A $40 million twin office building project in Fountain Gate is expected to create about 600 jobs.
CubeOne, which will house 39 office suites for local, small-to-medium enterprises, was officially launched by developer MAB Corporation on 26 October.
The buildings are designed by Watson Young, providing flexible layouts, shared meeting facilities and cutting-edge office technology.
It is the corporation’s first commercial office project in Melbourne’s south east.
MAB commercial projects director Andrew White said “satellite” commercial precincts were growing with the desire for people to work close to home.
“MAB saw an opportunity in Casey similar to what we have experienced in the northern regions of Melbourne.”
The site was also chosen for its freeway access, public transport links, bike tracks and walkability.
At the launch, Casey chief executive Mike Tyler said the development would help bring to life the Fountain Gate – Narre Warren precinct as a “premier CBD for Melbourne’s south-east”.
It was a “vitally important” project to improve local employment and liveability in Casey’s rapidly expanding population and economy, Mr Tyler said.
“With more than 70 per cent of City of Casey and Shire of Cardinia residents commuting outside of the municipality to work each day, more opportunities to work locally are vitally important to our residents.”
