Located adjacent to ANZ’s global headquarters, ANZ will lease 26,500sqm of the 6 star Green Star environmental rated building that is expected to be completed in the first half of 2019.
Commenting on the new lease agreement, ANZ Group General Manager Property, Kate Langan said: “Having two adjacent buildings across one Docklands location will enable us to create a single ANZ Campus that will address future workplace demands while also allowing people to work together more easily and creatively.”
“This is the last available commercial building in Victoria Harbour which features the highest concentration of Green Star-rated buildings in Australia. We think it will be great for our staff as well as having significant environmental benefits,” Ms Langan said.
The new lease agreement follows the sale of ANZ’s office tower at 100 Queen Street Melbourne to GPT Wholesale Office Fund, which the bank is leasing back with an initial term until 30 June 2019.
ANZ already has a long and proud history in Melbourne. Docklands is home to ANZ’s global headquarters while the bank’s National Trust listed historic heart at 388 Collins Street, the Gothic Banking Chamber and Verdon Chambers (the old Bank Manager’s Residence), have been a recognised part of the city’s urban fabric since 1886.
