396 George Street, which sits at the intersection of King Street, has been listed for sale in Sydney’s premium retail precinct.

The expression of interest campaign will be handled by Knight Frank together with JLL.

More than $30 million is tipped.

Knight Frank’s Dominic Ong, head of Asian Markets, suggests 396 George Street will attract interest from local and offshore investors.

396 George Street is currently tenanted by Telstra, providing a net passing income of approximately $1.21 million per annum until February 2020, with a five-year option.

He says the prized corner offers buyers an opportunity to secure a strong commercial property investment with potential rental upside given the repositioning of George Street Pedestrian Mall.

An extensive $15 million renovation was undertaken in 2014/2015 which saw the property integrated into the adjoining building.

The Sydney Metro Light Rail will be directly in front of the building.

“396 George Street is situated in what is considered Sydney’s equivalent to New York’s Fifth Avenue, Singapore’s Orchard Road, Hong Kong’s Causeway Bay, London’s Regent Street, and Paris’ Champs Elysees,” said Mr Ong.

Offers for 396 George Street July 19.

The two storey facade is in the Victorian Exotic style, the sole surviving example of the work of a significant outspoken dilettante and amateur architect and artist Harold Brees.

The building was constructed in the 1860s.

Brees himself described the style of the building as being "Domestic Antique - partaking of the Italian but without any Gothic." 

Just next door Investa has announced Woolworths as its newest tenant in The Sydney Arcade at 400 George Street.

Comino recently acquired the Soul Pattinson Chemist at Pitt Street Mall for $100 million and also owns the flagship Apple store across the road and the Louis Vuitton store diagonally opposite.
