CBRE Global Investors' Zurich Tower in Sydney Completed for German Institution

FRANKFURT 14 December 2020 – CBRE Global Investors announces the opening of Zurich Tower, the new home of Zurich Financial Services Australia (Zurich), at 118 Mount Street, North Sydney. The asset was acquired during construction in 2019 by CBRE Global Investors on behalf of a German institutional client.

The 29-storey purpose-built Zurich headquarters has delivered 20,600 sqm of Grade A office space and includes a two-level podium, a future café space, a sky terrace, three basement car parking levels and 190 bike racks as well as showers and lockers. It overlooks Sydney Harbour and the CBD.

The environmentally sustainable building has been designed to capture renewable energy and sets new benchmarks in thermal performance. It is targeting a 5-Star Green Star – Design & As Built v1.1 rating.

Construction was completed in mid-November 2020 and Zurich staff have now taken up residence.

With Zurich Tower representing the German institutional client´s first acquisition in Australia, Andreas Hepp, Portfolio Manager, CBRE Global Investors, said the event marked an important milestone for their client.

“Zurich Tower has already made an important contribution to North Sydney, one of Australia’s fastest-growing CBDs, and it represented an outstanding opportunity to invest.

“A truly smart and sustainable building has been delivered and we have an asset that we are confident will perform well for both our investor and the tenant.”

Justin Delaney, CEO of Zurich Life & Investments, said the move into Zurich Tower will have significant impacts on Zurich’s team culture.

“Bringing our Sydney employees together, in a fully collaborative space, will further strengthen our culture and help us to build upon our purpose to create a brighter future together.

“Our commitment to creating a sustainable place to work supports Zurich’s global sustainability efforts to minimise our environmental footprint.”
