Pacific National, the largest private rail freight company in Australia, has signed for two floors at 2 Blue Street, a ten-storey office building in North Sydney.

The building was formerly known as Blue & William and is owned by Keppel REIT, which purchased the asset in December 2021 while it was still under development. Pacific National will occupy about 3,350 sqm (36,059 sq ft) across the first and second floors of the Grade A office building, which achieved practical completion in April 2023. It was developed by Lendlease, who is also managing the building.
