Melbourne Open House: One Spring Street

One Spring St is on the corner of Flinders and Spring St and has some of the best views of the sporting precinct.  Being a sports addict I wanted to go into this building on Open House day to see the views of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG or just the ‘G’ to locals) and Rod Laver Arena (home of the Australian Tennis Open and a major concert venue).

We were taken up to the 15th floor to see the view.  The guide kept wanting us to look at the view of the Dandenong Mountains but Mum and I were more interested in the sporting venues.

The Shell sculpture outside 1 Spring Street.  The building was originally tenanted by Shell Corporation.  When they left the building they wanted to take the sculpture with them to their new building but the sculptor wouldn’t allow it because he said it was made for the building not Shell Corporation.
