Corporate growth continues apace

Corporate growth continues apace Image

Docklands continues to grow its corporate presence, with insurer QBE and International Workplace Group’s co-working brand, Spaces, among the latest newcomers.

Lendlease reports that QBE will join anchor tenant ANZ in Victoria Harbour’s latest commercial building at 839 Collins St.

QBE will occupy around 6000sqm across three floors and will move approximately 400 employees from 628 Bourke St by mid-2019. ANZ has already leased 26,500 sqm of the building.

Designed by award winning architect Denton Corker Marshall, the building’s floorplate designs give clients the flexibility to scale their workplace operations up or down without the need to lease extra space.

At Melbourne Quarter, Lendlease says Spaces has secured 7000sqm across two buildings.

Spaces will occupy one floor at One Melbourne Quarter and more than 4000sqm over two floors at Two Melbourne Quarter. It will also utilise the business lounge facilities in each building’s lobby as extensions of its workplace.

Spaces’ members will also have access to the precinct’s wi-fi enabled Sky Park.

There will be over 700 flexible workstations available when Spaces moves into One Melbourne Quarter in May this year and Two Melbourne Quarter once it is complete in mid-2020.

The precinct will also be the Victorian home of AMP and Energy Australia, which will join Arup and Lendlease.

Spaces’ model allows customers to pay only for the space they need, scaling operations up or down to boost employee productivity in their choice of work environments.

At nearby Collins Square, newcomers include NBN Co, Mars Australia, The Executive Centre and IQ Group.

Among new retail offerings are 8 Street and Carl’s Junior at The District Docklands and Sergy Boy and Peddler at Melbourne Quarter.
