International law firm Allens will leave the Riverside Centre for Brisbane’s newest premium tower, 480 Queen Street.
The company has signed an eight-year lease with an option on the 31-level Grocon-developed tower which Dexus Property Group and its wholesale fund bought last year for $543.9 million. It will move into 4000sq m of space on levels 24 to 26 when the tower opens its doors in February, 2016.
Allens will join other corporate tenants, BHP Billiton, Herbert Smith Freehills and The Executive Centre in the building which is now 50 per cent precommitted.
Allens Linklaters, a leading international law firm, appointed SHAPE Australia to deliver its new two and a half level office fitout within the 480 Queen Street building, Brisbane. The firm acquired the new increased office facility to adopt a fresh approach to its operations.
Set out on two and half levels, the design scheme of this 4,150 m2 fitout is contemporary yet classic, combining neutral and textured finishes, vintage inspired furniture with modern architectural detailing.
Staff and clients are welcomed via the stylish reception on level 26, that flows into flexible meeting spaces, and provides a combination of audio and visual capabilities.
The fitout also boasts: a commercial kitchen that supports a full time catering team with capacity to serve 20 delegates; an interconnecting staircase to link the floors internally; Partner offices located in the core and perimeter; a flexible breakout area with library; a comms room and IT build room and print stations and central resource area.
