Facts

  • Reclad in aluminum in 1992 after pieces of the concrete facade started falling off.
  • To make way for the development of Nauru House in the 1970's two buildings with high heritage values were demolished on Collins Street, amid much public outcry, to provide the tower with a Collins Street adress. The proposed redevelopment will reinstate the built edge to Collins Street by filling in these two gaps.
  • Height increased by 7 metres in 2001 with the addition of a mechanical penthouse.
  • Melbourne's tallest building from 1977 to 1980.
  • This building was developed by and is still the prized possession of the government of the small Pacific island of Nauru.
  • Plans have been approved for the redevelopement of the forecourt of Nauru House consisting of a glassed in atrium with roof top garden at the base of the tower fronting Exhibition Street, an 15 storey office tower at 76-80 Collins Street and a 7 storey mixed use tower at 84 Collins Street.
