Progress for Chevron HQ at Elizabeth Quay

  • Elizabeth Quay

Chevron Australia have appointed Brookfield to build their new 29-storey multi-use tower at Elizabeth Quay with the two companies signing a development contract today.

The Chevron tower will become their Australian headquarters, including more than 54,000 square metres of office floor space and incorporating exhibition spaces, a lobby and conference facilities.

Planning Minister Rita Saffioti said the contract signing was a step closer to making Elizabeth Quay as self-sustainable as possible, with a large permanent workforce complementing new residents in the area.

"Chevron's new headquarters will contribute to delivering a vibrant, activated Elizabeth Quay, which is ultimately expected to be home to 1,400 people and 10,000 workers,” she said.

"It is great to see the area taking shape with Far East Consortium's Towers development recently reaching practical completion and CA & Associates' EQ West development expected to commence works on their site later this year."

Located on the corner of The Esplanade and Barrack Street, the Chevron tower's lower levels will include childcare and gymnasium space with retail tenancies and café/restaurants on the ground floor, to activate large areas of open plaza facing into Elizabeth Quay.

Chevron Australia received development approval for the site in December 2018.

In recommending the proposal for approval, the Central Perth Land Redevelopment Committee noted the unique architectural design and a mix of commercial, dining and entertainment, retail and community land uses that will complement Elizabeth Quay.

Chevron have committed to lease approximately 78 per cent of the tower for a 15-year period as the anchor tenant.

Construction is expected to commence in mid-2020.
