St. Leonards and other second CBDs see strong office rental growth

August 31, 2018 by  

Sydney’s CBD is finding strong competition in the office space market from several suburbs across the metropolitan area, including St. Leonards on the Lower North Shore. Increased city-wide commercial activity means it is important for companies to keep their business cards and logo design up to date.

The latest edition of the Office Market Report from the Property Council of Australia (PCA) finds that other parts of the North Shore including Macquarie Park and Chatswood are also seeing an uptick in office vacancy levels. In the six months to July a drop of 1.6 percentage points was reported in the area across the harbour from the main CBD.

Paul Lynch of commercial property management firm JLL believes residential development activity coupled with significant new office investments in the North Sydney area are behind the improvement.

"It’s also a persuasive influence in attracting corporates to relocate from the Sydney CBD."

he told the Sydney Morning Herald.

Parramatta in western Sydney remains a leader in business activity, reporting the lowest office vacancy rate in the country at 3.2 per cent in the six months to July. All types of office stock in the area from Premium to D-grade are said to be running up against their maximum capacities. The PCA has called for a continued focus on encouraging new investment in local council planning policies in order to keep up with demand.

Winning entry to feature at Sydney Design Festival

August 26, 2018 by  

Graphic design skills and an eye for architectural design in particular have been great assets for entrants in the 2019 Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences’ (MAAS) Architecture Commission.

Introduced as an aspect of the Sydney Design Festival for the first time last year, the commissioned piece which attracts entries from Brookvale and throughout New South Wales will be featured at next year’s event.

A MAAS spokesman described the festival as:

“An annual celebration of design.”

In 2019 the winning entry’s design will be displayed on the Powerhouse Museum’s forecourt which offers the successful designers high visibility due to the busy traffic corridor along Harris Street as well as ongoing museum visitation.

Entries, which closed on August 13, were called from designers and architects.

Their task was to come up with a design concept for a temporary structure or installation that not only works at the site but also explores the prospect for architecture to deal with complex issues such as access and environmental sustainability.

MAAS Director Peter Denham said:

“The MAAS Architecture Commission is an opportunity for emerging practitioners to create something truly unique that will be experienced by both the design community and the wider Sydney community.”

Last year the inaugural Commission recipient was Sydney-based architecture studio Trias with an installation called Four Periscopes.

This year’s winning design will be announced in September to allow time for the installation to be mounted during the Sydney Design Festival to be held from March 1 to 10, 2019.
