Allendale Square

Business as usual

A key success of the redevelopment at Allendale Square was the lack of disruption caused for the existing tenants in the building during construction. Transforming a major CBD site is never simple, especially when the tenants need to stay in place and continue operating without interruption.

Thanks to a strong communication strategy, Mirvac was able to complete construction at Allendale Square on time and on budget, with no need to pay rent abatement tenants, Francis Burt Chambers. Mirvac achieved an overall satisfaction rating of 84 per cent at Allendale Square in our 2017 tenant survey (against Campbell Sholtens benchmark of 77 per cent).

Mirvac secured the renewal of key tenant, Francis Burt Chambers, for an additional 15-year lease. Allendale Square now reflects the prestige of its tenants, its business values and culture; as well as providing a place that supports wellbeing, and gives employees access to outstanding food and shopping. Mirvac is excited to see how Allendale Square continues to meet the evolving needs of its tenants as the future unfolds.

One vision, many perspectives

Key to the creation of the new Allendale Square was consultation with a wide range of stakeholders including close contact with key tenant, Francis Burt Chambers. Through face-to-face meetings, workshops, events and emails, Mirvac gained a thorough understanding of tenant and building users needs.

With the Perth market declining at the time, it was also critical that the new building met the needs of the local community. By engaging with a range of stakeholders including local experts to adjoining landowners, and input from sustainability, facilities management, legal and tax teams at different stages of the process, Mirvac developed a premium, bespoke retail mix that delivers an exceptional work and leisure precinct.
