Step off the thoroughfare into a central calm
Midtown sits on the corner of Melbourne’s most high profile retail district. Overlooking the iconic Bourke Street and positioned on the busy Swanston Street walk, the historic Art Deco building takes pride of place in Melbourne’s tapestry.
Originally built in 1930, the structure has maintained a delicate balance between historic and ultra-modern architecture and presents as a slick, open plaza on one of the city’s most prominent thoroughfares.
Step off the busy street and indulge yourself in Midtown’s amenities. With a tram super-site at the doorstep, linking the marketplace to wider Melbourne you are literally in the city’s most central point.
For tourists, Midtown Plaza is a great place to consolidate, with a convenient foreign exchange kiosk, a travel agency and an affordable, chemist superstore – all under the one roof – making the plaza a great service stop for out-of-towners.
High profile cafes, restaurants and takeaway food outlets offer a welcome respite for shoppers and tourists. Thai, Japanese and Malaysian street food share the open space with warm, homely comfort food and great coffee.
Midtown is also the home to one of the largest experimental Telstra Discovery Centres in the southern hemisphere, a virtual playground for tech-heads. Alternatively, curious shoppers can explore Daiso, kitsch Japanese thrift store in the basement of Midtown, housing over 200,000 quality Japanese products.
A calm, sleek and well-appointed communal marketplace in the middle of Melbourne town, Midtown provides metropolitans with a pleasing reprieve from the whirr of the city.
