Thirsty Camel buy inner-city HQ

Thirsty Camel has purchased levels 1 and 2 of 143 Cecil Street, South Melbourne.

Thirsty Camel will quit a rented headquarters at Hawthorn East for an office it will own at South Melbourne.

Benetas and Tupperware are amongst the occupiers at 785-789 Toorak Road.

The independent bottle shop chain, established 15 years by publicans, has paid $3.5 million for the two level self-contained space, part of a triple storey building at 143 Cecil Street, diagonally adjacent to South Melbourne Market.

The asset includes c510 square metres of A-grade area configured with a reception area, boardroom, meeting rooms, kitchen and male and female toilets.

It also features a 40 sqm courtyard on the second floor.

The title includes seven basement car parks too (story continues below).

Jones Real Estate’s Luke Peric brokered the deal.

Thirsty Camel will upsize from a 211 sqm tenancy at 785-789 Toorak Road – a former IOOF investment – occupied since 2019.

Before that, it was based at a warehouse converted office at 13-21 Vale St, North Melbourne – a strata co-owned since 2002 by the Victorian Primary Principals Association and Victorian Association of State Secondary Principals Inc.
