Investa Commercial Property Fund (‘ICPF’) and Gwynvill Group (‘Gwynvill’) are pleased to announce that
leases have been executed with global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright at its flagship development 60 Martin
Norton Rose Fulbright will relocate from current premises at 44 Martin Place and 225 George Street
(Grosvenor Place), to 9,527m2 in the low rise of the Premium grade office tower, which is located in a
prominent position on the corner of Martin Place, Phillip Street and Macquarie Street, Sydney.
Designed by leading architects HASSELL, the 33-level Premium Grade tower provides uninterrupted views of
the Opera House, Botanical Gardens and Sydney Harbour and is in close proximity to the Reserve Bank, the
Law Courts, Martin Place station, main arterial roads and entertainment amenities. It will incorporate state of
the art end-of-trip-facilities, a concierge service, cafes and outdoor terraces, with the base building targeting
a minimum 6-Star Green Star Office and a 5-Star NABERS Energy rating. 60 Martin Place will also feature
leading edge technology solutions including an integrated service platform and adaptive lighting controls,
which will support workplace flexibility and optimise the occupant experience.
Group Executive at Investa, Michael Cook, attributes the building’s tailored, distinctive design, intelligent
infrastructure and close proximity to the law courts as a driving factor in the process.
“We are developing a building that is almost bespoke to the needs of the modern law firm, with large,
customisable floor plates and panoramic harbour and city views.
The timeless, elegant design, coupled with Investa and Gwynvill’s shared long term vision for the asset,
should provide Norton Rose Fulbright and other potential tenants with a measure of certainty, that they too
can plan their long term future in the asset,” said Mr Cook.
To help the law firm achieve its vision of creating a workplace environment that fosters collaboration and
innovative thinking, the tenancy incorporates a 750m2 landscaped, outdoor terrace space on Level 4.
Managing Partner in Australia Wayne Spanner said: “Office design is an important contributor to business
culture and our new premises will nurture the open, innovative and client-centric culture we want to create.
We’re really looking forward to engaging our people in an environment that motivates them and provides
opportunities for clients to interact with us in a modern, high-tech, and accessible way.”
ICPF Fund Manager, Jason Leong said: ‘We are delighted that Norton Rose Fulbright will be moving to 60
Martin Place to accommodate its new Sydney headquarters, and we look forward to building on our
relationship over the long term. The interest by a dynamic global law firm underpins the quality of our new
premium office tower in the centre of Sydney’s legal and financial business district.”
60 Martin Place is scheduled to complete in late-2019. For more information, visit www.sixtymartinplace.com.
