FOR SALE: CBD building boasts ‘unusual’ bonus
AN opportunity to set up shop in the heart of Ipswich has arisen for corporates looking to be their own landlord.
A freehold property at 100 Brisbane St, Ipswich is available to buy, boasting two storeys, including three offices, an open work area, a kitchen, bathroom and reception area.
With a $590,000 asking price, the property hit the market on Friday and has already attracted interest from potential buyers.
Representing the property, realtor Cheryl Kermond said a range of buyers had been calling.
“We only just listed it so it’s still a bit early but we’ve had a bit of inquiry on it,” Ms Kermond said.
Ms Kermond said the property would suit office use.
“Previously it has been used as a professional office,” she said.
“And I would suggest its best use would be as a professional office, going forward.”
Before real estate company Assett Realty moved into the building in 2016, the space was used by Morris Blackburn Lawyers.
The legal firm moved into a larger space just two doors down.
Last month, Assett Realty moved to a new address in Ripley but Ms Kermond said the lease at 100 Brisbane St was not due to expire for another 12 months.
“The owners are happy to try and find either a tenant for lease or (someone) looking to be an owner-occupier. We’re looking at all options at this moment.”
Ms Kermond said the area for carparking made the property a unique one in the area.
“There is carparking attached to the site, which is obviously unusual for a lot of those properties in the Brisbane Street precinct,” she said.
Ms Kermond said interest in properties in the area were higher than usual.
“Inquiry rates at the moment on all our properties is actually quite high,” she said.
“We’ve found there has been a lot of interest from people wanting to be owner-occupier and, if we offer something to the market with good return, there’s also a lot of interest from buyers looking for stock in the Ipswich area as well.”
