Mirvac celebrates Topping Out at Olderfleet31 July 2019Mirvac and co-owner Suntec Real Estate Investment Trust have today announced the topping out and completion of the main structural works at Olderfleet, Mirvac’s premium office building at 477 Collins Street, Melbourne.
The Grimshaw-designed, 38-level building consists of 58,000sqm premium-grade office and retail space, and has topped out on time, ahead of practical completion expected in mid-2020.
Mirvac’s General Manager, Development, Simon Healy, said, “This milestone marks another achievement for Olderfleet, which has seen strong interest from our tenants with a range of high calibre brands pre-committed, bringing the tower to 94% leased.”
“Mirvac’s vision to create one of Australia’s leading smart buildings, rising out of the heritage façade at Olderfleet, has struck a chord with the Melbourne market. Set to become an exemplar of modern working environments, the building integrates leading technology, sustainability and amenities that will include a wellness offering and childcare centre.”
The remaining lettable space at the building includes the entire Skyrise floor on level 34, which is made up of 1,700sqm of light-filled office space with spectacular city views. Incoming businesses will join a first-class line up of brands already committed, including Norton Rose Fulbright, Lander & Rogers, Urbis and anchor tenant Deloitte.
“Olderfleet presents a rare opportunity for premium office space in the tightening Melbourne rental market. Since Mirvac’s construction commencement, there has been a surge of interest in the midtown area of the CBD, with the precinct surrounding Olderfleet coming to life with restaurants, bars, shopping, and health and wellbeing facilities for workers and the community.
“Mirvac has a pipeline of projects in Melbourne including 383 La Trobe Street. This future, next generation office tower provides yet another opportunity for Mirvac to set new benchmarks in workplace design and contribute to the dynamic and evolving urban landscape within the Melbourne CBD,” Mr Healy said.
Mirvac has already pre-committed two of the five retail spaces at the Olderfleet building and has had strong enquiries for the remaining spaces, including a foyer café, two-level tenancy at the heritage entrance and a laneway offering on Flinders Lane. The interest from signature Melbourne food and beverage providers reflects the calibre of the tenants and the strong demand for the precinct.
Deloitte’s Managing Partner, Victoria, Paul Rehder said, “We’re really excited to reach this key milestone for our new home at 477 Collins Street– a workplace signalling Deloitte’s position as the undisputed leader in professional services and a magnet for what we can offer clients and employees, both professionally and personally.
“The future of work is moving towards human-centred, technologically driven workplaces – trends that reflect the convergence of work and life to enhance employee wellbeing. The building is purposefully designed to encourage co-creation and innovation, and it will set a new standard for employee experience as the way our people work becomes more automated, agile and collaborative.”
Olderfleet tenants have committed to changing ways of work, using the leading technology and infrastructure in the building to deliver enhanced operations and leading workplace conditions, supporting the significant upfront investment by Mirvac in these areas.
Lander & Rogers’ Chief Executive Partner, Genevieve Collins, said, “Innovation and technology are transforming the legal profession and this provides an exciting opportunity for firms that are prepared to seize it. This involves more than simply investing in IT infrastructure: we need to evolve how we work – with our clients, each other, and within our broader community."
"Internally, our people tell us they want an environment that accommodates complete mobility. They want areas for digital and face-to-face collaboration as well as spaces conducive to individual focus. An agile, connected workplace is at the very core of Lander & Rogers' long-term strategy and our move to 477 Collins will help us fully realise that."
Future occupants at Olderfleet will benefit from luxurious hotel-style end-of-trip facilities with bike parking, lockers, a premium towel service, and 410 car parking spaces with direct access to the childcare centre.
Olderfleet is committed to a 5 Star Green Star rating, a 5 Star NABERS energy rating and a Platinum WELL Certification.
Note: Mirvac acquired 383 La Trobe Street in 2018 and intends to redevelop the site into a new office tower spanning over 40,000 square metres.

Premium logistics hub Calibre opens in Western Sydney10 May 2019
Mirvac has today celebrated the official opening of its premium logistics hub Calibre, in Eastern Creek. The strategically located industrial precinct delivers high-quality built form and employment outcomes for Western Sydney and sets a new benchmark for industrial and warehouse facilities in Australia.
The Treasurer of New South Wales, The Hon. Dominic Perrottet MP officiated at the opening ceremony and cut the ribbon, alongside Mirvac CEO & Managing Director, Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz. Calibre’s thriving business community, together with the Mirvac team and project partners, turned out to celebrate the exciting milestone.
Calibre’s 22-hectare site includes a mix of flexible warehousing, A-grade office space and advanced specifications with 110,000sqm of floor space across five buildings. Ideally placed to cater to logistics, warehousing and manufacturing companies, Mirvac secured premium brands CEVA Logistics, Miele, Pet Circle, Sheldon & Hammond and ACFS e-Solutions at Calibre, with the Estate 100 per cent leased ahead of its practical completion.
General Manager, Industrial at Mirvac, Richard Seddon said, “At Calibre we’ve elevated the standard for industrial and warehouse facilities in Sydney with our focus on quality, functionally and flexibility which will futureproof the estate for years to come. Mirvac drew on its uniquely integrated business model and cross-sector experience to bring the best of office and residential design to an industrial asset, to exceed customer and industry expectations.
“We are proud to open this landmark facility which provides our customers with a significant competitive advantage, contributes to the sustainable, long-term growth of e-commerce and logistics in Australia and generates vital long-term employment opportunities for Western Sydney."
“Through our investment in placemaking, design and amenity we have already seen a community and a shared economy coming to life at the Estate.”
Treasurer of NSW, The Hon. Dominic Perrottet MP, said the logistics hub was boosting employment in Western Sydney creating hundreds of jobs during construction and on a permanent basis.
“NSW has the leading economy in Australia with the lowest unemployment rate, and investments like this one are at the heart of that success.
“This is a key infrastructure building block for Western Sydney, and will attract more businesses to the region, boost job opportunities for locals, and help shape the future.”
Mirvac Group said approximately 450 construction jobs were generated during the development phase with 480 permanent jobs resulting.
Supply Chain Director at Pet Circle, Nick Bennett said, “We’re excited to relocate our operation into the new facility at Calibre in Eastern Creek. The advanced specifications, new standards of amenity and bespoke warehouse features of the Estate will deliver long-term efficiency and flexibility for Pet Circle, ultimately boosting business growth. The custom designed facility at Calibre, which blends flexible warehousing and exceptional office space, was delivered beyond our expectations.”
“After seeing the high-quality workspace and amenity of the facility, it allowed us the flexibility to have employees based here that are not traditionally warehouse employees such as a customer service team. The recruitment drive post move allowed us to hire the majority of workers from the Western Sydney area.”
The site is perfectly positioned as a distribution hub for the eastern seaboard with excellent transport links at the interchange of the M4 and M7 motorways, and under an hour drive to the Sydney CBD, Port Botany and the new Western Sydney International airport.
Calibre has been built for ultimate flexibility with service provisions in two of the warehouses for a second office component allowing for split tenancies. It’s also equipped to accommodate a range of uses, with a nine tonne racking post load internal slab with armoured joints to support future automation requirements, generous space for loading and a 20 metre cantilevered awning system across the length of the loading face for the majority of the buildings.
Displaying best practice design and sustainability, Calibre has energy efficient lighting, rainwater harvesting, photovoltaic solar, cyclist and end-of-trip facilities and 10 per cent natural lighting to reduce energy bills and create savings for customers.
Operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, Calibre is located at 60 Wallgrove Road, Eastern Creek at the centre of Australia’s national supply network within the Eastern Creek logistics hub.
In August 2018, Mirvac sold a 50 per cent stake in the Calibre Estate to the Mirvac Industrial Logistics Partnership (MILP) a partnership between Mirvac and an investment vehicle sponsored by Morgan Stanley Real Estate Investing.

Yerrabingin co-founder, Christian Hampson said, “We are excited to open Australia’s first Indigenous rooftop farm, to celebrate and promote Aboriginal permaculture. This is a significant step forward in embedding reconciliation into placemaking while harnessing the potential of Aboriginal social enterprise. The development industry can often be concerned about ‘overstepping protocol’ so it has been inspiring to work with Mirvac who have set an example for the industry in how to respectively incorporate Aboriginal culture and heritage.”
Mirvac Project Director, William Walker said, “With the transformation of South Eveleigh into a state-of-the-art work and lifestyle destination it was vital to Mirvac that we paid careful consideration to the site’s important Indigenous heritage and significance. By working with Yerrabingin we were able to co-create an experience at the precinct that will engage and connect the public to Aboriginal storytelling, while educating them on the history of the site.
“Successful precincts around the world deliver diverse offerings and experiences so all people feel welcome. The indigenous farm is a key part of our activation strategy for the precinct that will foster an inclusive community for visitors, local residents and workers.”
The farm will be self-funded through the delivery of 16 events per month for visitors and South Eveleigh’s 18,000 workers and residents. Yerrabingin will manage workshops, events and tours that focus on native permaculture, environmental sustainability, physical and mental health.
Yerrabingin are also working to establish the South Eveleigh Aboriginal Cultural Landscape Garden, which will grow native and medicinal plant species and bush food.
The Indigenous rooftop farm on Building 3 of the precinct is part of Mirvac’s $1 billion transformation of South Eveleigh, set for completion in 2020. The farm is one element of a wide range of engaging and educational experiences at the precinct including tours of the garden and storytelling, focused on celebrating and remembering Aboriginal culture.
South Eveleigh has been co-created by Mirvac, anchor tenant Commonwealth Bank, and consortium partners, AMP Capital, Sunsuper and Centuria Property Funds.

WORKTECH Breakfast and Conference12 March 2017
Over the past 3 years, Mirvac has been working in partnership with Unwired Ventures, the producers of the annual global conference, WORKTECH. This year as a platinum sponsor Mirvac hosted a breakfast for 70 of our top clients and partners, featuring keynote speaker Dr Kristine Dery, Research Scientist from MIT Sloan and Philip Ross, CEO of Unwired Ventures, as well as Paul Edwards discussing his recently published paper on the ‘Intermix Approach’.
The breakfast explored themes such as overcoming the challenges around employee connectedness by unlocking the potential for responsive leadership in the digital sphere; removing bureaucratic silos within an organisation and using technology to engineer serendipity between colleagues in physical space; and how we can create a physical space that helps to facilitate the sharing of knowledge as people interact in less formal and more diverse ways.
The three discussion topics emphasized how a ‘set and forget’ approach to implementing technology within a workplace is dangerous to employee connectedness if it does not easily align to different requirements.
The following day at the conference, Paul addressed over 400 individuals from real estate, technology and innovation divisions, presenting his ideas on the future of the SMART precincts. With reference to Mirvac’s new development, ATP, Paul highlighted how this development will set a new precedent in base build technology and how this can add value to businesses and allow them to thrive in a new digital world.
