Manly bank in The Corso sells for more than $20 million


The Westpac bank branch in Manly’s The Corso has sold for more than $20 million.

A Sydney-based investor has paid $20,200,000 for the Westpac bank branch in The Corso in Manly.

The bank isn’t going anywhere as it has a lease until 2024 as well as four options each for five years. So it is possible the new owner has a blue-chip tenant until the year 2044.

Patrick Kelleher, of Pine Property, said the sale was a good result and there was the potential to upsize and unlock some development potential on the site.

“The tenant is not guaranteed for 40 years but you can’t get a better tenant than a big bank, it is a completely safe investment,” he said.

The freehold two-storey property is on 664sqm of land and has a 15m height limit. The net income for the site is approximately $994,380. It was billed as a “once in a generation opportunity.”
