A ‘SWEET’ SURPRISE – 64 ROSE STREET CHIPPENDALE, NOW LEASING
The stand-alone 546 sqm building has recently undergone a complete refurbishment along with a facade upgrade, which has transformed it into an adaptive re-use ‘classic.’
“The building exudes character. The original cathedral towering roof structure is still in place, with raised mezzanine and two-storey glazing opening to the outer north-facing, sunny courtyard,” said leasing agent, Scot Robertson, of TGC Sydney Property. “The lower-ground has also been refurbished with new ceilings, feature downlights and new air conditioning. It is now one large room, which is ideal for training or as a boardroom space.
Available for lease from 1st November 2018 with a long-term 5-year initial lease term plus option available. The owners also intend to re-erect the original brass Scanlen’s signage.
The building is also set in a dynamic city fringe location, near to Victoria Park, Sydney University, Notre Dame University, Toby’s Coffee on City Rd (in the former Kennett Ladder Factory) and within an easy walk to Broadway and Central Railway Station.
“Chippendale is clearly the new startup and tech hub of Sydney. The CBD is now marching southwards around Central Station driven by the $2 billion Frasers development, the expansion of Notre Dame University and the purchase of 14-16 Buckland Street by UTS for use as an Innovation Centre for their students and startups,” stated Robertson.
Also, the redevelopment of Central Railway Airspace by the NSW State Government and the $955 million Central Station Upgrade (soon to commence) will fuel the drift of tenants and savvy investors wanting a ‘taste’ of Chippendale.
The character and heritage-nature of many Chippendale buildings is attractive to those looking for non-conventional office space.
The Scanlen’s Lolly Factory is expected to be highly sought after. For more information contact Scot Robertson of TGC Sydney Property:
