Monday, October 7, 2019

GWL Realty Advisors has partnered with CBRE Ltd. to actively lease Purdy’s Wharf – one of the most recognizable commercial office buildings in Atlantic Canada.

“We are very excited to work on this iconic Halifax property, and with the renovations, improved green spaces, common area Wi-Fi, access to amenities and unprecedented onsite parking, I believe the existing tenants will love the changes and it will help attract new office occupiers” said Mat Houston of CBRE in the press release.

CBRE has been enlisted to market and lease more than 200,000 sq. ft. of office and retail space that will be available within the three buildings

“We are confident that with the ongoing investments, best in class customer service and amenities, Purdy’s Wharf will continue to attract tenants of all sizes,” added Pascale Roy, vice-president of asset management for GWLRA in the press release.

The 700,000-sq.-ft. Class-AAA office complex was the first building in Atlantic Canada to receive LEED EB: OM Gold Certification and employs various green initiatives guided by BOMA BEST practices. With help from Breakhouse Design, the three buildings have been redesigned with bright modern common areas for social and casual use.

The complex’s seven-storey covered parkade boasts 1,080 stalls, accounting for approximately 20 per cent of the downtown parking inventory. Other amenities include Wi-Fi-enabled communal workspaces; shops and services; covered bicycle parking and lending program; onsite daycare and fitness centre; green outdoor spaces; and water commuter docking.
