The Board believes that the Property "presents a prime investment opportunity and has potential to be a stable source of rental income for the Group."

Colliers International's website said: "The property currently offers multiple income streams from 28 tenants, returning $4,658,044 plus GST in net annual rent.

"The comparatively short weighted average lease term provides an opportunity to reposition the property and add value through refurbishment or repositioning."
