Former Brothel Site for Sale

Former Brothel Site for Sale

The site of one of only two licensed brothels in Cairns with potential for redevelopment (STCA) is being offered for sale through Ray White Commercial Cairns.

The freehold building on an approximately 2,095 sqm land area at 7 Owen Close, Portsmith, is being marketed via Expressions of Interest by Scott Green of Ray White Commercial Cairns.

“This property is 1.5km from the Cairns CBD in the centre of a mixed use precinct that includes industrial, retail shopping centres, bulky goods and the Cairns Port,” Scott Green said.

“The existing large, residential style building of approximately 430 sqm has previously been utilised as a brothel and can continue trading within this use under the Cairns Town Plan.

“The current building accommodates a reception, office, eight rooms (five being bedrooms), store room, laundry and double garage. The property also has an external concrete driveway, 10 car parking spaces, landscaping and high metal security fencing.”

Scott Green said the building is situated on a level allotment with the balance of approximately 50 per cent of the land ready for future development (STCA).

“Town planning advice suggests there is good planning grounds to provide support for a material change of use for a range of industrial uses,” he said.

“The site is close to landmarks including Queensland Transport, Bunning Warehouse, Homemakers Centre, Cairns Regional Council Chambers and the Cairns Port.

“There is easy access to the major transport hubs of Cairns Port, Queensland Rail and southern access to the Bruce Highway.”

Expressions of Interest close at 4pm on Thursday, July 13, 2017.
