Investors in the MAB can occupy purpose-built tenancies designed to meet specific requirements or smaller modular pre-fabricated tenancy options (called pods) available on flexible lease terms. There are allotments available from 30 to 2,000 square metres.
Purpose-built tenancies will generally require a minimum lease term of five years and the lead time for occupation will be six to 12 months from lease execution depending upon the size and complexity of the design.
Modular ‘pod’ buildings allow flexible tenancy configurations that are attractive, adaptable and highly functional for a variety of uses. Pod modules can be delivered within approximately six weeks providing an agile response to changing accommodation needs.
Indicative gross rental (inclusive of outgoings) for MAB tenancies range from $280 to $320 per square metre of net lettable area per annum.
Investors wishing to build and own their premises within this building can also be accommodated through a long-term ground lease with the South Australian Government (which owns the building).
In addition to MAB tenancies, there is around 1,650sqm available in an existing commercial building on site.
