Reason for renting: We love our building (and so do our visitors), but have more room than we know what to do with!
Who would it suit?
An organisation that “wants something different” (Our building is unique – a combo between a New York loft apartment, a warehouse and art deco-influenced offices.)
An edgy or young architectural firm that specialises in renovations.
Why? We are located next to Handyman’s Trading Post and Down Memory Lane. All week-end there is traffic visiting those premises. They are people doing their own renovations who might need architectural services – or someone to fix things they can’t do themselves. See the photo of the week-end visitation.
Someone who is sick of paying high rents in Civic, Manuka or Kingston and wants to get in early before Fyshwick prices skyrocket.
Someone who likes solidly-built, double brick 1960s buildings with character.
If you like unique buildings, this one might be for you.
What do people think of our building?
They love it. Many people tell us they want to live in it.
The entry is impressive – Queensland maple doors from an old nunnery, and most of the doors throughout the building are from Old Parliament House.
How much space is there?
In total, approximately 600 sqm on two floors (plus 290 sqm parking area).
We are open to considering someone renting the whole building or part of it.
If you only want part, we’ll renovate the back of the building (which has a separate entrance) and use that, leaving you with some 350 sqm on two floors.
There are two separate toilet/bathrooms, three training rooms (large, medium and small) which could easily be converted into offices, two main breakout areas, two roller door entrances, two mezzanines (front and back) for equipment or storage, a separate 40 sqm office area, a reception area and stationery work area, wooden entry doors, polished floors as well as carpeted areas. There is Cat 6 cabling throughout the building…and 290 sqm designated parking associated with the building.
$250 + GST per sqm. Total depends on how much room you need. We’re open to potential expansion if you only need part of it now but want the option to grow.

Maps and area information
There's a lot more to see
Using overlays will allow you to see details such as school catchments, zoning and easements.
A block's planning zone defines how that land can be used and what can be built on it.
A right to use a part of land owned by another person for a specific purpose. The most common forms of easements are for services, such as water, electricity or sewerage.
The value of a block of land without any buildings, landscaping, paths, or fences. This is different to the block's market value. A block's unimproved value is used to calculate rates and land tax charges.
This represents the shape of the geographical land. Closely spaced contour lines represent a steep slope. Widely spaced lines represent a gentle slope.
