Evans says Toorak Road is arguably one of Melbourne's most coveted retail shopping strips.

"It really is a prestigious, blue-chip, location that doesn’t offer assets of this calibre to the market very often and as such it will undoubtedly attract the attention of astute retail strip investors,’’ Evans said.

Ludski said the strip retail market had prospered recently and continued to attract attention from small investors despite the headwinds facing some sectors of the market.

"The ongoing strength of the market is about the traditional popularity of this asset class for smaller investor, as well as the increase in demand for this type of property as investors drift away from a somewhat troubled residential sector.

"We are also seeing an uptick in interest from buyers financed off-shore and a more nuanced attitude to investment particularly from buyers looking longer term and particularly around any potential for development upside,’’ Mr Ludski said.
