A bumper 1,000-plus car bays are up for grabs in Melbourne as part of an unprecedented property portfolio sale by Singapore's Lim family.

Colliers International’s Matt Stagg, Daniel Wolman, Oliver Hay and Trent Hobart have been appointed to sell two major commercial car parks at 380-406 Queen Street (corner A’Beckett Street), Melbourne and 16-32 Leicester Street, Carlton.

380 Queen Street is expected to attract interest in excess of $70 million, while 16-32 Leicester Street is estimated to sell for around $40 million.

“It is the biggest car park portfolio to be offered for sale in the Melbourne CBD for more than 10 years,” Mr Stagg said.

“On its own, this portfolio is substantial and unique, but current market conditions elevate the offering to an unprecedented level.” 

380 Queen Street is a large, 3,218sqm site that is home to a six-level commercial car park comprising 556 bays, constructed in 1987.

Situated in a high profile location on the corner of Queen Street and A’Beckett Street, it also includes a 1,917sqm ground floor showroom and office.

16-32 Leicester Street is a 2,040sqm site comprising a six-level commercial car park with 454 bays, on the border of the Melbourne CBD.

“The sale of the two properties comes at a time when the number of purpose-built commercial car parks throughout the Melbourne CBD and city fringe is rapidly reducing,” Mr Stagg said.

The car parks may be be purchased as a portfolio.

 The portfolio is for sale by international expressions of interest closing Thursday 8 October, 2015 at 3:00pm.

The Lim family paid $9 million for the larger six level car park on the corner of Queen and A'Beckett Streets and $4.5 million for the Carlton car park at 16-32 Leicester Street in the early 1990s.

The two car parks failed to sell 1999 when they were listed with hopes above $15 million.

Cox Architects have prepared a development scheme for a 71-storey residential tower with 850 apartments on the Queen Street site and 17-storey student housing block with 250 apartments on the Carlton site, but without any development approvals.
