Stirling Street emerges as a viable business location

NORTHBRIDGE’S Stirling Street precinct is about to receive a timely facelift with a number of new developments planned or under way.

Work has begun on the first of three possible developments on Stirling Street, with Galvins Plumbing Plus starting soil works on the 1500sqm site of its new North-bridge base, on the corner of Stirling and Parry streets.

The company, which presently operates out of a premises on the corner of Pier and Short streets, will build a two-storey warehouse and office complex worth an estimated $700,000.

Galvins Plumbing Plus will take up almost 600sqm of warehouse and office space and plans to lease four office tenancies, ranging from 68sqm to 160sqm in size.

“With the increase in business around the city block we needed a bigger store,” Galvins managing director Greg Johnston said.

“We had been looking for a property for in excess of a year before we saw this one, which we grabbed as soon as the sign went up.”

The construction process will take between 10 and 12 months.

A short distance down the road, a mixed-use development is planned for the site presently occupied by Lukey Mufflers and Sydney Anderson Automotives.

The proposal, put to Vincent Town Council by landowners Sydney Anderson Automotives and R Anderson, involves the demolition of the existing vehicle sales premises and the construction of a three-storey building consisting of seven apartments and two offices.

Mal Atwell Leisure Group also has signalled interest in redeveloping two properties on the corner of Stirling and Aberdeen streets.

Provided substantial precommitment can be secured, the owners have indicated they would be prepared to demolish the existing buildings on site and construct a four-storey office development.

DTZ Australia leasing manager David Evangelisti, who is acting for the Mal Atwell Leisure Group, expected the precinct to continue to grow in popularity as more companies went in search of affordable alternatives to the central business district.

“Stirling Street has great potential, especially now that high-end CBD tenants have shown they are willing to move down there,” Mr Evangelisti said.
