Project Summary

The 8,181sqm (NLA) building, has a typical floor plate of 1,275sqm, with the ability for it to be split in half. Precinct’s vision is for 10 Madden to be home to a range of occupiers, across a range of sizes.

Staff will be able to utilise the best in class end of trip facilities within the building such as bike parking and showers.

The seven level building with one basement level incorporates two retail tenancies on the ground floor and a pocket park at the front of the building, 10 Madden has been well considered to meet the needs of its occupiers. The building will seamlessly flow into the adjacent laneways, encouraging connections with surrounding businesses and occupiers within 10 Madden.

The facade includes a combination of curtain wall (with glazed and fixed elements) from ground to level 6 and shop front glazing to the ground level. There are small balconies at level 1. The side core is characterised by a "green" screen (planting / vines) which will cover the escape stairs once established.
