MELBOURNE'S $200M RIALTO PROJECT NEARS COMPLETION AFTER 10 YEARS OF PLANNNG
Written on the 22 May 2017 by Ben Hall
IT'S BEEN 10 years in the planning and had at least 10 different architects and has involved the acquisition of multiple properties, and now the redevelopment of Melbourne's iconic Rialto tower precinct is almost complete.
What have been the biggest issues you've faced with this massive redevelopment? It is an older building and you've been acquiring nearby properties.
The biggest challenge is dealing with Rialto itself. It's a 30-year-old building but we're 85 to 90 percent occupied so we've got close to 4,000 people in the building so it's been major, major renovations on the ground floor and throughout the tower.
