MR CORBELL (continuing):
metres at $120 per metre per annum plus GST. The Office of Fair Trading at 12 Moore Street had a ground floor shopfront of 183 square metres at $342.80 per square metre per annum plus GST.
The new tenancy arrangements are at 255 Canberra Avenue. The Registrar-General's Office is on the ground floor and includes births, deaths and marriages plus storage of 100 square metres. The total tenancy is 375 square metres at $160 per square metre per annum plus GST. The Registrar-General's Office and the Office of Fair Trading are on level 1, with 800 square metres, approximately, at 160 square metres per annum plus GST. Both areas will be remeasured on completion of the fit-out. The annual rental savings of relocating to Fyshwick are $218,000 per annum plus GST. So, as members can see, it provides a significant rental saving.
Dr Foskey also asked about the North Building as an alternative. The proposed vacant space on level 1 of the North Building is only 432 square metres, which is significantly smaller than required and does not have suitable public access as it is within the Canberra Museum and Gallery. I am informed that this space will be used for a tenant more compatible with the gallery and its hours of operation.
