APH Holding secures government anchor tenant for Wellington Health One


APH Holding has secured a major government anchor tenant for Stage One of its $320 million Wellington Health masterplan (known as Wellington Health One) to be built in Melbourne’s Eastern Suburbs, located at 12-22 Wellington Road, Box Hill.

The tenant, Eastern Health, is a government organisation, one of Melbourne’s largest metropolitan public health services. Eastern Health provides a range of emergency, surgical, medical and general healthcare services, including maternity, palliative care, mental health, drug and alcohol, residential care, community health and state-wide specialist services to people and communities that are diverse in culture, age, socio-economic status, population and healthcare needs.

One of the major Eastern Health sites is Box Hill Hospital which neighbours the Wellington Health site. Eastern Health is looking to increase Box Hill Hospital’s footprint in order to continue to grow and service the eastern Melbourne catchment, a major growth corridor. Eastern Health works closely with nearby universities Monash, Deakin and La Trobe, on important health research and development.

The APH Holding team are especially excited by Eastern Health coming on board as the major anchor tenant of Wellington Health One before officially launching the Expressions of Interest (EOI) Campaign for leasing, showing high demand for the project. APH Holding is also in final negotiations with a few private healthcare and day surgery operators showing the strong demand for medical facilities and the growth of this sector in the area. Market has responded with strong interest in particular to our high quality amenities which includes a sky lounge and club which will be exclusively made available to the Wellington Health medical professionals.

Wellington Health One received a permit in early August 2021 with unanimous votes from the City of Whitehorse Council reflecting the added value the project is bringing to the Box Hill medical and education precinct.

With the planning and construction of the Suburban Rail Loop and the Box Hill station, the medical demand in and around Box Hill will be stronger than ever. It is APH Holding’s vision to provide these services for the growing population of the South-Eastern Corridor of Melbourne.
