Renaissance 140


Renaissance 140 refurbishment will commence in April 2003 with 65% of the $34 million being spent on the building services. This is expected to be the largest ever refurbishment of a Perth CBD building. The first refurbished floors will be available by July 2003. Major works will be undertaken on the building air conditioning system, lifts and other services. Renaissance 140 will have an extended ground floor lobby and new Welcome Hall which reaches almost to St Georges Terrace. Refurbished building showers, new ground floor cafe, new conference facility and disabled toilets on all levels are all other features of the refurbishment. Renaissance 140 has a goods lift to all levels and extensive onsite storage facilities.

Multiplex wins $34m tower rejig
MULTIPLEX has been awarded a $34 million contract to refurbish the AMP building in a project touted as the biggest office tower refurbishment in Perth's history.

The building, at 140 St Georges Terrace, was built in 1975.

The departure of Freehills to the QV1 building has freed 6000sqm of office space in the AMP building and Computer Sciences Corporation's move to Subiaco later this year will take the total vacant space to about 11,000sqm.

Multiplex director John Flecker said the refurbishment would give the building a more prominent entrance.

To ensure the works did not disrupt tenants, the alterations to the entrance would be done in two parts.

Mr Flecker said the entrance work would be completed by the end of this year.

"This will transform this building from a 1975 building to a modern, brand new office space," he said.

"The biggest challenge will be to keep the tenants and the client and the public happy as the works take shape."

Major work will be staged to cause minimum disruption to the tenants, which include Euroz Securities and the Office of Equal Employment Opportunity.

The A-grade sector of the CBD office market is now very competitive, with big spaces opening up.

Research indicates 120,000sqm of impending vacancy in this segment over the next 18 months.

Because of the cost and risk associated with construction, some city office property owners have opted for refurbishment to restore a competitive advantage.

In addition to the AMP building, Cape Bouvard's CTA building is slated for a major redevelopment and Hawaiian Management Group's 182 St Georges Terrace is nearing completion.

CB Richard Ellis commercial leasing director Andrew Denny said the leasing campaign for the AMP tower had already started, with prospective tenants already looking at the space.

"This is the biggest refurbishment in Perth," Mr Denny said. "This is going to result in a top-quality product with a brand new ground-floor lobby."

The majority of the refurbishment work, developed by architects Cox Howlett Bailey Woodland, will take place over the next 12 months, but the entire project will run over three years.

AMP Henderson development projects manager Stephen Clement said the upgrade would really bring the building up to A-plus standard.

"Other than the facade everything will have a new feel," Mr Clement said.

The AMP Building will compete with other refurbished office towers, including the top two floors of 225 St Georges Square.

it such a shame they are not doing up the facade. its going to have a massive overhall though, $34million is a heap of money. hopefully for some reason they need to work on the plant and have a massive crane on site shows the weakness of the market with re-furbishments like this fighting for tenants. again this might be a blow for the chances of a new tower as rents will probably be cheaper. i hope the new entry on the crn and will and st georges terrace turns out to be something spectacular, also the cafe will be good for bring some more life to the terrace. hopefully they atleast illuminate the facade at night or something..
though AMP isn't hot, i don't see it as an ugly tower, and it reflects the 70's, if we loose that facade we won't have much to remind us of the past [not that I care that much]

Yeah not many people favour the poor AMP building.
Apparently the street level refurbishment should be a real treat.

I would like to see a small modern shopping complex around the base like they have put around the base of alot of office towers in Sydney and Melbourne (dare I say it, probably Brisbane too) when they have been redeveloped.
