Merricks Capital provides finance for Goldfields House.

Melbourne-based developer Goldfields has secured non-bank finance for a $300 million office tower it is building speculatively in South Yarra, striking a deal with Liberman-family backed investment house Merricks Capital and Japanese construction giant Kajima.

For Goldfields managing director Marco Gattino, sourcing finance through the shadow banking sector allowed the developer to play to its strength with the 24-level office tower at 627 Chapel Street.
