Dexus today announced that it has secured Macquarie Bank (Macquarie) and Wood plc (Wood) at 240 St Georges Terrace in Perth, providing further evidence of improving market fundamentals flowing through to leasing activity.
Dexus has leased approximately 22,870 square metres of the office space that Woodside will vacate in December 2018, resulting in 51% of the building being now leased, including:
- Wood across 9,198 square metres of space on levels 1-4, with the lease commencing February 2019
- Macquarie across 3,311 square metres of space on the top two floors of the building, with the lease commencing July 2019
Dexus Head of Office & Industrial Leasing, Chris Hynes said: “We are pleased to be able provide Macquarie and Wood with a new address for their State offices, and satisfy their needs for a well-located, premium quality workplace offering superior amenity.
