A sophisticated commercial project in the heart of West Perth
Posted 02 . 09 . 20
Stirling Capital is celebrating the completion of works at its 3 Ord Street commercial property in West Perth. A stunning transformation has taken place at the site, with the original property taken from a dated, 60s brick design to a striking modern structure boasting luxury amenities.
The building’s original brick façade was entirely removed and replaced with a double-glazed curtain wall – an update that has turned an unassuming building into an eye-catching local landmark. Office areas are fully refurbished, ensuring an interior that is as impressive as the new exterior.
Internally, a grand entry point makes a statement upon arrival, thanks to soaring double-height ceilings and a feature wall made up of lush greenery. This entry offers two waiting areas for visitors, adding to an overall sense of spaciousness and luxury.
The building’s facilities continue this luxury experience for tenants, mirroring the standard of a five-star hotel. End of trip facilities offer so much more than standard showers, lockers and change rooms, providing an unprecedented level of comfort and style for users.
Stirling Capital Executive Chairman Bob Reinecke said the developer had made concerted effort to incorporate an unprecedented standard of design and finish at 3 Ord Street.
“The building is not huge, and therefore doesn’t have to accommodate masses of people,” he said.
“We knew from the start that the focus was to offer quality over quantity and the end result is a commercial property that feels much more like a luxury hotel than standard offices.”
3 Ord Street’s location near the corner of Havelock Street provides tenants with direct access to the west end of the Perth CBD and the West Perth business hub of Hay Street, which includes cafes, bars, restaurants, banks, food courts and retail. The area is well serviced by the CAT bus service which provides free, efficient local transport, and City West train station and north and south freeway entries are easily accessible.
Knight Frank Associate Director Sallese Wilmot-Barr said that in addition to its enviable location, 3 Ord Street offered a number of other important advantages over the traditional property landscape in West Perth.
“What we’re experiencing in central Perth is an influx of interest from tenants seeking spaces under 500 square metres, who also want a high level of amenity and fantastic end of trip facilities” Ms Wilmot-Barr said.
“This can be problematic if they’re looking for a tenancy in West Perth because a lot of the commercial property in the area that has been upgraded to a high level both externally and internally, is made up of larger tenancies in buildings that can’t be split to accommodate the smaller requirements.
“Importantly, 3 Ord Street offers opportunities for tenancies under 300 square metres with a spec fit-out and access to truly spectacular amenities and end of trip facilities – it’s not a combination we see as frequently in this area.”
In addition to its impressive design and luxurious facilities, 3 Ord Street also boasts significant sustainability features including rooftop solar panelling and upgraded mechanical and electrical systems. With these upgrades in place, the building’s enhanced environmental performance is expected to see its previous Nabers rating of 3.5 stars updated to 4 or 5 stars. As a result of these upgrades, 3 Ord Street also offers tenants lower outgoings – estimated at $128 per square metre per annum.
