Mills Oakley will relocate from secondary grade offices at the St James building at 121 William Street, to fully refurbished Premium-grade space at 530 Collins Street, late next year.
GPT head of office, Tony Cope, says the 10-year lease supports the GPT Group’s decision to reposition 530 Collins Street, which was the Australian Stock Exchange building between 1992 and 2006.
“The repositioning encompasses the new corporate entry and retail amenity which opens in the first quarter of 2009, the extensive on floor refurbishment of each available floor and entering into an Energy Performance Contract targeting a Nabers Energy rating of 4.5 stars by 2010.”
Jones Lang LaSalle leasing director Stuart Colquhoun and Rainer Paterson say the Mills Oakley pre-commitment was secured 12 months ahead of ANZ Bank’s move to a new $478 million office at Docklands.
Mills Oakley CEO John Nerurker says the company has undergone substantial change in the past few years, and the move to 530 Collins Street will help celebrate that.
