Hamilton Harbour Welcomes Two Major Tenants
John Campbell 29 June 2012
Hamilton Harbour is on its way to becoming Brisbane’s newest retail, business, dining and lifestyle destination with Woolworths signing on as key anchor tenant and Domino’s Pizza Enterprises Limited as its first major commercial tenant.
Hamilton Harbour project director John Campbell said the retail precinct on Kingsford Smith Drive is expected to be popular amongst residents of Hamilton Harbour’s 660 apartments and workers at its KSD commercial office space (under construction, set to open late 2012), as well as the surrounding community.
“Hamilton Harbour is home to a mix of singles, couples and families and many are drawn to the convenience of shopping and dining on their doorstep, making it an ideal match for retailers like Woolworths,” said Mr Campbell.
“Boutique precincts that can provide a superior shopping experience in a highly attractive and localised shopping environment are increasingly popular with customers.”
WOOLWORTHS SIGNS LEASE
Woolworths has signed a 12 year lease on 1,126sqm of prime retail space at the riverside location and will move into the precinct in 2013.
“We are always looking for opportunities to tailor the right offer to our customers and we believe we will be able to offer customers in Hamilton Harbour convenience and choice. The Hamilton Harbour store will provide customers with opportunities for top up shopping, along with ready made meals and other selections that will cater to local shoppers’ needs” said Woolworths Property Manager Sean Wallington.
DOMINO'S NEW HEADQUARTERS
Commercial tenant demand for KSD has also been strong, with the Brisbane fringe office market experiencing a rapid tightening of vacancy.
John Campbell, Hamilton Harbour project director, said welcoming Domino’s to the precinct was a significant and exciting milestone for developers Leighton Properties and Devine.
Domino’s has secured 2,513sqm of commercial office space across two of the building’s five levels for its new headquarters, in a 15 year lease.
Domino’s Chief Development Officer, Pat McMichael, said 140 staff will move to KSD in early 2013 from the company’s current Albion headquarters, with the new space providing additional room to grow.
“We are excited to be moving to a new office at Hamilton Harbour. Growth in our business has seen us bring key functions inhouse and we need additional space and better amenities to cater for our employees,” Mr McMichael said.
The opening of the new retail and shopping hub will also coincide with the completion of the KSD commercial precinct and Hamilton Harbour’s third and final residential tower, the 20 level Riverside Hamilton. Existing residential towers Hamilton One and Hamilton Two were completed in late 2011 and are now home to hundreds of residents.
