AFL premiership fancies GWS Giants have taken up a lease for a 77 sqm Docklands suite near the league’s headquarters in the Melbourne CBD.

Samuel Friend and Stephen Land of Fitzroys negotiated the three-year lease with a two-year option at Suite 101/198 Harbour Esplanade, just moments from AFL House and the adjacent AFL-owned Marvel Stadium.

The Giants agreed to pay $450 per sqm with 3% annual increases for its new Melbourne offices.

Friend said more than 50 enquiries were received during the campaign.

He stated, "the suite offers ample natural light with fantastic views west overlooking the harbour and towards the Bolte Bridge, and as expected attracted tenants from a range of industries including tech companies, law firms, not-for-profits and media agencies."

“For the Giants, the suite presented an excellent opportunity to set up an office conveniently close to AFL House and enhance their communication capabilities with the league.

“Spaces of this type attract a great deal of attention when they become available, as vacancies across Docklands have continued to firm in the first several months of 2019 and are now at the tightest level of any of Melbourne’s central precincts," Friend concluded.
