The new 7-level office building development comprises a basement and six levels of premium office working space.
Base building provisions were incorporated into the design to allow for leasing flexibility on each level and accommodate two separate office spaces if required, as well as a future provision for a Café tenancy on the ground floor. The basement provides for on-site car parking and end-of-trip facilities such as bicycle storage and shower amenities.

Late tenancy negotiations resulted in the addition of a separate pedestrian bridge, spanning a public lane way and linking an adjoining office building on the third level.

The glass-enclosed, steel bridge was a late change in the progress of the works. It involved extensive negotiation with the Council to secure the air rights, fire engineering and the separate building permits required for the structure. The bridge has enabled a single tenant to expand, without the need for relocation, and occupy both office buildings.

From commencement on site, the project was completed and handed over in 15 months.
