The developers of the Pacific Bondi, Rebel Property Group's Allen Linz, Capit.el Group's Eduard Litver along with Gil Baron have splashed out $19.12 million for one of Bondi Beach's most iconic retail premises, the 1951 Bates Milk Bar.

The 124 Campbell Parade corner milk bar was known for its choc-malt milkshakes until its closure in 2001.

It sold at just over 3 percent given heavy competition from developer, Theo Onisforou who was the underbidder for the premises on the corner of Campbell Parade and Hall Street.

Developer Danny Avidan, who recently secured the Bronte RSL site, also attended the 45 minute auction which saw a $10 million opening bid.

The buyers plan to redevelop the property which is currently leased to retailers Platypus Shoes, Natalie Alamein, Mezi Retail and Gelatissimo.
