Hume Property Pty Ltd, formerly known as Bennelong Group, is offering its dual tower property in the heart of Sydney’s Chatswood for sale.

The decision, in part, was driven by the recent release of the new draft masterplan encouraging greater development in Chatswood and the sustained strong rental growth and increasing offshore purchaser interest in the precinct. 

Chatswood Central, at 1 – 5 Railway Street, is being offered to the market by way of expression of interest closing on March 30.

The listing agents are Jon Chomley and Steam Leung of Colliers International and Bevan Kenny and Chris Veitch of CI Australia.

The two, 12-storey towers are joined by the retail plaza, which provides a range of cafes and restaurants, a gymnasium and a childcare. Overall the buildings contain over 18,000 sqm of office and retail accommodation, with 100 basement carparks, and a strong mix of income from different sources.

The amenities in the Chatswood CBD have proven to be a strong drawcard for tenants, resulting in the property enjoying consistently high occupancy rates and a strong cash flow, according to a media release.

“Chatswood has been the beneficiary of strong rental growth over the last 3 years and this looks set to continue with the removal of suburban office space from the market for residential development. This in turn has reduced supply, particularly in B grade office space, and has bolstered rental growth,” said Jon Chomley.

The site adjoins the entry to the Chatswood Bus and Rail Interchange and is close to Westfield Chatswood and Chatswood Chase shopping centres. 

Hume has owned the property for over 10 years and has upgraded the plaza area, the lifts and the air-conditioning.

The site spans 3,806 sqm providing future development opportunities as it is underdeveloped under the current Masterplan for Chatswood, according to the listing agents.

“Whilst it will take time for any proposed redevelopment the building enjoys virtually full occupancy with strong effective rental growth and the improving property fundamentals of the Chatswood market,” said Bevan Kenny.

The site is currently leasehold from the Rail Corp, however, Hume has been in dialogue with RailCorp and there is a known pathway to either extend the ground lease term or freehold the property.
