Banking giant Westpac has been confirmed as the newest tenant for Brookfield Place Tower 2, as one of the city’s newest office towers moves towards full occupancy.
Earlier this year, Charter Hall put Westpac’s current headquarters up for sale, with an expressions of interest campaign to close by the end of the month.
Speculation that Westpac was on the verge of moving first surfaced midway through last year, with Brookfield Place Tower 2 firming as likely destination by December.
Brookfield Property Partners today said Westpac would take 6,300 square metres of space in the tower, on levels two, three and four.
Brookfield also said international law firm Holman Fenick Willan would occupy 1,200sqm on level 15 of the tower.
A building application was lodged earlier this month for to fit out Gilbert + Tobin’s 1,400sqm of space on level 16, valued at $4.2 million.
Brookfield said the new tenants would move in by the end of the year, while a further 1,000sqm was currently under offer.
Brookfield Property Partners head of asset management Danny Poljak said the landlord was delighted to welcome the new tenants.
“It has been a positive reinforcement of the demand for premium space in a challenging leasing environment and it is an encouraging sign for the Perth CBD office market,” Mr Poljak said.
