Former Hobart Harris Scarfe store in major leasing opportunity
The most exciting, potential-packed commercial leasing opportunity in Hobart right now would have to be the FitzGerald’s Building in Collins Street.
This large site has been fully refurbished to present an A-grade, mixed use building in the heart of the CBD.
An opportunity exists for office, retail and medical tenants for the lease of the ground and first floors, which until recently housed the Harris Scarfe department store.
Historically, Collins Street was home to Tasmanian business FitzGerald’s wholesale business dating back to the mid 1880s.
With large, open floor plates of 1493sqm on the ground floor and 1734sqm on Level 1, the space can accommodate a number of large format uses up to a total of 3227sqm or be split into smaller areas to suit.
Silverleaf state manager Greg Radin says this property presents “an exciting opportunity for us to introduce some new retailers” to the people of Hobart reinforcing the reputation of The Cat & Fiddle Arcade as Tasmania’s premier shopping destination.
“We’re currently in discussions with a number of national and international retail brands for the space and hope to announce some exciting news shortly.
“The flexibility of this site is paramount, with opportunities not only for retail but also for office tenants seeking arguably the best presented A-grade space in the city, with premium quality finishes and fantastic natural light, all of which are key to providing a quality workplace environment to attract and retain the best available staff.”
With frontage to Collins Street at ground level, internally into the Cat & Fiddle Arcade and to Level 1 via a modern dual lift lobby, any number of potential tenant uses can be satisfied.
The property is surrounded by high profile retail tenants including H&M, Target and JB Hi-Fi.
Levels 2 and 3 are fully leased to professional office and medical tenants.
The central CBD location offers multiple public carparking options.
