International share registry and shareholder management ﬁrm Link Group has inked a nine-year lease at ofﬁce tower QV1, taking the building’s occupancy rate past 90 per cent.
QV1 co-owners Investa Property Group and Eureka Real Assets today announced Link Group would relocate its 270 staff from Central Park, as part of a move to standardise its ofﬁce accommodation across the country.
Link Group national head of procurement and facilities administration, Danny Sindrivanis, said QV1 really stood out during the company’s ofﬁce search.
“The base building refurbishment to the ﬂoors is exceptional and certainly raised the overall quality of the building to match any other premium-grade building in the Australian market, not just Perth,” Mr Sindrivanis said.
“The ﬂoors offer large, column-free space, which is able to better support Link Group’s business structure and provide ﬂexibility for any future change the business might experience.”
The redevelopment works comprise the construction of a new public plaza on the ground ﬂoor, to be known as The Grounds, including a range of premium food and beverage retailers.
Additional amenities in the building itself include a 300-bike storage facility and the ﬁrst commercial ofﬁce in Perth to offer a community garden, complete with chickens and beehives for tenants.
Investa Perth general manager Tom Simurina said the QV1 co-owners were committed to invest in facilities known to be desirable for tenants.
“With the refurbishment of QV1’s ofﬁce ﬂoors, retail plaza and new childcare and end of trip facilities, we are ensuring the building’s premium position in the market is maintained,” he said
The Link Group deal takes the 64,064 square metre QV1’s occupancy rate to 93.9 per cent, with more than 2,500 workers residing in the building daily.
