The iconic Australian Exchange Centre, home of the ASX, is soon to hit the market with price expectations of more than $325 million. 

The listing of the building at 20 Bridge Street in the heart of Sydney’s financial district makes it the first institutional grade Sydney CBD core offering since June 2013. 

The Malaysian pension fund Kumpulan Wang Persaraan is selling the Exchange Centre.

The A-grade 20,329 sqm commercial building comprises 13 upper levels of office accommodation, ‘Exchange Square’ retail on the ground level and an auditorium at basement level.

The building is 96 per cent leased with a long Weighted Average Lease Expiry (WALE) of more than seven years and managed by Investa.

It last exchanged hands for $185 million in 2011, being snapped up by an offshore institutional investor, according to RP Data.  

The ASX Group occupies more than 45 per cent of the building, with a lease expiry of more than 11 years.

The listing agents are Simon Fenn, Ian Hetherington and Ben Azar of Savills.

The high profile asset is only one of six buildings valued at over circa $200 million and which is 100 per cent owned within the CBD core.

“This is a rare opportunity to purchase 100 per cent interest in the Sydney core and we expect a strong mix of both local and offshore interest, likely to come from China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan and parts of Europe,” said Simon Fenn, managing director NSW at Savills. 

The Exchange Centre is minutes from Circular Quay and Wynyard Train Station.
