Recently, Preston Rowe Paterson Sydney embarked on an exciting journey across town to 1 Market Street, located right in the heart of the Sydney CBD. This A-grade building is one of 36 properties owned and managed by the Australian property giant Investa.
1 Market Street boasts 32 floors with plenty of natural light in the offices and has enviable views of Darling Harbour and Cockle Bay Wharf. We share the building with leading companies such as Sony Pictures, The Commonwealth Bank of Australia and Nexia.
Walking into 1 Market Street, visitors are welcomed by onsite security, a large and modern space and even a communal library at the reception desk. Downstairs in the basement, the staff has access to on-site parking and “end-of-trip” facilities.
These fantastic “end-of-trip” facilities have made it easier for staff to stay active with; bike racks, showers, lockers and even towels.
We are only 5 minutes’ walk from QVB, 6 minutes’ walk from Town Hall Station and 12 minutes’ walk from Darling Harbour. There is also a café right inside the building and delicious ramen next door. Being in such a central location in the CBD; the Preston Rowe Paterson Sydney staff has been spoilt for choice with a large variety of food and transportation.
Investa implements various communal initiatives to tenants of the building such as yoga classes, running groups and an Integrated Tenant Portal to keep the thousands of building tenants in the loop of what’s going on.
It meets our sustainability values
Being sustainable is one of Investa’s top priorities. Their belief is that “sustainability can provide a pathway to superior long-term investment returns”. They have what is known as a “Green Lease”, which incorporates environmental and social objectives for both tenants and the building. Investa has been able to achieve this whilst maintaining a 4.5-star NABERS rating.
With sustainability being an important part of Preston Rowe Paterson Sydney’s business and continuous improvement strategies, we see this as a perfect fit.
