Former Avanti Cakes, Perth premises listed for sale

The former home of one of Perth’s most recognised cake shops, Avanti Cakes, has been listed for sale.

It is almost 3,000 square metres of prime real estate on Beaufort Street, Inglewood.  

After 35 years of ownership, the Lembo family has appointed CBRE to market for sale the four adjoining properties.

They are 867 Beaufort Street (1,183 square metres); 871 Beaufort Street (604 square metres); 875 Beaufort Street (594 square metres) and 875 Beaufort Street (599 square metres). 

The combined 2,980 square metre site was home to Avanti Cakes – one of Perth’s top wedding cake suppliers – between 1983 to 2005.

It was also the former Inglewood Police Station buildings. 

The property has recently received development approval for a five-storey mixed use project comprising restaurant and retail shops, medical consulting rooms in the retained heritage police quarters, 57 residential apartments and 78 car parking bays.

It is located opposite the mooted Inglewood Woolworths. 

CBRE’s Michael Milne and Ben Younger have been appointed to market the site for sale via a public offers to purchase process closing July 4.  

Milne said the properties represented an attractive development opportunity in one of Perth’s most desirable inner metropolitan locations.  

“Many people will recognise this high-profile site by the Avanti Cakes mural, which has decorated its exterior since the ‘80s, together with the adjoining Inglewood Police Station buildings," he said. 

"Its favourable street profile and existing development approval will underpin strong buyer interest from retail groups and mixed-use developers."
