24 September 2013 — Frasers and Sekisui House have released their A-Grade 100 Broadway commercial offering at the $2 billion Central Park precinct.
The developers say the release of the 26,000 square metre building is a deliberate signal to the marketplace that the development program is ready to turn its attention to the site’s commercial precinct.
Designed by Foster+Partners, in conjunction with Australian architects PTW, 100 Broadway features 2100 sq m floor plates and a host of green credentials, most notably the connection to Central Park’s two megawatt trigeneration plant.
“This means that tenants will have access to alternative sources of power, which translates into a high level of power source security and reliability – a critical requirement for many tenants, especially those with high-density IT demands”, said Frasers chief executive Guy Pahor.
CBRE will be handling the leasing campaign, and said there was strong interest from a broad range of tenants attracted by Foster+Partners design, the building’s efficiency, Central Park’s amenity and proximity to Sydney’s train, bus and soon-to-be developed light rail system.
Frasers and Sekisui House have appointed Calder Consultants to provide specialist expertise in designing collaborative floor space and activity-based work environments, which they recognise as a growing trend.
Construction is scheduled to commence in 2014 with completion in early 2016.
