The sale was brokered by Colliers International Tom O’Neill and Vince Kernahan in conjunction with Henderson and Horning’s William Mulvihill and Bill Rees.

“The campaign saw very strong interest from local and offshore high net worth investors and funds who recognise the exceptional growth prospects for the property being surrounded by new projects which are adding valuable amenity. These include the proposed Sydney Metro Stations and the towers that will sit above them -the Pitt Street North office tower and the Pitt St South “build to rent” tower.” said Tom O’Neill, Manager, Investment Services at Colliers International who introduced the buyer.

“The Club has repositioned the property and rebranded the club reopening the upstairs bar and restaurant after having just undertaken complete refurbishment of the building and securing Wold Gym to occupy 1600sqm” said will Mulvihill who introduced World Gym.
