View from the Top: 101 Collins Street

By Melbournecurious
As part of Melbourne Open House 2010, the boardroom on level 23 of the 101 Collins Street skyscraper was opened up to the public. Completed in 1990, the tower is often cited as the epitome of the 1980s extravagance that saw a handful of opulent, postmodern skyscrapers built in Melbourne. On the day, we were ushered into the lavish boardroom of Macquarie Bank on the twenty-third floor. While the skyscraper has 57 storeys in total, the views offered on level 23 were simply breathtaking!View from the Boardroom on Level 23View from the Top: 101 Collins Street
