A prolonged period of working from home has changed the way we think about working environments. Returning to the office is an opportunity to recapture a sense of social connection. The upgrades at West Block will redefine what a modern workplace can be, with a ground floor experience designed to impress visitors and enhance the wellbeing of occupants.

Originally built in 1926 and under Commonwealth ownership for almost a century, West Block is a place of heritage and character. Now, in the hands of Oceana Property Partners, this Parliamentary Triangle landmark is being revitalised as a new destination for influence. West Block stands ready to make an influential return as a visionary workplace.

Located within the heart of the Parliamentary Precinct, only 500m from Parliament House and situated on a significant 1.7 Hectare site, enveloped by a natural green canopy. The building offers access to 350 carparks, double the standard ratio.

West Block will be much more than a workplace. OPP commissioned Capezio Copeland to design a vision for the ground floor, which includes a destination, fully-licensed restaurant with an indoor dining space, outdoor deck and private dining room. Together with a state-of-the-art business centre, with bookable meeting rooms, will provide secure and well-equipped collaborative spaces.

New best-in-class End of Trip amenities will include male and female showers and locker rooms, plus an accessible shower/bathroom, encouraging a healthy commute or a lunchtime workout. A separate building on the site will become a secure bicycle parking station and bike workshop. The end-of-trip area has its own entrance, convenient to the bicycle parking.
A dedicated wellness space will enjoy a tranquil green outlook. Here a range of gym equipment and a yoga studio for the exclusive use of building occupants will offer a choice of exercise options.

Flexible lettable spaces will be available from 500 – 8000m². The distinctive floorplates have excellent potential to deliver neighbourhood zoning and an opportunity to incorporate collaborative breakout spaces. This floor plate configuration also allows for the easy creation of private offices if required. West Block is dedicated to expanding the workplace experience, a business environment unmatched in Canberra.
