Precinct 21 set to get city heart beating

By Chris Lees

It’s hoped a new multimillion-dollar commercial precinct will be the catalyst for more retail, food and beverage stores in Townsville’s city centre. Precinct 21, a five-level office building at 21 Stoke St and the former offices of AECOM, revealed its $10 million transformation last night.

Thirdi Group director of sales and marketing Luke Berry said it was an important site for Townsville’s CBD, with office workers the key to reactivating other commercial offerings like retail, food and beverage outlets in the city.

“The aim is to attract tenants of a scale that will have a positive impact on other commercial offerings in the city and also attract new businesses,” he said.

“Above all, this refurbished building presents an unmatched opportunity for commercial tenants to secure a first-class office space in the absolute heart of the central business district.”

Mr Berry said millions of dollars of internal and external construction had transformed the site into 5800sq m of A-grade commercial leasing space.

“Precinct 21 is located in a high profile position on the corner of Stokes and Sturt streets with fantastic branding opportunities for tenants,” he said.

“The open-plan layout provides flexibility for tenants to custom fit their space to suit their requirements and with an average of 1000sq m floor plates over five levels, there is plenty of space to adapt with changing needs.”

The Third Group acquired the site through E Property Group, which has been retained to manage its leasing.
