TIAA Henderson Real Estate (TH Real Estate) has today agreed

office building 101 Miller Street, North Sydney, Australia,
including the connecting Greenwood Plaza retail complex, for a
purchase price in excess of AUD$300m (c.£165m).
TH Real Estate has acquired the 50% share on behalf of TIAACREF.
101 Miller Street and Greenwood Plaza are strategically located
in the heart of the North Sydney CBD, with multiple direct
access points to North Sydney Railway station. The premium
grade office tower comprises 27 levels of office
accommodation over approximately 37,549 sq m of lettable
space. Major tenants include both State and Federal
Government departments, Genworth and AGL. The office tower
is 99% occupied with a 5-star NABERS Energy rating and is the
pre-eminent office location in the North Sydney market.
Greenwood Plaza is the dominant shopping centre in North
Sydney providing approximately 8,777 sq m of lettable retail
and food tenancies spanning three levels. The centre is 100%
occupied and supermarket anchored, including 98 specialty
retail and kiosks serving over 18 million people each year.
The remaining 50% share of the landmark office tower and
dominant shopping centre will continue to be owned and
operated by the Mirvac Group, with whom TH Real Estate has
developed a strong working relationship.
The deal marks TH Real Estate’s second significant acquisition
in the Australian market, over the past month, following its
75% interest in regional shopping centre Mt Ommaney Centre
in Brisbane.
