Flinders Centre - the newest state-of-the-art commercial office building in the heart of Bankstown’s CBD – is now officially open for business.
Hundreds of invited guests including Mayor Khal Asfour, Tania Mihailuk – Member for Bankstown and ClubsNSW Chairman Peter Newell OAM, gathered on Level 9 of the office tower to watch the Hon. Jason Clare MP – Member for Blaxland, and Bankstown Sports Club President John Murray OAM cut a ribbon and unveil a plaque to commemorate the event.
“This state-of-the-art commercial tower in the heart of the Bankstown CBD is an exciting new addition to the Bankstown skyline that will create local jobs and help boost our local area. I congratulate the Bankstown Sports Club on the official opening of this fantastic building,” Mr Clare said.
Located on the corner of Restwell Street and Greenfield Parade, adjacent to Bankstown Sports, Flinders Centre sets a new benchmark for commercial buildings in the City of Bankstown. The 9-storey tower offers contemporary, efficient and sustainable A-grade office space, with 360-degree views of Sydney. It is centrally located, in close proximity to major motorways, a bus interchange and Bankstown train station, which will soon be upgraded to a Metro station.
Setting a benchmark in design and quality, the Flinders Centre has been awarded a 5-Star Green Star – Office Design Certified rating, which represents Australian Excellence in building design. Green Star assesses the sustainable design, construction and operation of buildings, fit outs and communities in Australia, encouraging companies to become more environmentally friendly, to create a healthy place for their employees and build a better future for all.
There are eight tenants currently leasing space within the Flinders Centre, including UFC Gym Bankstown, Unity Bank, Ronis Real Estate, St George Business Bank, ANZ Business Bank, GLEX Group, Coverforce Insurance and Flinders Convenience Store, with several other businesses currently in negotiations.
Bankstown Sports CEO Mark Condi says it has been incredible to watch this project take shape from the ground up.
“I have always been passionate about Bankstown and while the city has had almost everything over the years, the one thing it lacked was top quality commercial office space. Flinders Centre fills that void and offers so much more to tenants and guests. There is no other building anywhere in Sydney that has this type of office space with the facilities that surround it. Once you walk through our doors, you don’t need to leave”.
