Dexus, Australia's biggest office landlord, has purchased 80 Collins precinct, a commercial and hotel development for $1.5 billion.

The 80 Collins precinct is a large-scale site located in the Eastern Core of Melbourne’s CBD.

The precinct comprises 105,000 square metres of Net Lettable Area across an existing 47 level A-grade office tower, a new 35 level premium office tower, a new retail podium with 21 tenancies and a new 255 room boutique hotel.

New components of the 80 Collins precinct are currently being developed, with completion slated for 2020.

Dexus chief executive Darren Steinberg said the sale was completed on a passing yield of about 5.3 per cent and will be accretive to the 2020 financial year results.

"This is right on our strategy and will provide an excellent return to Dexus shareholders in the future," Mr Steinberg said.

"We are playing to our strengths and we see strong demand in the Melbourne office market."

With this acquisition Dexus will own or manage circa 20% of the total office stock (by area) in the Eastern Core post the acquisition of the 80 Collins precinct and the development of the neighbouring Dexus owned 52 and 60 Collins Street.
