Partner feature: The GPT Group and Jones Lang LaSalle
The iconic Riverside Centre building in Brisbane hosts the first Buffed franchisee to be opened in Australia and it was made possible through relationships with the GPT Group and Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL). This has developed quickly into a relationship based on a shared vision to create businesses that drive shared value. Due to the success of this launch we are now exploring further opportunities to launch Buffed franchises in other buildings as a unique premium service to tenants.
