Jointly owned by Investa Commercial Property Fund (ICPF) and Investa Office Fund (IOF) and developed by Leighton Properties, Jemena’s 13 year lease spans levels 11-16 and accounts for over 12,000 sqm of office space.
Jemena is consolidating from three separate locations at Mount Waverley, Forrest Hill and Docklands, into the one location. The building meets a number of the organisation’s key business requirements, including large floorplates and contiguous space over multiple floors.

We look forward to working closely with Jemena to help them create and maintain a transformative, sustainable work environment for their business and their current and future workforce.”
The Jemena lease is one of the largest leasing transactions in Melbourne this year. The firm joins several major anchor tenants, including law firm Corrs Chambers Westgarth, Leighton Contractors and Virgin Active Health Club.
