Australian energy provider AGL has struck a deal for more than 6000sq m at Mirvac’s 664 Collins Street, making it a fully-occupied building before it has reached practical completion.
AGL will join Pitcher Partners and Fujitsu in the 26,000sq m office tower, committing to lease over across two floors.
Construction on the 100% leased building is expected to be completed by mid-2019.
In June last year, Mirvac successfully sold down 50 per cent of the building to an investment vehicle sponsored by Morgan Stanley Real Estate Investing for $138 million.
The building was developed to feature a 5-star Green Star and 5-star NABERS environment, featuring elements like effective space utilisation, waste management and energy efficient systems.
Mirvac head of office and industrial Campbell Hanan said 644 Collins Street was developed to respond to the changing forces of work and employee experience, which demands more from the built form than ever before.
“644 Collins is designed to incorporate leading smart technology and real-time data collection to improve workforce utilisation and efficiencies, while creating an intuitive working environment.”
Having committed to operating out of 644 Collins Street, AGL will also supply and install a 180kW rooftop solar array to offset base building consumption.
Upon practical completion, 664 Collins Street will be the final stage of the Southern Cross Station complex.
The development embraces best-in-class end-of-trip facilities and on-site parking. It will also feature an eight metre digital artwork in the lobby, developed in partnership with Swinburne University students.
Moving day for AGL, together with Fujitsu, will be in September 2018 with Pitcher Partners set to occupy over 9,000 square metres and more than three levels of the building in June 2018.
