Buckley’s Bar at Opera Quays on the Sydney Harbour waterfront promenade is set for public auction, 25 November through Cushman & Wakefield.

The property, 1A Macquarie Street, East Circular Quay sits between the Sydney Opera House and Circular Quay Ferry terminal and is 408 sqm across three levels.

The property has a net annual rental income of $809,738 with a 5 year lease in place which began May 2014 and has the option to extend for a further 4 years and 9 months.

Anthony Bray, Cushman & Wakefield director, sales & investments, said despite yield compression in the NSW retail property market, we have seen flagship retail assets of this nature performing strongly.

"The recent sale of the former Bates Milk bar site on Campbell Parade on Bondi Beach was sold at a 3.14 percent yield, and demonstrated the fierce competition for investment in Sydney’s prime retail and tourist precincts," he said.

"Buckley’s Bar is strategically located with a large outdoor seating component with direct water views, with these features making this retail strip one of the most tightly held precincts in the Sydney CBD.

“We are expecting interest in Buckley’s Bar will be significant, underpinned by limited supply of premium retail investment opportunities in the inner city coupled with income security for a potential purchaser over the medium to long term."
