The Melbourne CBD’s newest Changing Place is now open in Collins Place, adjacent to the Sofitel Hotel, at the top of Collins Street.
Collins Place is managed by AMP Capital, who have partnered with the Department of Health and Human Services to deliver the new facility, which is open 24/7 with an MLAK key.
With all the features of a Changing Place, including an adjustable adult size change table, a track ceiling hoist system and central toilet with grabrails, the new Changing Place opens up Collins Place to everyone. Everyone can now work within the iconic office towers of 35 and 55 Collins Street, visit or stay at the 5-star Sofitel Melbourne, receive health and dental care in the area, and take in the vibrant retail precinct which houses the Kino Cinemas and over 30 food and fashion operators.
The investment in the Changing Places facility at Collins Place has been driven by AMP Capital’s continued commitment to social responsibility. AMP Capital’s Head of Sustainability, Real Estate, Chris Nunn hopes that it leads as an example within the Melbourne real estate market.
“We see Changing Places as a great step towards creating an inclusive built environment for city workers, residents and visitors. Thanks to the Collins Place team for driving what will be a very valuable resource to our community” Mr Nunn Said.
“Changing Places play an essential role in positive, social inclusion and encourage the participation of people with a disability in our community.
“The Victorian Government is absolutely committed to inclusion for all Victorians, and Changing Places are the Universal Design principle for making this happen.” Robert Fiske, Chief Executive Officer, Victorian Health and Human Services Building Authority.
The new Changing Places facility, located on the Ground Floor, accessible by the Sofitel Driveway, is now open. For more information visit www.collinsplace.com.au
