100 Collins street shopfront in danger

100 Collins Street, Melbourne’s first ‘glass box’ office building – shopfronts in danger.
A win for the streetscape of Collins Street, Melbourne: all the shop windows of 100 collins street,designed by JA LaGerche, are intact from 1955 when the building opened. Submissions on the proposed design conversion to a bank were recently heard, including those from Docomomo members, and the new shopfront design has now been modified to be far more sympathetic to the original and its retention.
