Goldfields’ $300 million, 24-level office tower on Chapel Street in South Yarra has opened its arms to prospective tenants. 

Works have just commenced on the PCA A-Grade tower at 627 Chapel Street.

It has been billed as "South Yarra’s most significant commercial development in generations," set for completion by September 2021.

 Goldfields Chief Operating Officer, Lachlan Thompson said, "a landmark development, it is the largest commercial project to hit South Yarra in decades and will change the landscape of the Melbourne office leasing market, delivering over 24,000 sqm of A-Grade commercial transport and amenity-rich space in a traditionally residential location."

“With an approximate floorplate range of 900 sqm to 1250 sqm, coupled with a building design that easily allows for interconnecting staircases, we’ve had strong interest from larger businesses with two to three-year views on their lease expiries seeking space in the 3000 sqm to 6000 sqm range."

“At the same time, we’re already seeing enquiries from smaller businesses, looking for space in the 900 sqm to 1200 sqm range, who traditionally start searching for their next home about 12 – 15 months from their lease expiry.

“This is due to the fact that current leasing options for these prospective tenants are very limited, and we expect demand from the SME market segment to strengthen even further over the next six months as we get closer to our September 2021 completion date,” he said.

Adam Spencer-Shirley, Director of Office leasing – Victoria, at Cushman Wakefield, said Goldfields’ decision to speculatively develop the site was not only a vote of confidence in the strength of the Melbourne office leasing market, but also offered genuine certainty for potential tenants.

“With no pre-commitment required to commence construction as a result of the developer’s speculative approach, prospective tenants can have complete confidence that the project will be delivered by the September 2021 deadline,” said Mr. Spencer-Shirley.
