21 December 2016
Melbourne – From 2020, independent top 10 Australian law firm Gadens will be calling Cbus Property’s iconic $1.25 billion Collins Arch development at 447 Collins Street its new home.
Grant Scott-Hayward, Gadens Melbourne CEO said:
“We are delighted to announce that Collins Arch will be the future home of Gadens and extend our congratulations to Cbus Property on this premier development and what will be the high profile, premium building in the city and a landmark in Melbourne. This highly significant step for our firm and its future will further enhance our market position and demonstrates our commitment to being a pre-eminent, independent Australian firm. Collins Arch offers the unique opportunity to truly align our work space with our work ethos, in line with our focus on being an employer of choice with a high performance culture for our clients. It will enable our people to collaborate more widely in a work environment designed specifically for our needs, complemented by first-rate facilities”.
“Collins Arch was designed to be a signifier of leading design and instantly recognisable as a statement of Melbourne’s premier status globally,” said Cbus Property CEO Adrian Pozzo. “We are pleased to welcome Gadens to Collins Street’s new pinnacle address and, as a law firm committed to positioning itself as a best practice organisation and employer of choice, we are confident Collins Arch will offer the best place to grow and demonstrate these commitments”.
Gadens has secured 5,000 square metres of commercial space, and will take up 2.5 floors in the western tower of Collins Arch. Taking up the entire city block between Collins Street, Williams Street, Market Street and Flinders Lane, Collins Arch is designed by international award-winning architects Woods Bagot and SHoP Architects. The mixed-use destination development will provide what is anticipated to be Melbourne’s first WELL-rated commercial building when completed in 2019.
“The building’s WELL rating, together with carefully considered planning and amenities, will unequivocally support the health and wellbeing of our people and makes the Cbus Property development an opportunity we simply couldn’t look past. Staff will have access to a gym and top class end-of-trip facilities, and the 5 star NABERS energy rating will enhance our environmental sustainability outcomes,” concludes Mr. Scott-Hayward.
