Without a doubt, the road everyone is talking about in Canberra today is Northbourne Avenue. As the gateway to Canberra, the Northbourne corridor now epitomises the city Canberra has become; designed, planned and considered. The new light rail is about to further enhance the precinct and drop individuals to their doorstep. Anyone who has not travelled down Northbourne Avenue in the past three years would struggle to recognise it.
One of the prominent buildings in the CBD is 73 Northbourne Avenue which takes pride of place on the corner of Northbourne Avenue and Barry Drive. The asset is owned by Melbourne based property company, South Haven Group. “Collaboration’ is a business buzz term, yet in a number of respects it is how today’s organization thrives and stands out as a workplace of choice. These considerations formed part of the design brief that South Haven Group gave to their project consultants who fed this back into the asset we see today.” Ian Pratt, CEO, South Haven Group. Intermain as Project Consultants collaborated with South Haven to bring the concepts that sat under these considerations to fruition.
“It’s been a very exciting project as we transform this building to provide high-end amenities and beautiful communal spaces. Our experience and research tell us that quality spaces add value to a business and enhance their success, even improving staff recruitment and retention. I am very proud that South Haven will now have a positive impact in Canberra, not just in the area of commercial property, but also in enabling successful outcomes for its tenants.” Ian Pratt, CEO, South Haven Group
2 rug designs from the Gibbon Group Collection for Tretford Custom Rugs were used in the foyer areas of the space.
