International share registry and shareholder management firm Link Group has inked a nine-year lease at office tower QV1, taking the building’s occupancy rate past 90 per cent.

QV1 co-owners Investa Property Group and Eureka Real Assets today announced Link Group would relocate its 270 staff from Central Park, as part of a move to standardise its office accommodation across the country.

The lease deal, covering floors 11 and 12 at QV1, was brokered by Sheffield Property Group, on behalf of Investa and Eureka.

Link Group national head of procurement and facilities administration, Danny Sindrivanis, said QV1 really stood out during the company’s office search.

“The base building refurbishment to the floors is exceptional and certainly raised the overall quality of the building to match any other premium-grade building in the Australian market, not just Perth,” Mr Sindrivanis said.

“The floors offer large, column-free space, which is able to better support Link Group’s business structure and provide flexibility for any future change the business might experience.”

Eureka Real Assets fund manager Brett Dillon said there were just three tenancies available for lease at QV1, with a comprehensive refurbishment program to be completed early next year.

The redevelopment works comprise the construction of a new public plaza on the ground floor, to be known as The Grounds, including a range of premium food and beverage retailers.

Additional amenities in the building itself include a 300-bike storage facility and the first commercial office in Perth to offer a community garden, complete with chickens and beehives for tenants.

Investa Perth general manager Tom Simurina said the QV1 co-owners were committed to invest in facilities known to be desirable for tenants.

“With the refurbishment of QV1’s office floors, retail plaza and new childcare and end of trip facilities, we are ensuring the building’s premium position in the market is maintained,” he said

Other prominent tenants at QV1 include law firms Herbert Smith Freehills, King & Wood Mallesons, Allens and Clayton Utz, as well as global oil and gas giant Chevron.

The Link Group deal takes the 64,064 square metre QV1’s occupancy rate to 93.9 per cent, with more than 2,500 workers residing in the building daily.
