Mirvac opens ‘smart’ Sydney headquarters with aim to revitalise Circular Quay
Developer Mirvac Group and joint owner AMP Capital have unveiled their new Sydney office building at 200 George Street.
Home to Mirvac and Ernst & Young’s (EY) new Sydney headquarters, and to be known as the EY Centre, the office embraces industry-leading design, technology and sustainability features.
According to Mirvac, plans to activate the ground floor plane and surrounding laneways with diverse food and beverage outlets, public art and leisure spaces will deliver a vibrant lifestyle destination for workers and the wider Sydney community.
Mirvac managing director Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz says the company’s vision for the project has been to create a cutting-edge workplace for leading organisations.
“Showcasing adaptable workspaces, green credentials, state-of-the-art technology and iconic design from architects, Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp, the building is testament to the hard work and collaboration between Mirvac and our many partners who have been involved in this pioneering project,” comments Lloyd-Hurwitz.
“As Circular Quay re-establishes itself as Sydney’s premium destination for commerce, entertainment, travel and culture, 200 George Street, with its activated laneways and public art and heritage displays, is ideally placed to make a significant contribution to the reinvigoration of the wider Circular Quay precinct.”
“Our workspaces are agile, flexible and efficient enabling our people to work in a way that works for them – EY’s Lynn Kraus
The EY Centre is one of the first ‘smart’ office buildings in Australia, with market-leading technology that adjusts the internal environment to meet the needs of workers, says EY managing partner, Sydney & Oceania, Lynn Kraus.
“Our workspaces are agile, flexible and efficient enabling our people to work in a way that works for them,” Kraus says.
Standing at 37 storeys, the tower offers a net lettable area of approximately 39,200 square metres of office space, with a world-first closed cavity façade with timber blinds, giving the building its distinctive appearance.
Set to be one of Australia’s most environmentally advanced and sustainable developments, a six-star green star – design office v3 certified rating, a six-star as built rating, and five-star NABERS rating are being targeted. Mirvac’s headquarters will also become one of Australia’s first WELL-certified offices.
