Construction of new Victoria Police Headquarters


In 2015, Cbus Property and Australia Post proposed to develop the Victoria Police Centre for use as Victoria Police headquarters. The $650 million project was jointly funded and constructed on Spencer Street in the Melbourne CBD.

The purpose-built, 39-storey tower was designed to achieve government-mandated sustainability ratings while providing appropriate levels of security for a police headquarters.

Using clever landscaping, urban design interventions, built form initiatives and invisible technologies, the building provides Victoria Police with a secure facility that integrates with the streetscape. Inside, global architecture studio, Woods Bagot, created a distinctive office solution to meet Victoria Police’s needs now and into the future.

Specific project requirements included:

  • 65,000m2 of net lettable area
  • A fully integrated base building and fit-out to PCA A-grade standard
  • 600 car parking spaces
  • A helipad
  • Integration with the adjacent City West Police Complex through multiple physical connections
  • Bicycle parking
  • Gymnasium
  • Internal town hub/food court
