Health Tenant Secures New Home Within University Hill Medical Precinct
MAB has now completed its latest development 30 Janefield Drive at University Hill.
MAB has leased 1,074mÂ² to a not-for-profit organisation which provides health care to almost 10,000 people in Melbourne, regional Victoria, New South Wales and New Zealand. The new office space will serve as one of four key hubs to service Melbourne’s north, with approximately 40 full time staff operating on any given day to support 300 nurses in the Bundoora and Mill Park area.
MAB’s Director of Commercial Projects, Andrew White said the addition of the new tenant to 30 Janefield Drive â€“ University Hill’s fifth stand-alone commercial building was a great fit for the medical precinct and will complement RMIT’s state of the art new premises for its School of Health Sciences who also occupy the building.
“We’re pleased to be welcoming the new health care tenant to University Hill. The organisation provides an excellent service to the local community,” said Mr White.
“We now have a strong mix of retail, medical, finance, construction, engineering and business consultants at University Hill â€“ which ultimately means jobs for local residents close to where they live.”
“Businesses see the benefits of establishing themselves at University Hill alongside State and Federal Government agencies, local, national and international companies such as the Department of State Development and Business Innovation, Baptcare, Westpac Bank, Continental, Australia Post, VicRoads and Coles,” said Mr White.
MAB’s award-winning University Hill project has set a benchmark for Melbourne in delivering new communities in Melbourne’s growth areas. University Hill is 104 hectares in area and is a prime example of MAB’s approach to delivering integrated mixed-use communities. With the new tenant coming to the health precinct at University Hill, the project already has delivered 2,500 jobs and around 400 new businesses.
“When MAB commenced the project in 2005, we established a clear vision with the City of Whittlesea to create a place where jobs were close to where people live and a strong focus on increasing the level of white collar employment and the market has been attracted to MAB’s integrated mixed-use model”, said Mr White.
