Case Study Industrial: 23-27 Bourke Road, Alexandria


Our experts invested in our relationship with our key private client to deliver enduring value.



Our Colliers Sydney South experts have worked closely with our private client for the recent sale at 23-27 Bourke Road, Alexandria. We’ve transacted the property three times off market in the past 36 months, our Real Estate Management Services experts manage the estate, and we have leased every unit in the premises multiple times. We were recently tasked with the request to transact the premises, which is a sizable parcel of land at 8,089sqm with a DA approval for 15,000sqm.

Our expert Michael Crombie, Director-in-Charge of our Sydney South team, put together a comprehensive strategy designed to deliver a fantastic result for our client.


Located on a prominent corner block on Bourke & Bowden Streets in Alexandria, we put together an off market strategy that would maximise the value of the property and achieve an incredible result. Utilising our best-in-class data and known relationships we sought to position the offering as the most dynamic commercial pre lease site within the South Sydney market. The strategy encompassed off-market negotiations to ensure the buyer understood the opportunity and we maximised the price.


We were successful in transacting the property for $52,500,000 to a private client . We also were successful in our appointment for the commercial pre-lease opportunity with our Office Leasing experts for the 15,000sqm commercial development.

Our private client was thrilled with the result and commented, ‘Michael, you always deliver above expectations, we have enjoyed your trust, great ideas and delivery on completing all facets of property.

At Colliers, we maximise the potential of property to accelerate the success of our clients and our people. To learn more about this transaction, contact Michael Crombie.
