Through a thorough search of the market, CDI Experts were made aware of the opportunities found within 157 Ann St. With column-free 431m2 floorplates within the tower floors, the building can offer businesses of 10-20 staff a half-floor opportunity with direct lift exposure.

Caden Research suggests that 8% of deals transacted within the Brisbane CBD thus far in 2022 have been with Businesses moving out of Serviced Office solutions. Business growth out of serviced offices has been a consistent feeder of brokerage requirements, with the trend being that a 6–10-person headcount sees a direct lease outweigh a month-to-month contract from a price point perspective. Further to this point, the average NLA transacted for a tenant coming out of a serviced office is 175sqm although ranges between 90-250sqm.
