Telstra Exchange site sold

Telstra Exchange site sold

David Sinn, Herbert Smith Freehills

Two firms have advised on a Malaysian developer’s record-breaking acquisition of a Telstra Exchange site in the Melbourne CBD.

Firms: Herbert Smith Freehills (S P Setia); Arnold Bloch Leibler (Telstra)

Deal: S P Setia acquired a Telstra Exchange site in Melbourne's CBD.

Value: $101 million

Area: M&A

Key players: The Herbert Smith Freehills team was led by partner David Sinn (pictured), who was supported by senior associate Adrian Jones.

Deal significance: Malaysia’s biggest listed developer, S P Setia, acquired a 400 square metre Telstra Exchange site in the Melbourne CBD overlooking Carlton Gardens and fronting both Exhibition and La Trobe Streets.

According to Herbert Smith Freehills, the $101 million deal marks a record-breaking price tag for a Melbourne CBD land purchase.

The acquisition follows the developer’s successful Fulton Lane and Parque developments in inner-city Melbourne, and recent acquisitions in the Melbourne suburbs of Carnegie and Prahran.

"We were pleased to assist S P Setia in securing this landmark site against stiff competition from a number of local and international developers," HSF lead partner David Sinn said.

"This record-breaking result shows the continued appetite for premium development sites in the Melbourne CBD."
