The largest vacant industrial building currently available for lease on the North Shore is offering about 9719sq m of warehouse, office and showroom accommodation.

Situated at 10-12 Rothwell Ave, Albany, the property is on a substantial 1.4309ha corner site with 131 car parks and has dual access also from Unity Drive.

Matt Mimmack, of Bayleys North Shore Commercial and Jimmy O’Brien, Colliers International have a joint sole agency to market the property for lease by negotiation.

“It’s well known that there is an acute shortage of industrial buildings available for lease on the North Shore, particularly larger premises, so this is a big opportunity for substantial businesses to secure a modern and well maintained building in one of the Shore’s best industrial locations,” says Mimmack. “There is the opportunity to occupy this property in its entirety or the building could be split in two for the right tenants.

“The premises have around 5900sq m of rear warehousing which has been constructed in two similar sized components, with a central full height concrete block wall, which enables the property to be easily divided.”

Each warehouse provides a minimum stud height of approximately 6.5m to the portal knee, rising to 7.5m at the apex of the roofline. Each has two roller doors or loading docks which are protected from the elements via cantilevered canopies.

“Overall, the warehousing provides functional, good quality industrial accommodation with multiple access points on the southern and northern sides of the building,” says Jimmy O’Brien. “There are also two levels of well appointed, air-conditioned office and showroom accommodation at the front of the warehousing and either side of an attractive entranceway to the building.

“This comprises a combination of showroom, separately partitioned and open plan offices. They have a spacious feel due to their stud height and wide hallways that provide good natural light which is further enhanced by glazed partitions. The offices are presented to a good standard on a carpeted, air conditioned, partitioned and suspended ceiling basis.”

The ground floor includes service areas, showrooms and reception, along with amenities including male and female bathrooms and a staff-room/kitchen. An area previously allocated for a gymnasium has associated showering facilities.

O’Brien says the building is located on an attractively landscaped site with a number of large palm trees surrounding its entrance way and abundant staff and client car parking. It is within the well-established North Industrial Estate which is home to many well-known companies including Sealegs International, FujiFilms and Electrix.

Rothwell Ave is a principal thoroughfare linking William Pickering Drive through to Albany Highway. State Highway 1 is easily accessed via the Greville Rd interchange to the north or Constellation Drive/Upper Harbour Highway interchange to the south.
