Three heavyweight property groupings are making plays to house US energy giant Chevron, which is weighing up a shift to a new Perth headquarters in one of the resources-driven city’s biggest ever office deals.

The contest to house Chevron has produced three major options — Canadian group Brookfield delivering a new tower for the company to occupy at Elizabeth Quay, a scheme by Lendlease and GDI Property Group at the Mill Green Complex and staying put in Perth’s QV1 building.

The oil major’s intentions are coming into sharper focus after it last year called in Savills to advise on its requirement for about 40,000sq m, with developers putting forward towers it could occupy for up to 25 years.

Chevron has long been slated to build a tower of its own after in 2013 paying $64 million for a 6795sq m site in Elizabeth Quay. But it was granted two extensions as the market turned and last October Western Australia’s Metropolitan Redevelopment Auth*ority allowed it to seek a third party to build the tower via a build-to-lease proposal.

Canadian giant Brookfield is perhaps best positioned to develop a tower for the oil group. It is already developing a super-tall complex at the gateway of the city’s $2.6 billion Elizabeth Quay. Brookfield’s $1.1bn world-class mixed-use project is to be built on Elizabeth Quay lots 5 and 6.

Lot 5 will have 220 apartments, 15,000sq m of offices, 1300sq m of retail and a five-star hotel, while lot 6 will consist of about 35,000sq m of premium office space over 19 levels and 2000sq m of retail, to be delivered in 2022-23.

The Chevron site is next to the planned Brookfield development and industry sources said it had offered Chevron a “turnkey” solution where it would handle the entire development for the oil group. It could also accommodate part of Chevron in its complex.

Lendlease and GDI Property Group have also put forward the option of the Mill Green Complex in the centre of Perth as a potential home for Chevron. The pair last month flagged a major tie-up to develop a new commercial, retail and residential precinct based around the $321m Mill Green.

This would see 1 Mill Street demolished but would incorporate GDI’s 197 St Georges Terrace and 5 Mill Street, but the group declined to comment yesterday.

Chevron now occupies floors in the QV1 Tower at 250 St Georges Terrace and staying at the 43-storey office tower, centrally positioned in Perth’s western end, is also an option.

The Harry Seidler-designed complex is co-owned by Investa Commercial Property Fund and Eureka Funds Management and securing Chevron for the long term could spark work at that property.

The owners last year won approval for two new buildings — the 11-level QV2 and the 17-level QV3 — to be added to the parcel.

What's the story on 248 - 263 ? Is it up for consideration...or change ? Don't know what it is { Aspire } where it is...I mean Rialto has been around since the 80's...about time something took a leap.

Cbus Property seizes opportunity for $1b office tower
By Nick Lenaghan
21 Dec 2018 — 12:15 AM

In a sign of the times, super developer Cbus Property will pursue a $1 billion office tower project in the very heart of Melbourne after accumulating several sites once slated for residential skyscrapers.

Designed by Bates Smart, the proposed 55-level tower, if approved, will comprise 64,500sq m of office space on a site bounded by Bourke and Queen streets, only a few blocks from the developer's distinctive Pantscraper twin-tower project on Collins Street.


A proposal for a 55-level tower at 435 Bourke Street has been lodged by Cbus Property. Nick Lenaghan



"The significance of the project's location and the needs of a future city were integral to the project's design, as well as ensuring planning controls were met and the development potential of the site optimised," said chief executive Adrian Pozzo.

Central Melbourne could need another 4.4 million square metres of commercial space to house the expected growth in workforce numbers, Mr Pozzo said, noting recent forecasts.

"Our vision for 435 Bourke Street will help meet this demand," he said.

The super fund developer pulled together neighbouring properties into a single super-site after their Singaporean owners put aside a lengthy property dispute over their own proposals and offered the real estate to the market. .

During negotiations, Cbus Property secured a fourth adjoining property in the precinct owned by a Brunei-based family, amalgamating the properties for more than $170 million.

The dispute had forced Singapore's Chip Eng Seng to abandon its $350 million Tower Melbourne project at 150 Queen Street and return the 10 per cent deposits it had in hand for 556 sales contracts.


The tower’s sculptural form is broken down into four differentiated bundles at varying heights. Nick Lenaghan


The project stalled as trouble flared with its neighbour, the Chow family, which was pursuing its own plans for a serviced apartment development next door at 140 Queen Street.

While Cbus Property pounced on that opportunity, several major residential projects in the CBD have also been turned over to office development recently.

In October, Charter Hall took over a prime Collins Street site after its Singaporean owner struggled to win buyers for its apartment project. A month earlier Mirvac bought a site on La Trobe Street, previously slated for dramatically-styled 70-storey apartment tower designed by French architect Jean Nouvel.

Along with a four-level wellness hub, Cbus Property's tower proposal at 435 Bourke Street is broken into four distinct bundles and will include six landscaped terraces.

A 200sq m sky terrace on level 53 will provide an outlook over the Yarra River the MCG and Port Phillip Bay. As many as 5500 workers could occupy the tower.

If this is a pure office tower, and that seems the case, then this would be the tallest office proposed in Melbourne for over 3 decades.

Melbourne Central and 120 Collins were the last +200m office towers (to roof) and those were proposed around 1986.

Melbourne actually is in the midst of an office boom with 405 Bourke and Vic Police both being around 170m and 80 Collins South around 190m. Along with Older fleet, Wesley Place and Collins Arch.

Man 250m would be epic. If the 55 or so levels reaches 225m, the summit should be 25-30m, so 250m is on the cards for sure... We wait with baited breath

with 435B,ive scaled that render above with a couple of known heights and it equals 250m, so thats its max i reckon. and 230m im guessing. i never thought id see an office tower of that height in melbourne again. so great news

Cul, there’s an architectural firm working on a 280m one for an institutional developer for the other side of Bourke Street where the height limit is >300m RL. Longer term though as the existing buildings need to empty themselves of tenants.

Cul, what's the GFA for CQ?

435 Bourke seems to be quick unusual for the smallness of its floor-plates.

It seems to be 64,500sqm over 55 levels which comes out to about 1,200sqm per floor. It very much looks that CBUS wanted to maximise height here, so they appear to have sacrificed girth and tacked on height. It may end up being a modern-day 120 Collins.
