The 39-storey 1 Elizabeth location will become Macquarie Group’s new, global headquarters with its employees, currently based across four offices in the Sydney CBD, coming together in one location for the first time in over 20 years.

660 Fifth Avenue, New York

Opening in 2024, our new Americas headquarters at 660 Fifth Avenue in New York embraces our commitment to growth, wellness and our people. The next-generation space is designed to support how Macquarie operates and promote global connectivity with our colleagues and clients around the world.

Our office in Milan

Located in the heart of Italy’s industrial and financial capital, our Milan office was designed with a focus on connectivity, sustainability and comfort. Powered by renewable energy, with recycled natural materials throughout, and a 'living wall' centerpiece, it has been created as a workplace where wellness and productivity can coexist.

Our office in Paris

Located on the Champs-Élysées with direct views of the Grand and Petit Palais, Macquarie’s office in Paris unites the old with the new – through state-of-the-art facilities and dedicated working zones, the office reflects our commitment to innovation and collaboration in one, dynamic location. 

Our office in Philadelphia

Our Leesman+ certified office in Philadelphia was designed with the primary goal of creating a human-centric environment that encourages a net-positive impact for our employees and guests. Developed as an adaptable kit-of-parts, the office design creates a series of workspace neighbourhoods, each with a diverse complement of focus rooms, phone booths and collaborative spaces.

Our office in Hong Kong

The award-winning redesign of our Hong Kong office began as a small-scale light renovation and evolved into a greater opportunity to improve how the space facilitated collaboration. The design fosters connection between our staff through a hospitality-driven experience. Curated destinations connect the office horizontally and vertically and activated corridors connect teams as informal destinations throughout the day.
