360 Collins Street consists of 40 levels including 35 levels of office accommodation, ground floor, plaza, 3 basements and plant rooms. The building has a total net lettable area of approximately 44,000 square metres and offers approximately 130 car-parking bays. 360 Collins Street is located in Collins Street's business heartland, one of the most sought-after business address within Melbourne's Central Business District.
There is a small collection of contemporary sculptures in the courtyard of 360 Collins Street that faces Lt. Collins St. Unfortunately, there is no information about these sculptures in the courtyard. Some are obviously by the late Peter Blizzard. There is the "Ancient River Shrine", which the obelisk-like sculpture.
The striking part od the work are the sculptured bronze fossils set in stone. They frequently include an anachronistic inconsistency; there is the bicycle tyre print across the snake skeleton and a small padlock with a bird skeleton. These anachronisms and other inconsistencies, such as mounting the bronze ‘fossils’ in volcanic igneous rather than a fossil bearing sedimentary rock, are part of the charm of the work. The artist added details to the rocks that he wished were there, even though that would be impossible. But then again that's artistic licence!
