Wodonga's Cafe Grove building is hitting the market in a far more buoyant environment than its demise as one of the city's well known eateries.
The High Street property jointly owned by the Crown and Wodonga Council will be auctioned on November 19 by agents, L.J. Colquhoun Dixon.
The auction date will be close to the two-year anniversary of the business closing due in part to a downturn in trade from roadworks at the southern end of High Street.
"The market is still red hot," L.J. Colquhoun Dixon director Andrew Dixon said.
"There will be a lot of interest from developers, owner occupiers, investors.
"It is a significant building in Wodonga being the former council chambers."
Wodonga Council owned the cafe part of the site with the balance managed by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning on behalf of the Crown.
The sale of 198A High Street includes Crown land and also freehold land.
