Character And Charm In Converted Woolloomooloo Warehouse


55 Riley Street, Woolloomooloo


800.00 m²


Behind its Art Deco facade, 55 Riley Street is undergoing a contemporary transformation turning the iconic address into a whole-building office block for lease on the city fringe.

Formerly home to the popular restaurant Riley Street Garage, the versatile space will soon be repurposed with concept plans by design studio The World is Round already in the pipeline.

Covering a 422sqm footprint the unique property will offer approximately 800sqm of internal floor area on the edge of Sydneys CBD with several must-have amenities nearby. In addition to parking at the Domain, staff can make the most of Cook + Phillip Park, Hyde Park, local hotels and bars. The location is also central to Kings Cross, Museum and St James train stations.

The owners vision is to highlight existing heritage features of the landmark buildings exterior and interiors while creating a modern multipurpose workspace over two levels. The result will be an ideal base for a company seeking a stand-alone office close to the CBD and Darlinghurst.

Built in the 1930s, the building features a striking brick facade, exposed internal brickwork, a pitched 6m ceiling with original steel beams, steel-framed windows and timber floorboards. Tenants ready to commit early have the opportunity to liaise with the owner on some design elements.

When completed by Q2 in 2023, the new look Riley St site could be offered to market with a turnkey fit-out featuring;

- 2 reception desks
- 80 work stations
- 2 meeting rooms
- An executive boardroom with space for 14 at the negotiating table
- Multiple staff break-out areas
- A separate communications room
- A large kitchen
- Male and female bathrooms
- 2 unisex bathrooms with shower facilities
- Bike racks

Note - proposed fitout can be redesigned by incoming tenant.

The building has dual access through the front of the building with DDA access and via Busby Lane to the rear.
