Equifax moves in as anchor tenant at North Sydney’s Blue & William
- 10 Oct 2023
Global data, analytics and technology company Equifax has officially opened the doors to its new workplace at Blue & William in North Sydney. Located on the prime intersection of Blue and William streets, the 10-storey development is owned by Keppel REIT, with Lendlease as the development and investment manager.
As Blue & William’s anchor tenant, Equifax occupies more than 4,350 square metres across levels 5 to 7, following a relocation from two separate offices in North Sydney to bring its people together in a new modern and sustainable workplace.
Designed by global architecture and design studio Woods Bagot, the development features the latest in workplace design with a landscaped wellness garden, and further open spaces for outdoor meetings and events, an on-site family run business, Northbrew Café, a premium lobby and end-of-trip facilities to support healthier ways to commute and connect.
The highlight of Blue & William is the multiple terraces offering panoramic views of Sydney Harbour that can be used for outdoor meetings and collaboration or for hosting events.
Blue & William achieved practical completion in April 2023 and has maintained strong interest from potential tenants with five of the ten floors now leased. Equifax and Northbrew Café are the first occupants to be welcomed into the building, with other tenants, including global consulting firm, Human Synergistics, to follow in early 2024.
The building is designed to achieve the 5 Star Green Star Design and As Built Rating by the Green Building Council of Australia, as well as the 5.5 Stars National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS) Base Building Energy Rating.
