The Location

Emerging in 2018, Cremorne and Richmond have become known as the ‘Silicon Valley’ of Melbourne, having attracted landmark tenants including Uber, Seek, Car sales, MYOB, Val Morgan, REA Group. As at H2 2019, approximately 35% of tenants in Melbourne’s Inner East (Cremorne, Richmond, Collingwood, Abbotsford) operated in technical, information media or telecommunications services.

The Developer has successfully purchased under contract, 8 separate titles for the approved development scheme. Consolidations of this size are not common within Cremorne, due to the difficulty in aligning multiple smaller land holdings. The subject sites permit approved scheme for an eight storey commercial development far exceeds this preferred height limit and is widely considered an exceptional result in the local market.

It is likely that the subject property will remain one of the few developments within Cremorne offering larger scale floorplates over 1,000m2.
