Frasers Property Australia, Sekisui House Australia and Impact Investment Group have secured the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) as a new commercial tenant at Central Park, Sydney.

UTS will occupy the commercial space in One Hundred Broadway, on the corner of Abercrombie Street and Broadway in the $2 billion Central Park master planned community in Chippendale.

UTS’s Graduate School of Health (GSH) intends to relocate to One Hundred Broadway, from where it will provide postgraduate courses in the disciplines of pharmacy, clinical psychology, orthoptics and physiotherapy, along with new programs such as genetic counselling, Indigenous health and speech pathology, as they are developed.

The School also plans to operate a multidisciplinary primary health care clinic at Central Park that supports its teaching and research in these disciplines but which will also be of benefit to the community.

UTS will lease the entire commercial space of approximately 5,500 square metres over a 15-year term with two ten-year options. The commercial space, known as One Hundred Broadway, spans six levels.

Central Park’s Project Director, Mick Caddey, said the UTS Graduate School of Health was an excellent tenant for the commercial space at One Hundred Broadway.

The Graduate School of Health has about 500 senior, postgraduate students.

Up to 300 students will attend the Central Park premises during semester in addition to 80 full-time researchers and clinical staff, along with patients and clinical research participants.

UTS Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Resources), Patrick Woods, said a number of compelling factors including it being ideally located in relation to its growing city campus.

Postgraduate students, researchers and staff in turn will benefit from proximity to the amenities at Central Park, including the five-level Central Park Mall, which features over 50 specialty retailers, a Palace Cinema (opened late 2017) and Woolworths, two childcare centres, the Kensington Street dining and lifestyle precinct, and the precinct’s public park, Chippendale Green.

Currently under construction, the DUO development, which includes One Hundred Broadway, is due for completion in late 2018. The Graduate School of Health expects to begin operating there in mid- 2019.
