Carlton church offered after a century

The property neighbours a site earmarked for a 14-level apartment building.

Postscript: this site sold to a residential developer for $4.2 million.

Churches of Christ is offering a small Carlton cathedral after over a century.

The not-for-profit can expect more than $4 million for the property, 148-150 Queensberry Street.

On a 362 square metre Mixed Use zoned site, it neighbours a parcel owned by Projex Properties and permitted for Platanus, a 14-level residential project with 61 dwellings.

It is opposite Lechte Corporation’s The Eminence – a 15-storey short and long-stay apartment complex which replaced the Communication Workers Union of Australia headquarters (story continues below).

Savills’ Clinton Baxter, Jesse Radisich and Mark Stafford are representing the vendor, which occupies the 248 sqm building as a Chinese Church of Christ.

The property is c250 metres north of the CBD and west of Carlton’s Lygon St retail strip.

It is also near two proposed Scape apartment buildings – once earmarked to replace Oxfam’s Leicester St headquarters and another, proposed for an ex-7-Eleven at the T-intersection of Victoria and Drummond streets.

Churches of Christ has occupied the Carlton building for over a century.
