Media Arts Lawyers lists former North Melbourne HQ

The North Melbourne building occupies a 111 square metre site.

The North Melbourne terrace owned and until recently occupied by Media Arts Lawyers is for private sale asking $1.4 million.

Daniel Johns, Gotye, Kylie Minogue, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Tame Impala and Vance Joy are some of the artists the firm has acted for.

Social media personalities including chef Matt Preston and Australian Idol contestant turned comedian, Em Rusciano, are other clients.

The legal group represents high-profile businesses, like Cricket Australia and Onelove Music Group, too.

Over three storeys, 633 Queensberry Street contains 190 square metres of lettable area with a high-quality fit-out.

The 111 sqm plot has a car park off a rear laneway.

CBRE’s Dylan Kilner, David Minty and Chao Zhang say there is “enormous scope” for developers to add levels.

Owner occupiers and investors are also on the agents’ radar.

The building is about 400 metres from the proposed Arden train station, part of the $11 billion Metro Tunnel project which will connect North Melbourne to South Yarra via Parkville and the city.

Errol Street shops, including cafes Auction Rooms and Roasting Warehouse are also withing walking distance, the agents said.

Media Arts Lawyers, which is directed by David Vodicka, is relocating elsewhere in the pocket, about two kilometres from the north west tip of Melbourne’s CBD.

In 2018, Victorian Automotive Chamber of Commerce spent $8.8m on the Melbourne City Garage site at 644-658 Victoria Street, North Melbourne – with intentions to replace the 1340 sqm parcel with a four-level headquarters.

Also two years ago ESRI Australia paid $5.9m for the ex-Goldsmiths Lawyers office at 613 King Street, West Melbourne, employing Schiavello to undertake a high-quality refurbishment which took four months and is estimated to have cost about $2m, before moving in.

A century old, and originally comprising six Victorian era homes – this office has previously been the subject of a planning application for a six-storey building with 17 dwellings.
