Savills secure CBD basement lease for Indigenous Australian art gallery

A Brisbane CBD basement has become the new home for a First Nations owned and operated art gallery.

The Henderson Gallery have taken up occupancy in the basement of 300 Adelaide Street, leasing the 489 sqm space through Savills.

The lease was negotiated by Executive of Savills Commercial Leasing, Daniel Paxton, on a five year term plus options.

“The space is traditionally a tricky tenancy to lease, however the refurbishment by LSH Property enabled us to gain traction and led to three serious parties interested in the space,” Mr Paxton said.

The Henderson Gallery is owned by Robert Henderson, Wiradjuri, focusing on First Nations art experiences for domestic and international visitors.  

The Henderson Gallery offers "exhibitions, First Nations influenced menus in Birrang Café, wine bar, live performances and more."

Mr Paxton said the Gallery have also leased a 159 sqm suite within the building to house their not-for-profit foundation, The Wayne Weaver Foundation.  

The Henderson Gallery opened in their new location on February 23 2019.
