Screen Australia, the federal government agency that provides support for films, television shows and digital media, has taken up a 10-year lease with a five-year option at 45 Jones Street, Ultimo (pictured). The leasing agents, Jones Lang LaSalle’s Andrew Westaway and Savills Australia’s Nick Lau, said Screen Australia had consolidated its smaller offices at 150 William Street, Woolloomooloo, to the larger, 1999-square-metre Ultimo office. The lease was signed at $480 a square metre a year.
