ANZ House is a modern office building on the north-western edge of the Canberra Central Business District, just one block from Canberra’s main thoroughfare, Northbourne Avenue. The upper floors have views towards Black Mountain to the west and Parliament House to the south. The adjacent buildings were all constructed during the mid-1980s, ensuring the immediate area maintains the quality of the immediate surroundings. Most of the floors offer more than 1,070m2 of net lettable area. There are six levels of office accommodation and the ground floor is also suitable for club, restaurant, shopfront, health and gym facilities. The split-level basement has secure reserved parking for 74 cars, as well as disabled facilities and showers for tenants.
The building is a reinforced concrete-frame construction with a combination of blockwork walls and windows and double-glazed windows. In 1999, the building underwent a major refurbishment, including a new foyer/awning, new building management system and an upgrade of the lifts. In 2007, the building was enhanced to 4.5 NABERS rating. This involved upgrades of all services including light, mechanical and hydraulics. The foyer was also refurbished and works to lifts have started.
The centralised CBD location is close to the Canberra Centre, the Melbourne Building and the entertainment hub of Braddon. This gives it easy access to a wide range of amenities, including childcare facilities, shops, banks, the post office, cinemas, and varied cafes, restaurants, takeaways and bars. NDH purchased the building in 1996 and extensively refurbished it in 2007. Major tenants include:
