565 Bourke Street has long been associated with Melbourne’s business world, from its early days as the Gollin & Company building trading oil and fruit to 2018 where owners Challenger are undertaking a major repositioning of the asset to be an exciting and vibrant workplace for the next generation of office occupiers.

Gray Puksand have commenced work on this stunning refurbishment, where the opportunity exists to secure modern office accommodation across whole or part floor tenancies.


The beautiful Gollin & Company building is a rare Queen Anne style commercial building designed by Charles D`Ebro and built in 1902. The building is one of architectural significance and the skilled composition makes great use of its corner position.

The Gollin & Company building once housed a general merchant & importer of the late 19th and early 20th century, with a diverse business handling kerosene and oil distribution and shipments of fruit from Mildura to England.

In 1989 it was sensitively incorporated into an adjacent, major office development designed by Perrott Lyon Mathieson and in 2018 will be further enhanced by owner Challenger and architects Gray Puksand to position it as a modern work environment with an ode to its long history on Melbourne’s iconic Bourke Street.

565 Bourke Street is well located between King & William Street at the business end of Bourke Street, situated only a few minutes stroll from Melbourne’s law courts and bustling Collins Street.

The building is well serviced by all forms of public transport with a Tram ‘Super Stop’ located at the front door and Southern Cross Train Station only a block to the West.

Staff will enjoy the abundance of retail amenity surrounding the building, including Goldsborough Lane, St James Square, Woolworths directly across the road and a multitude of other food & beverage offerings in the immediate precinct, whilst Bourke Street mall is only a short walk away for all your fashion retailers.

“Details, when they are successful, are not mere decoration. They do not distract or entertain. They lead to an understanding of the whole of which they are an inherent part.”
