NAB will “mothball” two major office towers for the foreseeable future, including its Docklands headquarters, as Victoria faces increasing restrictions amid a possible second outbreak of coronavirus.
The bank notified staff today that from July 14 it would indefinitely stop using its offices at 700 Bourke Street and 800 Bourke Street, known as the Rubix Cube due to its colourful exterior, in the Melbourne Docklands. The two buildings house a large proportion of NAB’s 34,000 strong workforce.

All staff who have been working out of those two buildings in recent weeks have been asked to relocate to bank’s older office tower at 500 Bourke Street, in the Melbourne CBD.
The announcement came as the Victorian government this week increased restrictions on ten postcodes ordering residents living in those areas from leaving home unless it is for school, work, shopping or medical care.
