Site 9 is due for completion in September this year and is already considered to be among Wellington’s most prestigious buildings. Located on the waterfront, base-isolated with sweeping harbour views, it was designed by leading practice Athfield Architects. It will also be home to other Grade-A tenants including law firm Bell Gully and co-working provider Servcorp.

Jonathan Manns, Head of JLL Wellington, says the move indicates the significant transformation the business is undergoing.

“JLL Wellington’s vision is for a forward-thinking and adaptable workspace that will position the business ahead of the curve. The new office will offer JLL the flexibility and know-how required to effectively respond to and anticipate the needs of our team and clients.

“We’re committed to building the most future-focused, inclusive and collaborative work culture in the city’s real estate market. Our newfound energy and market position demands a new home. This is a statement of who we are today and where we’re going to be tomorrow.”

The fit-out is being delivered by JLL NZ’s Project and Development Services team. It will include a range of working environments, from collaboration areas to quiet rooms and work stations. There’ll also be wide-scale video conferencing options and premium fixtures and fittings.

Site 9 is being delivered by leading New Zealand developer, Willis Bond.

“JLL’s signing means this project is now fully leased prior to construction completion,” says Willis Bond Managing Director – Development, David McGuinness.

“As forward-thinking businesses like JLL look to the future of the workplace, they’re prioritising flexible, premium, resilient office spaces to build their workplace strategies around – the demand here at Site 9 is a testament to this."
