Agent, bank sign on

LJ COLQUHOUN Dixon will move its commercial real estate agency to a $6 million building it will share with the ANZ Bank and other tenants.

Director Andrew Dixon confirmed yesterday the firm would move to the office block now being built on the corner of Kiewa and Wilson streets.

“We have been in the building next to the Albury Club for 40 years but we need more room,” he said.

The agency’s 18 staff and Mr Dixon’s fellow director, Chris Kloppenborg, hope to move in July or August.

They will occupy a 300 square metre suite with a shop front on Kiewa Street, facing the Albury Fire Station and city chambers.

The ANZ Bank, whose Dean Street branch was upgraded last year, will open more offices on the first floor, occupying 550 square metres.

A third tenant will be James Laycock’s Blueprint Planning consultancy.

Another 550 square metres was available to lease on the upper floor.

Zauner Construction is building the project for a local consortium.

The architect for the environmentally friendly building is Leffler Simes, a Sydney-based practice that designed the Gardens Medical Centre and the Northpoint tower block.

The site was formerly “Bethany”, the former family home of William Foo, a tea merchant, and his wife, Joan, which was demolished in 2011.

There will be 35 car spaces on the ground floor, accessed via a lane next to Anzac House.

- Swish Fashion, a women’s clothing chain based in Melbourne, will open a store in Dean Street next month.

LJ Colquhoun Dixon agent Scott Mann said the chain had taken a lease on the former Fletcher Jones store, which closed a year ago.
