Dexus is leveraging its retail capabilities by repositioning and enhancing the city retail offer across the Group.

This approach creates value through enhancing tenant amenity and contributes to the vibrancy of the cities in which the properties are located.

Dexus approach

  • Dexus adopted a precinct planning approach which identified potential for retail enhancements in line with developments in the properties’ broader precincts. This included properties owned or co-owned by third party clients located in:
    • Martin Place, Sydney – a centrally located precinct which is undergoing a rejuvenation
    • Circular Quay, Sydney – a precinct that will benefit from the new light rail infrastructure
    • Melbourne CBD

Value created
