I guess the days of an artificially inflated resi market are starting to come to an end.

Bland Melbourne Quarter's designs may be, but Lendlease is having no problem flogging them off. Of course, it helps when you have in-house funding options. Report from UrbanDeveloper.

Lendlease Sells Two Melbourne Quarter

Lendlease’s unlisted Australian Prime Property Fund Commercial has teamed up with superannuation fund First State Super to acquire the final tower in Lendlease’s $2 billion Melbourne Quarter project.

The 25-storey tower at 697 Collins Street, which was approved for construction in 2017, will be split into even stakes between the super fund and the company's investment arm.

The tower was reportedly sold for $550 million.

APPF Commercial Fund Manager Scott Mosely said the fund’s investment in Two Melbourne Quarter followed a recent over-subscribed equity raising, where the fund leveraged its off-market access to Lendlease’s leading office development and urban regeneration capability in acquiring the asset

“It positions the fund to continue executing its strategy to invest in efficient, highly-sustainable, next generation office buildings in precincts with superior amenity and connectivity,” he said.

When complete, the Woods Bagot-designed Two Melbourne Quarter will feature 49,000sq m of total office space with flexible 2,000sq m floor plates, end-of-trip facilities, business amenities and childcare services.

It will be sufficient to accommodate about 4,500 new workers and 800 square metres of retail space on the ground floor.

Two Melbourne Quarter is the second of three commercial towers planned for the precinct.

The first tower, One Melbourne Quarter, was acquired by APPF Commercial in 2016. It is 90 per cent leased and on schedule for completion later this year.

EnergyAustralia has secured approximately 22,000sq m, taking up 10-and-a-half levels of the building’s high-rise floors and establishing them as Two Melbourne Quarter’s anchor tenant.

The current tenancy placeholders have left about half of the building available, with 12 contiguous floors remaining for lease.[/QUOTE]

Lendlease brings six new retail tenants to Melbourne Quarter

Lendlease has secured tenants for six of the seven shops in the first office tower at its $2.5 billion Melbourne Quarter urban regeneration project in Docklands.

The first of three office buildings approved for the 2.5-hectare site, One Melbourne Quarter at 699 Collins Street, will be officially opened on October 11. The 13-level building includes a new public square joined to a sky garden by an eye-catching spiral staircase as well as seven retail spaces.

The first shop, Peddler Espresso, is due to open later this week. Peddler Espresso is from the creators of Kitty Burns, a popular cafe in Abbotsford.

Another cafe operator, Sargon, will trade as Sergy Boy at 699 Collins Street and is scheduled to begin trading in November. Two other tenants – sandwich, soup and salad bar Bluebag and cold press juice maker Home Juice – will open early next year.

In total there are about 4000 square metres of retail space at Melbourne Quarter, and approximately 1000 sq m of retail space at One Melbourne Quarter, which was acquired by Lendlease's unlisted APPF Commercial fund in 2016 and will serve as Lendlease's Victorian headquarters as well as offices for Arup and AMP.
