Land said the Gothic Revival-style Assembly Hall offered rare self-contained offices in the coveted East End of Collins Street.

“Assembly Hall has retained its historic character over more than a century, an element that continues to draw tenants across the boutique office market,” said Land.

He said strong levels of enquiry were received from a number of different commercial operators, with legal, financial and real estate consultants, not-for-profit groups, and psychology and counselling services particularly prominent.

“The city’s East End offers a vibrant mix of its famous high-end shopping that has the street dotted with iconic global brands; high-profile modern and classic office buildings, and a range of food and beverage options, while Assembly Hall is also located a short distance from the heart of the Melbourne’s CBD.

“Tenants continue to look for spaces that offer attractive lifestyle elements and are well located, with Assembly Hall’s location on Collins Street between Swanston and Russell Streets easily accessible via a multitude of public transport options.”
