Queensland might have a smorgasbord of commercial properties on the market, but it’s a Gold Coast Sizzler that has investors’ stomachs rumbling.

A prime commercial site fronting the Gold Coast Highway at Mermaid Beach was among Queensland’s top five most viewed properties over the past week, with its tenants including an iconic Sizzler restaurant and KFC.

Agents say calls have been coming in thick and fast for the 2506 Gold Coast Highway property, which is being marketed as the ‘best mixed-use redevelopment site on the Gold Coast’.

Sizzler and KFC are long-term tenants on the 6525 sqm site which also hosts a medical centre, pharmacy, Optus tower and pool hall.

The listing comes after the Sizzler space and two neighbouring properties were advertised for least last month.

Here are the other properties up in lights across the Sunshine State.
