The new Department of Finance, Services and Innovation office in Mann St, Gosford, officially opened its doors on February 27, promising to bring 300 more state government jobs to the Gosford CBD.
Minister for Finance, Services and Property, Victor Dominello, said relocating 300 jobs to Gosford was part of the Government’s commitment to support job growth in regional centres.
“The development of this site will help revitalise the Gosford CBD and deliver an ongoing cash injection for the Central Coast,” Dominello said.
“New public service employees living and working in Gosford will see increased consumer spending, providing a boost for local businesses and the local economy.”
Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, said the facility was expected to provide a stimulus to the broader Central Coast economy of more than $8.2m per annum, and candidate for Gosford, Sue Dengate, said it would have a significant positive impact for the entire region.
The new mixed-use, A-grade commercial office building unofficially opened in January and includes an activity based working space and ground floor retail, including a café.
The building has been designed to achieve a 5 Star Energy and 4 Star Water National Australian Built Environment Rating (NABER), as well as a 5 star Greenstar rating.
