Colliers presents The Welder, 20-26 Welles Street, Central Christchurch, to the market for sale. The Welder represents a stunning transformation and repurposing of older buildings into a modern wellbeing, retail and hospitality complex situated in a strong central city location.   The development originally comprised 6-character buildings dating as far back as circa 1880, containing a mix of local artisan businesses. In 2018 the development was extensively repurposed and strengthened to the current use, whilst maintaining the original character feel.   The Welder is located on a north-facing site along Welles Street with additional frontage to Quills Lane, forming part of the bustling South Town Precinct. Comprising 4 individual titles there is a combined land area of 2,157 sqm.   The buildings are now interconnecting and provide dual entrances past various retail and hospitality tenancies to a central courtyard and eatery area, providing strong interaction amongst occupiers.   Sound income is provided across multiple tenancies, anchored by O Studio and the extremely successful Japanese restaurant Bar Yoku. There are a total of 17 tenancies across the Welder of which circa 85% or 13 are occupied.   To the astute investor this is an opportunity to secure a diversified income stream, for a stunning and unique complex situated in a highly regarded central city location. Underpinning the investment is the large land holding and subsequent land value in isolation.    For sale by Deadline Private treaty closing 4pm, Thursday 9 May 2024 (unless sold prior).   *Boundary lines are indicative only.
