Upgrades and Investment at 140 William Street has lead to a number new leases according to owner Rest.

Colliers International’s Shane Burns and Tony Landrigan, in conjunction with James Pappas and Hamish Sutherland of Knight Frank, have negotiated 11 new leases totalling more than 7,500sqm at 140 William Street

New tenants include Bank of Montreal, Law Institute of Victoria and Marble Group, among others. 

“An iconic Melbourne business destination, 140 William Street is constantly updating and evolving to ensure the building can best service tenant demand in the ever-changing Melbourne market,” Mr Burns said. 

“Progressive building owners and management consistently pre-empt workplace demands and trends to remain a commercial destination of choice, which has helped drive a highly successful leasing campaign, particularly in the past 12 months."

Over the last 24 months, superannuation owner Rest has invested in a lift and mechanical upgrade, the provision of end-of-trip facilities and new services.

Mr Pappas added, “The building has experienced great leasing success, including six refurbished whole floors – as well as securing a range of part floor tenants including Finite Group, Wonder Property, King and Whittle and NOPSEMA." 

“Further improving the buildings offering, 2018 also saw the execution of fitted part floors or small suites, responding to increasing market demand.”
