A MELBOURNE ICON

Rialto is an iconic Melbourne landmark. It has a 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.

REFINED GRACE

The first Rialto building was named so for its distinctly Venetian Gothic architecture; a unique period style often described as “refined grace”. Today, the architecture can be found within the InterContinental Hotel Rialto and the precinct’s heritage buildings on King Street.

AN INSPIRED PARTNERSHIP

In 1981, Grollo Group 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, Grollo completed construction of Rialto, delivering the tallest office building in the Southern Hemisphere. The mirrored towers stand gracefully in the city landscape and have been home to some of the country’s most successful businesses, innovators and leaders over the past 30 years.

A BUSINESS LIFESTYLE EXPERIENCE

Cornerstone to the Rialto experience is its inherent ‘nature’ to constantly evolve the premium business lifestyle experience. It is a place that features the dining excellence of Vue de Monde and The Merchant as and the first in Australia to introduce a hyper local online community and a concierge service for all.

REGENERATING A LOCAL ICON

The joint venture of Grollo Group and St Martins Properties has made a significant $100M investment in a world-class design and regeneration of the famous precinct. A new low-rise building will ‘wrap’ the corner of Collins and King Streets and feature a roof-top planned for a uniquely Melbourne dining and bar experience. New spaces for offices, retail and dining will showcase Rialto as the heart of Melbourne’s emerging new ‘mid-town’. Works will be carried out over a number of stages until completion next November 2016 to coincide with Rialto’s 30th anniversary.
