Northbridge goes hi-tech

THE attraction of Northbridge as a centre for new hi-tech companies has been highlighted by a number of leasing deals struck by NSC Corporate.

Highway 1, Datacard, PBA Professionals and, more recently, Mirage Technologies are a few of the IT companies seeking properties, NSC Corporate director Andrew Campbell said.

Mirage Technologies has signed a five year lease deal to occupy the three-level, 780 square metre Old Scotch building at 74 Beaufort Street.

“Mirage is one of a new generation of IT companies beginning to dominate the commercial property market in Perth,” Mr Campbell said.

“The IT sector now accounts for around 25 per cent of NSC’s total leasing activity compared to just 10 per cent during 1998.”

He said a number of these firms were interested in Northbridge.

“In many respects, Northbridge may begin to mirror important socio-economic trends which are occurring in the US as a result of the explosion in growth in the IT sector,” Mr Campbell said.

“Northbridge offers an exciting 24-hour living and working environment which US research indicates is very attractive to people working in the new hi-tech economy.”
