337-351 Barkly Street, FOOTSCRAY VIC 3011


Located in Footscray and Melbourne’s inner west approximately 6km to the CBD, this unique historic building creates an excellent opportunity for a creative mind to renovate and develop the interior space to capitalise on the extensive double street frontage.

This corner landmark property formerly known as “Green’s Building” is a two storey brick clad building with a distinctive domed balcony at the splayed corner entry with a clock set in a scrolled timber fascia. Originally built in 1913-14 and modified in the 1920’s. It is set on a large 1,290m2 (approx.) block with expansive street frontage to Geelong Road on one side and Barkly Street on the other with a service lane at the rear. Currently leased out in sections with two cornerstone tenants (Pandu’s Indo-Chinese restaurant with and upstairs function room, and a branch display for a headstone monument business) and another six areas leased or available to be leased on the ground floor area. The owners previously proposed and received planning approval to divide the large first floor area into approx. 17 large rooms plus service rooms for a backpack style short time accommodation facility.
