ABC Television studio building in Elsternwick up for sale

THE ABC has put its Elsternwick property on the market as productions move to its new Southbank studios.

The 6155sq m property, on the corner of Selwyn and Sinclair streets, comprises offices, storage facilities and some of the ABC’s television studios.

Six separate titles make up the property, which is zoned for mixed use and includes a two-level office, several warehouses and a two storey carpark.

The site is within 100m of Elsternwick station, trams and retail facilities along Glenhuntly Rd.

The property is being sold by Savills.

Savills state director Clinton Baxter said the property would attract a “great deal of attention”.

“This is one of those exceptional properties which very rarely hits the market,” he said.

“In this case favourable mixed use zoning, abundant surrounding amenity including retail, public transport, bay beaches and numerous prestigious schools, coupled with a levelled site with superb access from several street frontages.”

Mr Baxter said the buildings dated back to the 1950s and offered a wide range of potential uses in “what is one of the best and most highly credentialed development locations in Melbourne”.

The property will be sold following an expressions of interest process, which closes on December 6.

Savills would not reveal how much the property was expected to fetch.
