The Brief

Schindler Lifts, a leading provider of innovative mobility solutions, recognised the need to revitalise its Australian headquarters in South Sydney. Having occupied its previous site for over 15 years, the company sought a fresh start and engaged Tenant CS to help relocate its office and warehouse to a more modern and strategically positioned site.

The Results

Tenant CS embarked on a comprehensive search that involved sending a detailed brief to the market and exploring various built-to-suit options. 

Through careful negotiation and strategic planning, Tenant CS secured the deal for a new site by leveraging a pre-commitment agreement. This allowed the landlord, Charter Hall, to construct a multi-level warehouse with state-of-the-art facilities - the first of its kind in Australia.

Tenant CS also negotiated:

  • A below-market rent (the timing of the lease finalisation proved fortuitous, occurring just before the industrial market heated up. Today, the rental rate would be considered 50% below market)
  • An above-market incentive
  • Prominent signage rights onto Gardeners Road, ensuring excellent brand exposure. 
  • For the landlord to cover the tenant representation fee in addition to the exceptional savings package

'Significant savings across our portfolio'

Thanks to Tenant CS’ professional approach, we never missed a rent review, lease expiry date or market opportunity. Better yet, we were able to generate significant savings across our portfolio.
