Charter Hall rocks with BHP in Adelaide tower deal
• by

• Nick Lenaghan

• Matthew Cranston

Charter Hall is close to securing a substantial pre-commitment from Australia's biggest miner, BHP, for its $250 million office redevelopment next to the Adelaide GPO.

Work on the 19-floor GPO Exchange is already under way off the back of a pre-commitment from the South Australian Attorney General's department last year for the tower.

The government agency took out about half of the 24,500-square-metre redevelopment around the historic GPO.
The pre-commitment from BHP is understood to be in the order of 10,000 sq m.
The tenancy, if finalised as expected, would take the building to close to 90 per cent full, vindication of Charter Hall's decision to get started last year in a market where major leasing deals are less frequent.
BHP already has a much smaller presence nearby on Grenfell Street.
Multiple hubs
The larger tenancy in the new Charter Hall tower is expected to accommodate a new high-tech hub that would be used to direct operations at the massive Olympic Dam mine.
Known as an IROC – integrated remote operations centre – BHP has already set up similar tech hubs in Perth and Brisbane to manage mining operations in those states.
While Olympic Dam has legendary status, it has been a long-time underperformer for its owner.

But last November BHP unveiled an ambitious plan for expansion at the South Australian mine.

The latest plan for Olympic Dam would expand surface infrastructure including the smelter, mill and refinery while unlocking higher volumes of higher-grade copper ore from the mine's southern area.
A high-tech hub in Adelaide could effectively transfer much of the labor potentially involved in that effort from the dusty fields at Olympic Dam into highly-skilled workforce in the centre of Adelaide.

They were still pumping concrete at 9pm tonight. This could go up pretty quick given the long hours they're putting in.

in reply to Ben's last post re BHP - I am really encouraged that something is finally going to happen. With ther developing medical precinct and the recent ship construction deal SA looks to be coming out of 'the valley' of death earlier and better than I expected. Such buildings as this (and flow on's) suggest big CBD development ahead!!!
