Perth’s Exchange Tower secures key leasing deals in tough market

Exchange Tower has bucked the market trend with its leasing activity in Perth's challenging office market.

The vacancy in the building has dropped below 15%, an improvement from the rate of more than 37% earlier this year.

Exchange Tower is a 40-level, premium-grade office tower located just off St Georges Terrace in the heart of the Western Australian capital and in close proximity to Elizabeth Quay and Perth’s major shopping malls.

As part of the ongoing investment in Exchange Tower by joint owners the AMP Capital Wholesale Office Fund (AWOF) and Western Australia-based property investor Primewest, works have commenced for a significant refurbishment of the ground floor lobby with plans underway for upgrades of the forecourt and lifts.

The world’s sixth largest accounting group, RSM, has committed to lease 3,281 square metres of space over three high-rise levels in Exchange Tower and will also take signage rights after negotiating a long- term lease in the building.

RSM’s move is one of four major new deals in Exchange Tower, with international engineering group ARUP, multinational technology company Fujitsu and national law firm Moray and Agnew also relocating to the building.

ARUP is leasing 1,500 square metres of space on level 14, Fujitsu is taking 1,309 square metres on level 9 and Moray and Agnew is leasing 1,092 square metres on level 30.

Other recent new tenants include Quayside Chambers, Viva Energy and WTP. The moves follow a targeted leasing campaign managed by Ian Edwards, Knight Frank.

Exchange Tower is already home to some of Perth’s leading commercial and public institutions including Patersons, Morgan Stanley, Bell Potter, Allen & Overy, Bain, Ministerial & Parliamentary Services, Mitsubishi, Mitsui and Knight Frank.
