Mirvac has secured planning and design practice Tract Consultants as a new tenant at 6 Riverside Quay, with the company taking out the top floor of the tower across 1,360 square metres.
Located in Melbourne’s Southbank precinct, Riverside Quay comprises four office buildings, including 2 Riverside Quay - purpose built for its anchor tenant, PwC Australia.
After more than 30 years at its Lennox Street address, Tract Consultants has made the move to Riverside Quay, attracted by the office location, a space that allowed the consolidation of the business on to one floor and the 190 square metre balcony overlooking the CBD.
Mirvac Group Executive of Office MPT Andrew Butler said the company will benefit from an exceptional workplace environment, as well as a retail precinct at Riverside Quay.
“This marks a busy month for the precinct with Fender Katsalidis moving into their new office, bringing 2 Riverside Quay to be fully occupied.”
The precinct is undergoing a significant transformation with a new retail precinct and public space to be built.
The single floor tenancy will provide for an integrated workplace that further enables Tract’s culture of collaboration across its disciplines.
The integrated workplace allows for the merging of the interior spaces with the spectacular landscaped outdoor terrace.
CBRE’s Caitlin Murdoch negotiated the nine-year lease on behalf of Mirvac.
“Tract Consultants’ previous Lennox Street home, which it occupied for more than 30 years was over two levels and boasted a large outdoor garden. Their relocation was largely driven by the efficiencies of having all staff on one floor,” Ms Murdoch said.
“The outdoor terrace overlooking the Yarra River and CBD was also attractive to ensure their staff still had an outdoor experience in their new office space.”
Ms Murdoch said Riverside Quay offered a prime location in close proximity to Flinders Street and St Kilda Road.
“Positioned in the heart of the Southbank cultural precinct, Riverside Quay offers a central business location close to public transport and major arterials, in addition to undergoing an exciting transformation,” Ms Murdoch said.
