Mirvac relocates to 200 George Street

May 2015 Carolyn Cummins

Mirvac has backed its own development by taking up a lease in its new 200 George Street site for the next 10 years.
It will be a new era for the diversified developer, which relocated to its 60 Margaret Street head office about 10 years ago from the original home at North Sydney.
Mirvac will join Ernst & Young, which, with 81 per cent, is the anchor for 200 George Street, now under construction.
The new tower at 200 George Street is owned jointly by Mirvac Property Trust and the AMP Capital Wholesale Office Fund, but Mirvac has earmarked the adjoining properties at 210-220 George Street for sale as part of its capital "recycling" strategy.

The moves come amid speculation retail bank ING Direct was looking at the current Mirvac space when it relocates from 140 Sussex Street in the coming year.
However, the area will become the next construction zone in Sydney with the planned redevelopment of 1 Carrington Street, nearby Wynyard train station and the revamp of George Street into a pedestrian-only thoroughfare.
Agents said leasing activity is on the ascendancy throughout Sydney as companies look to take advantage of the deals being offered in new buildings, with the secondary sites in demand for residential conversions.
Cushman & Wakefield Australia national research manager Dr Alex Pham says the improvement in demand for office space in 2015 has been driven by the financial and business service sectors, supported by accommodative economic policies.
"Looking forward, with interest rates remaining at record lows and the government recently committing to a $5.5 billion stimulus program for small businesses, we expect leasing conditions to improve over the remainder of the year," Dr Pham said.
Mirvac chief executive Sudan Lloyd-Hurwitz said the move to the five floors of George Street was to "create an environment to support our people to work more effectively and collaboratively".
"Space in 200 George Street has been expertly designed to promote high levels of interaction and information sharing. Similar to our award-winning 8 Chifley office tower, floors at 200 George Street will be linked via a central atrium to create a vertically connected light-filled environment that supports flexibility, teamwork, collaboration and communication," Ms Lloyd-Hurwitz said.
The premium-grade 200 George Street will comprise a 37-storey commercial office tower of about 38,700 square metres and is due for completion early next year. It was designed by architects Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp.
