Ambulance Victoria has rented a 3152 square metre office at Burwood East’s Tally Ho business park – one of suburban Melbourne’s biggest lease deals this year.
The refurbished space, levels two and four of 12 Wesley Court, was occupied by software giant MYOB, which has been progressively relocating to Cremorne, where it will be headquartered from 2020.
It hasn’t been offered for lease since 2001.
JLL’s Joshua Tebb was the agent.
