After 25 years in Hamilton, NSW, property management specialists, Leah Jay, are relocating to purpose-built offices in the new CBD of Newcastle.
Officially opened on Monday, the new offices are located on the ground floor of the recenty-constructed ‘Gateway’ building in Newcastle West.
Leah Jay’s Operations Manager and Director, Cassandra Lantry, explained the shift offered an opportunity to step into the new heart and future of the city.
“Hamilton has been home for us since 1994 but we’re really excited with what’s happening in the city and want to be in the centre of it,” Ms Lantry said.
“This vibrant new space will enable us to continue to grow the business and develop new services for our clients”.
The building provides a world class A Grade office location for Leah Jay. It delivers on a number of key environmental, energy and waste parameters, and provides a beautifully designed space that offers an abundance of natural light and high quality finishes.
Leah Jay’s People and Projects Manager, Pippa Rowntree, has overseen the relocation project, working closely with local developers, builders, architects and designers.
She noted the challenge had been to carve out a unique space for the Leah Jay team that tied in all of the elements of the state-of-the-art construction and also brought to life the style and innovative thinking for which Leah Jay is renowned.
“It’s been amazing being a part of the construction process and planning the design and layout of the new offices. We’ve tried to create a space that fosters a cohesive team environment, provides dedicated break out areas and an ‘innovation’ space featuring new technology,” Ms Rowntree said.
Another drawcard that attracted Leah Jay Directors to the site was its proximity to the Newcastle Transport Interchange. Just a two-minute walk away, the Interchange offers convenient transport access for owners, tenants and staff.
