West Melbourne has become a thriving hub for investors and businesses seeking prime city fringe warehouses with unlimited potential. The demand for these versatile spaces is skyrocketing as entrepreneurs recognise the value of establishing a presence in this vibrant and strategically located area.

With its close proximity to the CBD, excellent transportation links, and a thriving commercial landscape, West Melbourne offers a unique opportunity for companies looking to capitalise on the city's growth. These warehouses, known for their expansive layouts and adaptable configurations, provide the ideal canvas for a wide range of industries, including logistics, e-commerce, creative studios, and more.

An exceptional opportunity to acquire a strategic landholding with unlimited potential is set to hit the market this week at 154-160 Stanley Street, West Melbourne, with a price guide of $3.7 million plus.

For sale through Cushman & Wakefield’s Alexander Leggo, Anthony Kirwan and Leon Ma, on behalf of an owner occupier, this property holds immense potential for various ventures.

With a major strategic landholding of 496 sqm*, the expansive clear-span, saw-tooth warehouse features high ceilings, mezzanine level storage, offices, bathroom/kitchen amenities, and a large cool room facility.

Offered with a flexible lease, this property is situated within a favourable Special-Use Zone (SUZ), this property permits a multitude of uses, including office, residential, student accommodation, serviced apartments, co-living, office, and retail (STCA).

Its location, just 100m* from Spencer Street, West Melbourne's recently announced central high street, positions it perfectly to benefit from the forthcoming direct tram line into the Melbourne CBD, as well as the new retail amenities, including shops, cafes, and hospitality venues.

Conveniently accessible, the property is also a mere 400m* from the Melbourne CBD, Flagstaff Gardens and Train Station, and enjoys close proximity to the Dynon Road access to the Tullamarine Freeway. It is surrounded by a growing number of successful projects by leading developers, contributing to the expansion of commercial, residential, and student accommodation spaces within the CBD.

Alexander Leggo, Cushman & Wakefield’s Executive Investment Sales, Victoria said the strategic location of this landholding makes it an ideal investment opportunity, set to benefit from significant government infrastructure investment, including the Spencer Street transformation project, Queen Victoria Market revamp, Melbourne Metro Tunnel Project, and the ongoing growth of the Biomedical and University Precinct.

“Investors and occupiers alike are keeping a keen eye on this market, as the potential for long-term growth and success is unparalleled” he said.
