Leading Cities

Contributing to economic prosperity and sustainable urban development across Australia's key cities

Our capacity to create value is tightly linked to the overall growth and prosperity of the cities where we operate.

One of the key megatrends impacting our business model is the continued growth of cities and urban densification. There is a mutual relationship between these growth drivers and the role that Dexus can, and does, play in shaping our cities for the future as desirable places to live, work and play. This is consistent with our strategy which is centred on delivering superior returns from high quality real estate located in Australia’s major cities. 

The Leading Cities objective of our Sustainability Approach involves developing world-class office buildings that deliver customer-focused, sustainable workplaces and which enhance the amenity and vibrancy of central business districts (CBDs). 

The location of our properties across key Australian CBDs means that their function is closely linked to the broader services, infrastructure and amenity provided by the city as a whole. For this reason, our success is tightly linked to the success of Australia’s major cities. 

Cities deliver economic prosperity through enhancing opportunities for collaboration and supporting the exchange of knowledge and ideas. We contribute to this prosperity through the delivery and management of world class buildings that attract high calibre customers whose businesses support local, regional and national economies. We expand our reach and engage local communities through collaboration with authorities and industry associations, and work together with peers and other stakeholders to share insights and lift urban development standards.
