Ode - Building Retention Works UnderwayConstruction Update - July 2016 - Published July 2016
With demolition completed in May, building retention works are well underway at Ode. All piling is now complete, with capping beam construction in progress and the basement bulk excavation to follow in the coming weeks.
The next phase of construction will see the historic facade of the building rebuilt and restored to its original glory with input by artist Matthew Johnson (the same artist who designed the iconic façade for The Icon, St Kilda) in collaboration with Paces in-house architecture team. The original façade will pay homage to the history of the local area, and provide a stunning exterior frontage for the development.
Project completion is scheduled for May, 2017
