Colliers International reports strong interest in remaining space at 34-50 Stirling Street.
A 2000sqm lease has been signed for office space at 34-50 Stirling Street in Perth, the city-fringe building owned by News Corp.
The space was leased by Perth-based business systems specialist Fortix Business Accelerator in a deal negotiated by Johnson Property tenant advocate Corina Johnson and Colliers International’s leasing agents Daniel Taylor and Dustin May.
The two-storey, 6250-sqm building anchors the city end of Stirling Street, which is being revitalised by a series of infill apartment and student accommodation developments.
Mr Taylor and Mr May said the lease, which takes up almost all of the building’s ground floor, was one of the biggest office leases on the edge of the city this year.
“This is a well-appointed office building that is fitted out and ready for immediate occupation,” Mr Taylor said.
“There have been regular renovations at the building and its upgrades include a gym, an alfresco area, swipe access security turnstiles and a data room.”
With a mix of open plan and smaller offices, 34-50 Stirling Street also has a staff break-out area, under croft parking and a 500sqm basement.
Ms Johnson said the Stirling Street building was selected after an extensive search of the city-fringe and the CBD.
“The Fortix team and their business accelerator clients needed premises with innovative and flexible work spaces in a prominent building,” Ms Johnson said.
“They also needed affordable parking nearby and space for future expansion.
“The News Corp-owned Stirling Street building was my client’s final choice as it ticked all the boxes.”
Mr May said the building was a short walk from the Perth and McIver train stations and its location on one of the main routes into the CBD offered a high profile address for relocating businesses.
“With a surplus of affordable office space still on offer, tenants are making their way back into the city and 34-50 Stirling Street is a turnkey building in an up and coming street that will have a vibrant mix of commercial and residential projects,” he said.
The building is being offered for lease from $295 per square metre and Mr Taylor said there was strong interest from two other businesses in the remaining space.
