EY to shift Melbourne HQ

Also today we are reporting Google is eying a Docklands office to lease.

Professional services giant EY will quit the office it pre-committed to 20 years ago for another built during that construction cycle closer to the heart of town.

East End Place includes 121 Exhibition Street (left) and 111 Bourke St.

Charter Hall and GIC scored the coup – the tenant will fill 20,000 sqm at 111 Bourke Street, part of a two building, c121,200 sqm complex formerly known as Southern Cross Towers or SX1 and SX2, recently vacated by Australia Post.

The A-grade space at 111 Bourke Street.

Since buying the assets from Blackstone and Brookfield in 2022, the landlords have renovated, rebranding it East End Place.

Knight Frank’s Simon Hale and Hamish Sutherland are the marketing agents.

EY’s initial lease at 8 Exhibition St, in the city’s southern end, was for 23,000 sqm (story continues below).

Australia Post quit Southern Cross Towers for a Burnley office (artist’s impression).

That asset is co-owned by GPT’s Wholesale Office Fund and Singapore listed Keppel REIT.

Also today we are reporting Google is eying a c3100 sqm tenancy at a $1.2 billion Docklands tower being developed by Lendlease but to be held by the National Pension Service League of Korea.
