Gosford CBD Primed to become Regional City but quality Commercial Office Space needed

At present, with the exception of the new but limited high quality office space becoming available in the Bonython Tower development, there is no “A” Grade office space in the Gosford CBD.
As well, the Financial Services Building at 32 Mann Street being developed by StHilliers will have about 2,000 sqm of A Grade space available.
Agents Knight Frank in conjunction with LJ Hooker Commercial Central Coast have been engaged to market the space.
With no apparent demand for office space developers are showing no interest in investing.
However a demand does exist with enquiries going nowhere due to their fragmented nature.
This is the reason that Central Coast Council has included a substantial amount of commercial space in Option 2 of the proposed Regional Library building which is not getting traction from the Mayor and other Councillors.
CCBR is aware of a number of enquiries to one particular source over the last six months in particular, one of which was from a large international company that did not want to locate in the Sydney area. As NorthConnex project nears completion enquiries have increased this source said.
Chapman & Frazer Real Estate Managing Director Daniel Mason said that he has had enquiries over a long period for A Grade office space in Gosford mostly from companies looking to set up a satellite office and needing space for up to twelve staff. “We did have one large company looking to locate in Gosford but unfortunately there is no space,” he said.
Mr Mason said that Gosford is a preferred location due to it being on the rail line.
Tony Myers from Oliver Myers Real Estate said, “We are getting enquiry from people outside the area and larger companies who can see the benefits from the point of staffing as well as a more economical benefit of just ‘getting around’ are showing a lot of interest.”
“Nothing is too far away and it doesn’t take long to get from one place to another. Its an hour from Sydney and an hour from Newcastle and soon it will be an hour from Parramatta. We certainly don’t have crowded roads so that is an added bonus,” he said.
“With the State Government now placing its focus on the Gosford City Centre and announcing the appointment of a CEO to oversee the revitalisation of Gosford, I see a strong demand ahead of us,” said Mr Myers.
