Project details

The building is designed around connectivity, connecting people within the building through a large central atrium, and connecting tenants to the community outside through a full height, transparent ‘window’ to the outside precinct. At the ground plane, the seamless integration of the boulevard to the lobby space blurs building boundaries welcoming user engagement

The building offers more than 26,000 square metres of commercial workspace over seven floors, a four-level car park for 450 cars and the latest in end-of-trip facilities

A mixed-use yoga studio/creative meeting space/games room forms part of the lobby, giving wellness a prominent and visible place in the design. The transparent glass frontage to the plaza gives CBA the opportunity to demonstrate to the community their commitment to employee health and wellbeing

Staggered floor plates, an exposed lift shaft and offset cores support CBA’s vision for a flexible, collaborative and teams based workplace environment offering interesting views and increased transparency across floors and the atrium

Designed for the next generation of tenant, the building supports an agile and innovation focused workforce with amenity for social gathering and wellbeing
