Financial services company Netwealth has signed a 10-year lease agreement to secure 2,700sqm of prime Melbourne office space at Dexus’ 180 Flinders Street project.
They join engineering giants John Holland, flexible workspace firm Hub Australia, Cox Architects and SXIQ in acquiring a slice of the exciting CBD development.
Netwealth Managing Director, Michael Heine, said: “We are delighted to have finalised this transaction with Dexus.”
“180 Flinders Street is a unique building that seamlessly blends the past with the future and perfectly meets our future needs,” he said.
The move comes in the midst of a pandemic which has thrown the city’s use of office space into doubt, though Mr Heine said that the deal is part of a wider vision in line with the company’s innovative values.
“Netwealth’s continued growth and focus on innovation means moving into 180 Flinders Street will provide an outstanding opportunity to create a workspace meeting the post COVID-19 needs of our staff,” he said.
“We have designed a flexible workspace providing for an agile, connected and collaborative environment.
Dexus Office Leasing GM, Patrick Stronell described his delight at securing the deal and praised Netwealth’s ability to look beyond the current economic turmoil.
“We are pleased to be able to facilitate Netwealth’s growth by relocating them within our portfolio,” he said.
