OUR STORY

The icon of Melbourne’s skyline, Rialto reflects the bold belief that the sky is no limit.

PROVEN, AUTHENTIC, WORLD CLASS

When Melburnians think of their city’s skyline, they think of Rialto— that iconic silhouette attached to memories of growing up in Melbourne.

Today, Rialto continues to stand as a symbol of the city’s growth, aspirations and sophistication.

The iconic building’s recent, grand-scale regeneration delivered state-of-the-art facilities, stellar additions to Rialto’s already-exceptional dining offering and new world-class workspaces.

In addition, investment in technology, security infrastructure and energy features have sharpened Rialto’s leading edge, cementing its status as an unrivalled address for first-class businesses.

A RICH HISTORY

Ambition is built into Rialto’s bones. Commissioned by Patrick McCaughan, an entrepreneur capitalising on Melbourne’s land boom of the 1880s, the original Venetian Gothic-style Rialto building was finished in 1891.

Fast-forward almost 100 years Rialto opened its doors in 1986 after a four-year construction. Signalling an engineering triumph as Australia’s then-tallest building, Rialto redefined the skyline, becoming a beacon of business excellence and ambition. Today, Rialto—the product of a joint venture by Grollo Group and St Martins Properties—is a testament to the courage, conviction and vision of its owners, who have owned and operated the iconic building from the very beginning.
