9 Yarra

9 Yarra is a 15 storey office tower. As one of the first buildings in the Forrest Hill precinct it played a defining role in the developing streetscape character. It is black and angular and assert a presence by jutting out over the street. It is strikingly different from its residential neighbour, which is white and has a softer profile. It is a composition of tectonic elements pushed and pulled. A shared podium and new pedestrian arcade join the two towers. This arcade connects Claremont Street to the South Yarra Station by joining the already completed Stage 1 arcade between Macmillons Publishing and Duttons on Claremont Street. A third stage will connect Chapel street to the South Yarra Station via Daly Street.
