An iconic Melbourne landmark in the heart of mid-town

Located on Melbourne's renowned Collins Street, Rialto is at the heart of the city’s emerging mid-town. It is a vibrant and ever- evolving business precinct ideally located between the traditional city centre and the city's waterfront at Docklands. It is the location for many of Melbourne's big names in finance, law, media, investment, consulting and technology.

About Rialto
Rialto has rich history that dates back to the city’s gold rush era of the late 1800s – a time when Melbourne’s identity with prosperity and culture began and continues to thrive there today.

The first Rialto building (1885) was named so for its Venetian Gothic architecture; a unique period style often described as “refined grace”. Today, the original architecture can be found within the InterContinental Hotel Rialto and Traditional Gothic architecture at the precinct’s heritage building, York Butter Factory, on King Street.

In 1981, Grollo Group Australia entered into a joint venture with St Martin’s Properties, a London-based company with significant commercial property ownership worldwide, to develop the Rialto site on the corner of Collins and King Streets. Inspired by Rialto’s history, the partnership sought to create a visionary building that would evoke aspiration and success.
In 1986, Rialto completed construction of its towers becoming the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere. The mirrored towers stand gracefully in the city landscape and respectfully integrate with its precincts heritage buildings at ground level.

It has been home to some of the country’s most successful businesses over the past 30 years and remains the only privately owned commercial CBD precinct in Melbourne – a unique position that allows greater scope for its innovation, exclusivity and service to tenants.

In 2011, Rialto pioneered the first digital hyper local community for an office building in Australia. The place-making innovation and technology provides Rialto's 3000+ professionals with an exclusive concierge service, social networking and knowledge-sharing interactions across its business community.
Today, a new era has begun at Rialto. The joint venture of Grollo Group and St Martins Properties has invested $100M in a world-class design and regeneration of the famous precinct. Key features of the project include:
  • A new low-rise building that will 'wrap' the corner of Collins and King Streets and feature a uniquely Melbourne restaurant and bar destination on its rooftop.
  • New retail spaces will occupy ground level and attract quality and luxury brands to the precinct.
  • New exclusive dining and quality cafes.
  • Over 6000 sqm of additional office premises
The Rialto Regeneration Project will be carried out over a number of stages until its completion in November 2016 to coincide with Rialto's 30th anniversary.
