The new Chevron Australia headquarters are now under construction in Elizabeth Quay, Perth, and are expected to create around 1200 jobs during development and construction, with major flow-on work for local contractors.
Brookfield Properties and Multiplex partnered with Chevron to build the 29-storey tower, which will offer 57,000 square metres of office and retail space capable of housing 3000 people.
The anchor tenant for the building will be Chevron but the building will also include a childcare centre, gymnasium, retail and hospitality spaces.
The tower is estimated to be completed by mid-2023 and will cost $362 million to construct.
Chevron is a key employer in Western Australia, operating the Gorgon and Wheatstone natural gas facilities.
WA Premier Mark McGowan said the State Government is dedicated to making Elizabeth Quay as self-sustainable as possible, with a sizable permanent workforce.
“The new 29-storey tower will add to Perth’s skyline bringing with it more optimism to the property development sector. The build will create thousands of jobs during construction and cements Brookfield and Chevron’s long-term position in Perth,” he said.
“Key infrastructure projects like these signify long-term investment in Western Australia; they help drive growth, create jobs, draw more people into our city and boost our economy. It has been made possible through the successful collaboration of Brookfield, Chevron, Multiplex and the State Government.”
“Creating jobs for Western Australians is my priority. I’m pleased to mark the construction of this job-creating development which will be here for many generations to come. This is a significant long-term investment into Perth and I would like to acknowledge celebrated builder Multiplex and developer Brookfield in working with Chevron to realise this major project.”
