Collaboration delivers Nine’s state of the art headquarters

The major relocation of media giant Nine Entertainment exceeded client expectations. The approach for the built-for-purpose accommodation at 1 Denison Street in North Sydney, was determined through Colliers’ long-standing relationship with Nine Entertainment. Our Tenant Advisory and Project Leaders team worked together to co-ordinate, lead, manage and deliver this new state of the art internal facility.

The project was complex, but that was the key driver to success. Colliers prioritised Nine’s unique requirements to ensure the relocation accommodated their 24/7 operations and 'building within a building’ needs. The Tenant Advisory team led a comprehensive accommodation search, handled all lease negotiations, and secured accommodation to hand over to Project Leaders to manage the delivery of the fitout. The collaborative approach meant challenges were overcome to provide the client with an end-to-end solution.

This has been a defining project for Tenant Advisory and Project Leaders. A successful demonstration of property expertise to lead our industry into the future.
