Probuild, in conjunction with repeat client Golden Age Group and Vicinity Centres, has celebrated a momentous milestone with the completion of Australia’s largest air rights development to date – Sky Garden.
Sky Garden incorporates a 4000sqm podium garden complete with a relaxation zone, entertainment lounges, vegetable gardens, a designated children’s play area and outdoor fitness areas with the amenity provided by The Glen Shopping Centre sitting below.
Defying market odds, the Melbourne property developer and tier one construction company delivered the $450 million project within anticipated timelines despite stringent lockdown regulations across the state of Victoria.
Sam Delmenico, Probuild’s Victorian Managing Director states that Sky Garden demonstrates the commitment of both Golden Age Group and Probuild to deliver the large-scale and high-quality build,
“We’re very pleased to have completed the final stage of work for Sky Garden and are proud of our team who delivered this project on-program, to high safety and quality standards, reinforcing our strong relationship with Golden Age Group.”
Probuild prides themselves on delivering quality construction, completing Sky Garden’s structure in 142 working days, maintaining full production with no lost time during COVID-19 conditions. Sky Garden shows a high-quality building with premium services, finishes and fitments.
The Glen Shopping Centre and Sky Garden project are unique in their own rights. Constructed over one of Melbourne's iconic shopping hubs, 'The Glen', the project required an extremely high level of focus on safety. At Probuild, safety is the number one focus, committed to providing an environment that is safe despite the risks associated with working in live environments.
“being part of Australia’s largest air rights development required all of our knowhow constructing in live environments with a fully operational regional shopping centre below our construction site. We successfully completed this project minimising any disruption to the shopping centre’s daily operation” Said Sam Delmenico
Sky Garden is Melbourne’s first mixed-use development project that combines 536 apartments and an expansive garden oasis above The Glen. The integration of these two projects speaks to Probuild’s ability not only in the retail and residential sectors but also their specialisation in mixed use projects.
