Inspired by street culture, The End To End building by ITN Architects comprises six new five storey commercial tenancies each with an elevator, decks and car spaces.
It is crowned by three recently retired, renovated Hitachi Met trains with panoramic views of Collingwood and beyond. Rolling Stock nostalgia appears at street level in solid railway track doors, sleeper canopies and train station platform facade panels.
The building is the latest in a series of street culture inspired buildings by Zvi Belling of ITN Architects.
