4Cyte leases ex-nurse on call office for COVID testing centre

The former nurse on call office at 609-611 South Road, Bentleigh East, will be fit it out as a COVID testing centre.

4Cyte Pathology has leased a standalone building in Melbourne’s south east for a COVID testing centre.

The 12-month deal for 609-611 South Road, Bentleigh East, was struck by GrayJohnson’s Stephen Buchan, representing a private landlord.

The medical group will pay $65,000 plus GST and outgoings for the site at the north east corner of Valerie Street, previously occupied as a nurse on call hire office.

It has also indicated a renewal, the agent said, “as the ongoing progression and development of COVID outbreaks in Victoria is unknown”.

“We have had enquiries from other pathology service providers seeking relatively short-term occupancy opportunities for strategically located buildings,” the broker added.

The Bentleigh East property, a brown brick, 228 square metre structure, surrounded by 33 car parks, has been vacant for a few years (story continues below).

4Cyte intends to establish a testing centre there immediately.

“It is adjacent to an active retail and services zone where high profile occupancies include Wooloworths, Foodworks, Harvey Norman, Holmesglen TAFE and a Chemist Warehouse outlet,” the agent added.

The suburb is about 14 kilometres from the city.

Four months ago 4Cyte Pathology leased a former medical clinic in Dandenong South – more than 20 kms south east of Bentleigh East – three days after it hit the market.
