The home of Scouts Queensland has been announced for sale

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​A prominent parcel of land in the highly sought after suburb of Auchenflower, owned by Scouts Queensland for some 20 years, has been announced for sale


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​A prominent parcel of land in the highly sought after suburb of Auchenflower, owned by Scouts Queensland for some 20 years, has been announced for sale by JLL's Christian Sandstrom and Sam Byrne in a joint appointment with Savills' Tim Packman and Robert Dunne, as the demand for properties close to Brisbane CBD rises.

The property at 32 Dixon Street in Brisbane's Auchenflower occupies a prominent plot with two street frontages, just three kilometres from the heart of Brisbane CBD. The popular suburb embraces the true essence of inner city living, with its unique location and cosmopolitan feel.

The riverside neighbourhood provides an eclectic mix of eateries, cafes and boutiques as well as the major banks and professional services.

The site area of 5,256sqm features a two level office building currently occupied by Scouts Queensland at the front of the property, with onsite parking for up to 21 vehicles and a large urban greenery space at the rear.

"The inner city west is a highly sought after living and commercial destination, offering access to both residential and workplace opportunities," said JLL's National Director of Sales and Investments, Christian Sandstrom.

"This particular property offers a wide range of suitability to those in professional services, medical, allied health, education and community groups. As such, we anticipate strong interest from owner occupiers and value add investors, with secondary interest from developers," he said.

Mr Sandstrom said 32 Dixon Street will be sold with vacant possession.

Scouts Queensland General Manager, Trevor Ruthenberg said the organisation was looking to develop and grow their current offering in Queensland which is what lead to the decision to place 32 Dixon Street on the market.

"Relocating from 32 Dixon Street will allow Scouts Queensland to fund greater services for existing members as well as extend our reach and increase opportunities throughout Queensland for individuals to become involved in Scouts," Mr Ruthenberg said.

"It will also enable us to enhance our administration services to more efficiently provide support to members and the community."

Located close to the recently refurbished Toowong Village retail and office complex, the Wesley Hospital and a short 1.5 kilometres from the Park Road precinct, the area is serviced by a range of public transport options including the Auchenflower train station, Regatta ferry terminal and numerous bus services along Coronation Drive.
