Refurbishment of 320 Pitt Street, Sydney has made way for the city’s largest existing-site leasing deal since pre-pandemic times, falling in line with demand seen in CBD’s nation-wide for A-grade office space.
Designed by national architecture and design practice Gray Puksand, the defining new look for 320 Pitt Street features an alternate building entry-point for major tenant, the Department of Defence who is set to take over 18,000sqm of the site.
Owned by ARA Australia, Gray Puksand worked closely with the leasing team to design concepts for a variety of tenants. The unique offering sees separate entries, foyers, as well as two separate lifts for a first-of-its-kind workplace in Sydney’s CBD. The unique amenity this provided allowed the building to reach full occupancy before completion, with We Work leasing an additional 11,000sqm of premium office space.
A standalone commercial hub that outshines other developments within the midtown area, the design offers a holistic approach to urban design and branding that creates a strong street presence and identity attracting the next generation of tenant.
“We’re proud to have assisted ARA Australia in securing the city’s largest existing-site leasing deal since 2019. We’re seeing an influx of businesses looking to shake things up after a long period of working from home. Thorough stakeholder research enabled us to understand what employers are looking for…namely this is autonomy, flexibility and social interaction,” says Gray Puksand State Managing Partner, Scott Moylan.
