Macquarie Bank, 1 Shelley Street Sydney 

As of 13 July 2009, Macquarie Business Investment Services together with Macquarie Relationship Banking staff will be relocating from 20 Bond street, Sydney to a new office space in the King Street Wharf.

This new iconic development located at 1 Shelly Street adds a very compelling reason to be placed in Sydney’s Western Corridor. One Shelley Street, which comprises 33,000sqm of Net Lettable Area (NLA) across 11 storeys, will be wholly occupied by Macquarie Bank and will accommodate approximately 3,000 workers. The floor plates range from approximately 1,950sqm to 3,650sqm.

As far as iconic buildings are concerned, One Shelley Street is set to become one of the most recognisable commercial premises in Sydney. The development by Multiplex consists of 33,000 square metres of office space over 11 storeys and will feature a unique ‘diagrid’ support façade. Upon completion in mid 2009, One Shelley Street will be the only diagrid constructed building in Sydney.

The $350 million development will be a state-of-the-art building employing cutting edge technologies throughout.

The development includes retail at street level and five basement levels including; a bus interchange, car parking for tenants and the public. In addition a range of innovative environmentally sustainable development initiatives including passive chilled beams and harbour water for heat rejection, have been incorporated into the buildings design which will be aiming to achieve an industry benchmark 6 Star Green Star rating and be a showpiece for environmental sustainability.

Occupation of the building will take place in stages from July 2009. The building benefits from plenty of natural light and provides an open spacious feel, with views over the harbor.

The King Street Wharf precinct (consisting of other new developments such as; Amex, KPMG and Westpac) is set to have over 20,000 people working in the area in 2009 and is now the gateway to the East Darling harbor precinct. With this development complete it will finally restore public access to this part of the harbor for the first time in many years.
