Rook Salinger secures prime George Street location for Virgin Active

Rook Salinger secures prime George Street location for Virgin Active

Rook Salinger was engaged by Virgin Active to identify and secure suitable space for a new Virgin Active fitness centre in the northern end of Sydney’s CBD.

Given the very specific property requirements set out by Virgin, an extensive off-market search process was undertaken. This identified a number of sites for consideration by Virgin management which was narrowed down to levels 6 and 7 at 60 Margaret Street. This high-profile building on the corner of George Street is adjacent to Wynyard Station and Virgin have entered into a 10 year lease for 2,460sqm of podium space with direct access to street level.

The new high-end fitness and wellness centre will spread across two floors above the popular retail hub of the Met Centre, providing a highly visible and easily accessible location along the route of the new light rail line.

Rook Salinger director David Black who worked on the deal over a number of years, congratulated building owner and manager Mirvac on signing Virgin stating, “This is an ideal use of the space that will be a valuable benefit to businesses in the 36 level tower and to neighbouring CBD properties.”
