THE owners of the $750 million South Wharf development, at the point where Southbank meets Docklands, may have snared another major office tenant from St Kilda Road.
 
Car leasing giant Leaseplan is understood to have leased about 4,000 square metres at the 12-level South Wharf office tower, part of a massive riverfront development that also includes the new DFO South Wharf, and a 396-room Hilton Hotel. 

Sources say another undisclosed tenant is in negotiations to lease the balance of the office space, but this could not be confirmed with owner Austexx.
 
Leaseplan would relocate from offices at St Kilda Road, following the lead of container line giant ANL, which was the first tenant to office tenant to commit to South Wharf last August. Kraft also announced it would relocate to South Wharf, vacating a Port Melbourne office originally developed for Boeing Industries ten years ago.
