Mirvac’s flagship West Australian office tower, Allendale Square, has secured a range of high quality retail tenants as it launches a new name for the precinct, Underground at Allendale Square.
The new tenants include 18 food, beverage and service businesses including Perth’s iconic Mary Street Bakery, Mo Espresso, Three Grains and Timeless Beauty as well as old favourites Lalla Rookh Bar and Eating House, Bellini Barber, Lunches Down Under and Zensaki in the 1,600sqm precinct. The precinct will feature improved access, seating and wifi to cater to Allendale Square’s tenants, the wider community and visitors to the area.
Mary Street Bakery is looking forward to opening their second city store at Allendale Square. Co-Owner of Mary Street Bakery, Michael Forde says, “The building’s great location and beautiful design caught our imagination. We already have a store at the western end of the city and thought there was a need for another store at the eastern end.”
“We’ll have a large alfresco area for people to sit and enjoy brunch, which is what really attracted us to the site. The building is going to be stunning with a spectacular glass atrium and being opened out onto the street. We are excited to reach the corporate market with this city store, as our other two stores are suburban based. We get a lot of requests to be in the city, so it’s great to be able to provide this option for our customers.”
Mirvac’s Group Executive of Office MPT, Andrew Butler said, “We’ve secured premium retail tenants to provide quality dining options for Allendale Square’s tenants and the wider community. With the Allendale Square office tower now over 95 per cent leased, Underground is set to become a thriving modern hub for workers to meet, dine and relax.”
The office tower at Allendale Square is undergoing an extensive refurbishment including a remodeled lobby, brand new end of trip facilities, upgraded lifts and the conversion of level 31 to office space. The precinct will be brought to life with a public artwork by artist Anne Neil and an architecturally striking glass canopy framing the entrance to the office tower, designed by Christou Design Group.
Two retail podiums will be created along St George’s Terrace to provide premium-dining options for visitors. Access to the retail precinct will also be revitalised with upgraded escalators and entrance-ways, improved way-finding and new retailers flanking the Sherwood Court entrance to the retail precinct.
The refurbishment is progressing with major works well underway and expected for completion in May.
