Cedar Woods has commenced construction of its third commercial building at 107 Overton Road, Williams Landing which is fully leased to the Victorian State Government for 15 years.

At a sod turning ceremony held on Friday 17 August, Wyndham City Council Mayor Cr Peter Maynard joined Cedar Woods’ Chief Operating Officer Patrick Archer and JGS Property’s James Service (representing purchaser Hellenic Property Investments), to officially break ground on the project

Accommodating up to 320 employees, the four-storey building will add 3,126 sqm (NLA) of new A-Grade Commercial office space outside the traditional CBD and city-fringe locations.

Designed by Gray Puksand, 107 Overton Road will target a 4.5-Star NABERS rating and will also include 92 car parks. Hacer Group has been appointed to deliver the project with completion anticipated in late 2019.

The building has been forward sold to Hellenic Property Investments Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of the Hellenic Club of Canberra, in July 2018 for $25.93 million.

Williams Landing is a 225-hectare masterplanned community that will feature approximately 2,400 dwellings on completion, comprising a diverse mix of housing typologies including traditional lots, terraces, semi-detached townhouses and apartments, supported by parklands and sporting facilities and a town centre.

Williams Landing will also be home to the new Target Australia headquarters, currently under construction and set to be completed at the end of 2018.

The 50-hectare Town Centre is located central to Williams Landing's four residential neighbourhoods and incorporates its own shopping centre, transport hub, freeway interchange and regional bus interchange .

The Shopping Centre offers the full range of retailers and services you’d expect including a Woolworths supermarket, medical centre, dental clinic, chemist, childcare, gym, licenced restaurants, cafés and over 20 specialty retailers.

What they say...

We are excited to be bringing the Victorian State Government to what is quickly becoming a white-collar employment precinct in the western suburbs of Melbourne. The commencement of construction of our fourth office building marks another milestone for Williams Landing.

Employers continue to value our excellent train and road access and proximity to the Melbourne CBD and western suburbs workforce along with the retail, leisure and services amenities at Williams Landing Town Centre.” says Mr Archer.

Wyndham is one of the country’s fastest growing municipalities and we are pleased to be delivering over 1,400 new jobs to Williams Landing once our Target HQ, 111 Overton and 107 Overton are completed by the end of 2019.

With Wyndham outgrowing cities like Greater Geelong, the jobs that this project will bring to our City are indeed welcome. This is an exciting development and we look forward to hosting the Victorian State Government in Wyndham.
