POINT OF INTEREST:
Bendigo’s real estate is generational and tightly held, which makes this flagship property on Howard Place one of the rarest listings on the market this year. These iconic two-level freehold buildings sit on the prominent corner overlooking the Conservatory Gardens and the magnificent 60 acre Rosalind Park. The ground floor is leased to FOS Kitchen & Bar, the popular restaurant and bar, with the first floor previously occupied for 17 years as Bendigo's best nightclub — and now completely vacant for its next opportunity. Looking at it in numbers, the building is 700 sqm* and the land totals 544.81 sqm*, with 165 sqm* of it allocated to the rear of the property. Plenty of opportunity for development and re-positioning upgrades, the first floor is completely fit-out for functions and events with a cast-iron balcony, heritage façade, and superb natural light. It lends itself easily to a range of potential commercial and residential ventures, such as studio apartments, a retail showroom, a fitness studio, commercial office or a gallery. The City of Greater Bendigo closed Howard Place to traffic 25 years ago to allow pedestrian access and hospitality to flourish, but there’s also ample street parking around the wide streets. Foot traffic has always been high here, being surrounded by major tourist attractions including the Bendigo Art Gallery, the Golden Dragon Museum, Historic Talking Tram tours, and the new Vintage and Classic Motor Bike Museum. You’re practically located on Midland Highway, the main arterial taking you into Melbourne’s centre in under two hours. And as for public transport, the bus routes are within arm’s reach and can take you straight to Bendigo railway station, getting you directly into Melbourne on one line.
