A renowned integrated energy company based out of Australia, Chevron Australia, has made it to the headlines for its decision to become the next tenant at Elizabeth Quay, Perth. According to reliable sources, the energy magnate has lodged a development application for an office tower spanning thirty storeys, on the corner of The Esplanade and Barrack Street.
Reliable reports suggest that the tower, apparently multi-use, spanning 52,000 square meters, will be equipped with state-of-the-art facilities along the likes of childcare, gymnasium space, exhibition spaces, as well as sophisticated conference facilities. Additionally, the tower will also encompass retail tenancies and a café as well as restaurants on the ground floor in order to tap the growing foot traffic witnessed around the quay.
Brookfield has been selected to undertake the construction of the tower. Incidentally, the developer is endowed with an exceptional workforce of 1,000, while Chevron stands as the anchor tenant.
Hon. Rita Saffioti, Minister for Transport, Planning and Lands, has reportedly been openly enthused about the move. If sources are to be believed, Saffioti welcomed the application, while claiming alongside that the development of the Lots 7 and 8 would certainly help activate the wider quay precinct. Elaborating on the economic development and changing business scenario of the region, Saffioti, further on, was quoted stating that the construction of a greater number of office buildings here is undeniably indicative of the fact that business confidence has been soaring across West Australia.
The construction developer, Brookfield, has apparently demonstrated its commitment in order to maximize the domestic industry involvement, claims Saffioti. This development in consequence, would quite overtly, generate a plethora of on-site jobs and a highly massive influx of work through local contracts, she continues further.
For the uninitiated, the application for Elizabeth Quay is open for public scrutiny and comments until the 24th of October 2018.
