The Westgate is open

Ample office space on market.

SUBIACO’S newest office building has opened for business across the road from Daglish Station.

Motorists and commuters along Railway Road have been watching as the attractive glass complex was constructed on the corner of Bagot Road over the last 18 months.

It is now the base of 12 businesses, including Hegney Property Group, Ledge Finance and Matrix Accountants.

Developer Blackburne Property Group invested $45 million in the 5500sqm development, which features a luxurious lobby, extensive end-of-trip facilities
(such as showers and bike lock-up) and a 5.5 star NABERS design.

Karibu Café, run by the owners of Claremont’s Kahawa Café, has also opened on the ground floor.

“It was a priority to attract a leading, established operator to run the ground floor café,” Blackburne’s development director Jarrad Sizer said. “We ran an expression of interest campaign and handpicked the best. It means our tenants can have top-class coffee, food and a place to meet without going into Subiaco”

Seventy per cent of Westgate sold off-the-plan;, with most buyers being owner-occupiers with medium-size businesses that previously operated in Subiaco or West Perth.

“Many people looking to buy were companies that rent in the CBD or West Perth and were concerned about traffic congestion and parking. Westgate has one bay for every 38sq m, which is more than double what tenants in the city can obtain” Westgate also offered a more luxurious building at a significantly lower cost than the CBD or Subiaco Centro, Mr Sizer added.

There is one remaining lot on both the ground level and first level, as well as four lots on the top floor, originally set aside for the developers own office. These can be purchased together or individually.
