Businesses Continue to Flock to Barangaroo
World Class Commercial & Services Precinct a Reality
Commercial space in Tower One, International Towers Sydney at Barangaroo continues to be in high demand with over 75% of the circa 100,000sqm tower now committed, and advanced interest in the balance of space.
Wednesday 21 June, 2017: Recent signings include Industrial and Commercial Bank of China Limited (ICBC), leading international law firm Baker McKenzie; global ratings agency Morningstar; Pernod Ricard Winemakers; global quantitative trading firm Susquehanna; leading restructuring and business advisory firm Ferrier Hodgson and insurance & commercial law specialists Hicksons Lawyers. Global management consulting and professional services firm Accenture will occupy the precinct’s landmark timber building, International House Sydney.
Sydney Business Chamber Executive Director Patricia Forsythe said that she had watched with keen interest as the vision of Barangaroo turned into reality.
“Barangaroo has become Sydney’s economic heavyweight and at the same time has become a place where people have the capacity to live, work and play within the one vibrant and dynamic precinct.
“Sydney as a city continually needs to adapt, change and redefine itself to stay globally competitive. The opening up and refreshing of Sydney Harbour sites like Barangaroo means it’s a very exciting time to live and work in Sydney,” Ms Forsythe said.
Lendlease Managing Director, Barangaroo South Rob Deck said he is proud of the vibrant precinct that has been delivered.
“Lendlease’s mandate is to create the best places, and this can only be measured by how people use, experience and enjoy our precincts. Put very simply, Barangaroo South has become a place that people want to be, and we could not be prouder.
“From the residents in our apartments, people who work in our towers every day, the baristas who caffeinate our visitors, through to those who dine in our restaurants and families who come to the precinct to experience events like Vivid Sydney, to see Barangaroo embraced by the community it was built for, is very rewarding.
“The feedback we’ve received from our commercial tenants is very positive. We’ve heard stories of how the vibrant precinct is a major factor in attracting and retaining staff; how the large format, open plan spaces have significantly increased collaboration within teams; and how people are proud to showcase Barangaroo to their important clients and guests. The broader industry is also now recognising Barangaroo with the top three places to work in Australia, as recently voted by LinkedIn, all at Barangaroo,” Mr Deck said.
Current tenants who have already made Barangaroo home include Westpac, KPMG, Lendlease, Gilbert & Tobin, Swiss Re, HSBC, Servcorp, Marsh & McLennan Companies and PWC.
