It was initially constructed with the assistance of American Vincent Ponte, the AMP Society and ANZ Bank, the world renowned New York firm of Architects, I.M. Pei and Partners and the Melbourne firm of Bates, Smart and McCutcheon as associate architects.
Collins Place was built in seven stages, taking approximately ten years to complete at a cost of $250 million dollars. The complex opened in May, 1981.
