Pacific National signs for two floors of Blue & William in North Sydney

  • 26 Feb 2024
Keppel REIT Management Limited and Lendlease today announced that Australia’s largest private rail freight company, Pacific National, will move its corporate office to Blue & William, located at 2 Blue Street in North Sydney

The move will see Pacific National occupy approximately 3,350 square metres across the first and second levels of the ten-storey A-grade office building. 

Pacific National intends to fit-out the modern workplace with a design that will promote collaboration, connection and communication, and relocate by September 2024. 

Designed by global architecture and design studio Woods Bagot, Blue & William offers a landscaped wellness garden, harbour views, open spaces for 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. 

Blue & William reached practical completion in April 2023. Global data, analytics and technology company and anchor tenant Equifax officially opened the doors to its new workplace in October last year, with other tenants, including global culture and leadership consultancy firm, Human Synergistics.
The development was acquired by Keppel REIT in December 2021. Lendlease developed and is managing the building, expanding its footprint in the area and bolstering its commercial development pipeline in North Sydney, which is undergoing rapid transformation.

The building is targeting 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.
