Located at the intersection of William and Bourke Streets, this towering building is ideally located in Melbourne's financial and legal district.
140 William Street is a 41-storey heritage listed iconic commercial building. Constructed between 1969 and 1972 by local Melbourne firm Yuncken Freeman, and constructed of concrete, steel & glass, the local architects sought technical advice from renowned American architect Fazlur Khan.
At the time of construction, 140 William Street was Australia’s tallest steel framed building and the first to use a “total energy concept” – the generation of its own electricity using BHP natural gas. The building pioneered the structural application of steel and concrete, leading to open floor plates - now a standard feature of high rise office buildings.
The building has an onsite café, and tenants have access to bike storage and change room facilities.
Tenant and visitors enjoy magnificent 360-degree views across Melbourne CBD skyline which takes in many of the cities landmark attractions including; Eureka Tower, Rialto Tower, Melbourne Star, Yarra River, the Botanical Gardens, Crown Casino and Southbank.
Building occupants include Melbourne Law Library, Vic Bar, Law Institute of Victoria, JLL, SMS Management and Infrastructure Victoria.
