Tiny Southbank Site Earmarked For Major Tower

A SLIVER of Southbank land, about the same size as would accommodate a standard inner-city terrace house, has sold for $1.23 million because of its redevelopment potential.

The 168 square metre site at 11-13 Hancock Street sold at auction this week before 45 observers. Savills directors Nick Peden and Clinton Baxter represented the vendors who constructed a workshop on the site in the 1940s.
