555 Collins Street is a cancelled skyscraper that was to be located on Collins Street in the Melbourne CBD, Australia. Developed by the Fragrance Group, the mixed-use development included plans for a 298-metre-high (978 ft) tower, consisting of 91 stories; as well as comprising office, apartment and hotel space. Should the skyscraper have been built, it would have become one of the tallest buildings in Australia. Plans for the skyscraper were officially cancelled in April 2016.
Previously developed by The Stamoulis Property, the proposal initially comprised an 404-metre-high (1,325 ft) office tower, over 82 floors. The proposal required final approval from the Victorian Planning Minister Matthew Guy; however, this proposal was cancelled in July 2013.
It is the former site of the Federal Coffee Palace, which was demolished in 1973, for the modernist office block Enterprise House.
