Significant investment in Health and Wellbeing at Nexus
Salta Properties is currently undertaking a major $10 million public realm upgrade to Nexus Business Park in Mulgrave, one of Melbourne’s most sought-after commercial developments in the South East.
Salta Properties Managing Director, Sam Tarascio, said that significant investments have been made into state of the art amenities at Nexus so that the estate continues to be a first-class business park for tenants and their employees.
“Work culture has changed significantly in Melbourne due to the extensive lockdown in 2020 and employees are now more than ever seeking to work in environments that offer amenities with a focus on health and wellbeing.
“Nexus is a place where businesses want to stay, so we are working hard to listen to our tenants to meet their needs by reinvesting into the estate so that their employees continue to enjoy coming to work,” said Mr Tarascio.
“Nexus Mulgrave is unique in that the buildings are owned, managed, and therefore upgraded by one company, Salta Properties,” Mr Tarascio added.
The latest revitalisation works at Nexus includes three architecturally designed terraces and connecting foyers at 2, 4 and 6 Nexus Court, providing tenants access to the much-desired outdoor spaces. A 1.4km running track is also being installed, as well as a seven-station outdoor gym circuit and two outdoor picnic areas.
These upgrades are in addition to the existing array of premium amenities offered across the Nexus Business Park, which includes generous car parking, three cafes, childcare centre, 24 hour gym and wellness centre, futsal and basketball court, netball and tennis court, plus a BBQ area and landscaped terrace.
The architect behind the tenant focused changes, Nik Tabain from Gray Puksand, is confident that these refurbishments address the needs of a 21st century workplace, which now puts human experience front and centre.
“I’ve always believed that architecture must respond to the human condition. Decisions regarding scale and spatial volumes, materiality, permeability, aspect and connection to nature must all be made through the lens of the human experience,” said Mr Tabain.
“With everyone working from home last year, evaluation of work-life balance has been a focus. Through the changes being made at Nexus we have tried to reflect all the best aspects of working from home; convenience, comfort and flexibility,” he concluded.
The decision to invest and further expand the high quality amenity which already exists at Nexus Mulgrave, was in direct response to feedback received via the online Equiem portal, which encouraged tenants to communicate directly with their landlord, Salta Properties.
“Despite the fact that the buildings and the estate already presented exceptionally well, we decided that we wanted to unequivocally position Nexus as the premium office estate in Melbourne – and our $10 million investment in estate upgrade works demonstrates our determination to do so” said Mr. Tarascio.
Works at Nexus are due to be completed May 2021. For more information visit: https://nexuscorporate.com.au/
