ANZ has signed an agreement with Lendlease to house more than 2000 staff in a new major building in Docklands at 839 Collins Street.

The Big Four bank will be the anchor tenant - leasing 26,500 square metres - at the new building, expected to be completed in the first half of 2019. It will be a 6-star Green Star environmental rated building. 

It will be adjacent to ANZ’s global headquarters. 

ANZ Group general manager - property, Kate Langan, said: “Having two adjacent buildings across one Docklands location will enable us to create a single ANZ campus that will address future workplace demands while also allowing people to work together more easily and creatively.”

“This is the last available commercial building in Victoria Harbour which features the highest concentration of Green Star-rated buildings in Australia. We think it will be great for our staff as well as having significant environmental benefits,” she said.

The new lease follows the sale of ANZ’s office tower at 100 Queen Street Melbourne to GPT Wholesale Office Fund, which the bank is leasing back with an initial term until June 30, 2019.

ANZ has a long history in Melbourne. Docklands is home to ANZ’s global headquarters while the bank’s National Trust listed historic heart at 388 Collins Street, the Gothic Banking Chamber and Verdon Chambers (the old Bank Manager’s Residence), have been a recognised part of the city’s urban fabric since 1886.
