis as an extension of the major open space at 447 Collins Street. With its warm stone facade and engaging Early Modern character, 425 Collins Street evokes the elegance and comfort of affluent late Twenties Melbourne, and the beginnings of modern Australian architecture.
The present day retail/hospitality component of the building is accessed via Collins St which opens out into an expansive double height cutting edge food and beverage venue. Modern, high end fittings, lighting and decorations juxtaposed against the double-height heritage sandstone lined banking chamber sets a contemporary and luxurious tone throughout. Eight (8) upper levels of office accommodation are leased to a range of professional tenants. Typical office floor plates comprise 577sqm and benefit from outstanding natural light via three elevations. Whilst several floors provide a conventional office layout, the recent refurbishment of level 3 (to include a ‘Soho’ themed refurbishment including exposed concrete floors and designer lighting) saw an abundance of interest from the tenant market reinforcing the building’s ongoing relevance in an advanced age, despite its historic veneer.
