EastCo is a 14,000m2 commercial building under construction in the thriving municipality of Maroondah. This $105m development, which is due for completion mid-2021, comprises a 10-storey office tower fully pre-committed by the Victorian Department of Transport.
Designed by prominent Melbourne architecture firm Fender Katsalidis to set a new bar for office accommodation in Melbourne's outer east, EastCo marks the next step in the planned evolution of central Ringwood into a satellite CBD.
The tower will contain a ground-floor cafe, four levels of staff carparking and extensive end-of-trip facilities (including more than 130 bicycle racks), while offering unique views towards the Yarra Valley from the upper floors.
Co-location with Eastland not only gives workers doorstep access to the centre’s broad retail and lifestyle offering, but also to the accommodation and conference facilities of the 120-room Sage Hotel. Easily reached via the neighbouring Ringwood Train Station and bus interchange, or Eastlink freeway, EastCo neighbours the dining venues of Town Square and plentiful recreation opportunities.
EastCo is part of a new hub for professional life and public services that extends the unrivalled amenity of the Eastland ecosystem beyond premium retail, destination dining, entertainment opportunities and accommodation.
The tower's construction brings QICGRE's investment in Ringwood to more than $200m since the shopping centre's major redevelopment in 2016, with the aim of enabling the people of the eastern suburbs to work, shop and play close to home.
