A freehold building on Sydney’s Bondi Beach is set to go under the hammer on August 17, making it the third iconic site on the famous beachfront to go to the market in the last 12 months. 

The 134-138 Campbell Parade property earns a net income of more than $500,000 per annum.

Listing agent Miron Solomons of Colliers International, who is marketing the property along with and Matt Pontey, said they were expecting this to be the “biggest auction of the year – there will be some serious heavy hitters present”. 

Market chatter suggests price expectations of about $20 million.

This sale comes to market following two highly successful campaigns of neighbouring assets; Bates Milk Bar at 124 Campbell Parade in September 2016, and 128-132 Campbell Parade in May this year, with the latter breaking the Australian record for the highest price paid per metre for land, according to a media release from Colliers.

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

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

“It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity – three buildings in this location, on the Bondi beach front with uninterrupted views – coming to market within 12 months is unheard of. These assets are typically held by local families for 50-60 years each,” added Solomons.

There are also two retail tenancies currently within the building. The current ground floor tenants are Ben and Jerry’s and Ezymart in addition to eight residential units above, said Pontey, adding that they were expecting keen interest from developers and investors due to the flexible mixed use zoning.

“These are solid, diverse income streams with significant development potential that are attracting international interest.”

Solomons says the interest in the past two Bondi sites indicates there is still plenty of appetite for Sydney’s top end ‘trophy’ market.

“Any talk in the media of a downturn in the market has not jilted the momentum for the last two campaigns – we aren’t seeing any negative effects in the trophy, high-end of the market.”
