A new office for Johnson & Johnson Australia and New Zealand that will see the company's different businesses co-located in a new Sydney headquarters.
The company's Consumer Health, Medical Devices, Pharmaceutical and Vision businesses will move from their current three locations in Sydney to the single site at Khartoum Road in Macquarie Park.
"The decision to co-locate all Sydney employees follows similar initiatives in 35 cities around the world, with other employees across Australia and New Zealand already co-located in Auckland, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide," said the company in a statement, adding the move would take place towards the end of 2023.
The announcement follows the entry into an exclusive agreement with property group Stockland to negotiate the terms of a lease for the new office facility.
According to Sue Martin, the managing director of Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices, “We anticipate our future space will facilitate connections across the different parts of the Johnson & Johnson business, its customers and the community. We see this as an opportunity to continue to bring diverse thinking together, where everyone can be at their best.
“This year has seen an unprecedented change in the way we all work. Our new office will be designed to ensure we support work flexibility, and the opportunity to connect and collaborate with purpose. This balance will look different for different people. Having the opportunity to design a new office, incorporating new ways of working, with spaces that are functionally designed with an increased focus on connection, will mean we can address this need.”
The new M_Park commercial precinct will be located at 11 Khartoum Road, Macquarie Park, adjacent to the existing Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices site.
The precinct is proposed to have a state-of-the-art office, co-working, retail, cafés and conference facilities, with the proposed new building to be on the corner of Khartoum and Talavera Roads.
The company said it will sell Stockland the existing Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices property at 1-5 Khartoum Road and it is anticipated the site will be incorporated into later stages of the M_Park development.
Johnson & Johnson has had a presence in Macquarie Park since 1967.
“We see the decision to work with Stockland on the proposed development of a new home for the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies in Macquarie Park as a fitting way to acknowledge our heritage as a founding company of the precinct while delivering a state-of-the-art facility,” added Ms Martin.
