Sydney buyers beats Asian interest to secure St Kilda Road office

An undisclosed wealthy Sydney family has bought a low-rise office building on Melbourne's St Kilda Road for $14 million.

The seven storey glass and concrete office building is at 1 Bowen Crescent near the Domain Road interchange.

It was sold on a yield of 4% by the philanthropist and tech entrepreneur Malcolm Freake, who bought it in 2002.

It was built by trucking magnate Lindsay Fox as Linfox company offices.

It sold fully leased to insurance services company Innovation Group with the current lease term ending in May next year.

The underbidder was an Asian buyer.

The sale illustrated the "gravitational pull of Melbourne for interstate buyers" who see better value in markets like St Kilda Road than in markets like Sydney, the CBRE selling agent said.
