Leasing momentum has continued in Investa’s landmark 567 Collins Street building, with three deals across more than 3,200sqm of office space finalised recently.
Jointly owned by Investa Office Fund (IOF) and Investa Property Group (IPG), the new Premium grade building incorporates net lettable area (NLA) of approximately 55,000sqm across 26 levels of office and retail space. Its soaring, glass encased foyer comprises a lobby, café and popular retail destination, ‘The Grid’.
At the juncture of Melbourne’s CBD, Southbank and Docklands, 567 Collins Street is located 100 metres from Southern Cross station, providing direct access to train, tram and bus routes and major arterial roads.
Prominent serviced office provider Regus has committed to 866sqm on a 10 year lease. Software aggregator, Connective will relocate to 2,059sqm on an eight year lease and Victory Management will lease 350sqm on the top floor.
“Regus chose to establish a venue at 567 Collins Street due to the quality and visual appeal of the building and its convenient location between the traditional Melbourne CBD and Docklands,” said John Henderson, CEO, Regus Australia and New Zealand.
Tenants at 567 Collins Street are amongst the highest users of Investa’s INSITE service portal, with almost 1,500 registered users just nine months after being launched in the building.
The INSITE by Investa program is designed to engage tenant businesses and their staff via a range of events and value-add services which aim to save tenants time and money and enhance their work day. At 567 Collins Street, tenants enjoy access to an onsite and virtual concierge service, dry cleaning, airport transfers, meeting rooms and catering, with regular, complimentary events planned throughout the year.
“The building offers an unrivalled combination of connectivity and convenience thanks to its sought-after location in Melbourne’s midtown CBD, and a superior range of tenant focused services,” said Andria Carniato, General Manager, 567 Collins Street, Investa.
End-of-trip facilities at 567 Collins Street include secure bicycle parking, showers and lockers catering for tenants who actively commute to and from work or exercise during the day, and to encourage tenants to adopt a healthy lifestyle.
“Tenants value the extent to which these elements contribute to the attraction and retention of quality staff. They were integral to the building’s strong occupancy rate on completion and continue to drive interest from quality tenants,” said Ms Carniato.
567 Collins Street’s key tenants include CPB Contractors, Corrs Chambers Westgarth, Jemena and a Virgin Active Health Club.
Tony Landrigan of Colliers International, who facilitated the three most recent leasing deals said, “Interest in the building’s remaining office space is strong. The outlook for commercial leasing in Melbourne’s CBD is solid and there is a limited number of floors remaining in 567 Collins St. We expect these factors to drive strong competition from tenants looking to secure space in Melbourne’s only new-generation Premium grade office building.”
567 Collins Street has achieved a 5-Star Green Star Office Design v3 rating and is targeting a 5-Star NABERS energy rating.
