Sydney developer, Burcher Property Group, has secured a fully leased boutique office building in Sydney’s CBD for $31.3 million.
Made of two recently refurbished buildings, "the building's appeal is that it offers tenants space that is virtually no longer being developed and is therefore in short supply, thus allowing for strong rental returns," Vince Kernahan of Colliers International said.
The joint buildings were sold from Levanai Nominees (the trustee for the Matana Foundation for Young People founder) and architect Karen Loblay's family trust.
Colliers International's Vince Kernahan, Tom O'Neill and James Barber managed the expression of interest campaign.

Two neighbouring office buildings in Cremorne, just sitting on the fringe of Melbourne’s CBD, have been sold to a Sydney developer for $23 million. Market expectations for the combined sites were $20 million.
Combined the sites offer a 1,750sqm corner development site, with potential to develop an eight-level office building once a planning permit is obtained.
The sale highlights the demand for inner city commercial spaces and Cremorne is a perfect example of this; the neighbourhood has recently seen vacancy rates plummet.
"At a time when the residential market is showing slower signs of growth, developers are capitalising on high levels of activity in the city fringe office leasing market," said CBRE's Julian White who negotiated the sale of 116-124 Balmain Street with colleagues David Minty and Chao Zhang.
"Suburbs such as Cremorne, Collingwood, South Yarra and South Melbourne have been the principal focus points, with developers aspiring to provide modern office space that caters to evolving tenant needs.”
