“The property is returning $460,000 per annum and is considered a substantial rent reversion opportunity, with the current anchor tenant 7+ years in occupation paying a modest $288 sqm pa gross,” Mr Cowan said.

“We are finally seeing international interest in the Balmain Peninsular given major infrastructure upgrades including Sydney Metro West which will potentially feature a hard rail station in Rozelle linking the suburb to the CBD in three minutes and Parramatta in 23 minutes.”
