Nine Yards will occupy a 178sqm space within a heritage-fronted building that in a past life was used as horse stables, and is now part of the $30 million multi-level project by Piccolo.

On an island site at 228-230 Dorcas Street and 10 Charles Street, Piccolo House will be a rare boutique development that features luxury residential apartments, premium office and high quality hospitality components.

Fitzroys agents James Lockwood andStephen Land leased the ground floor retail component to Nine Yards at $115,000 per annum net plus outgoings and GST, on a secure 5+5+5+5-year deal, following an extensive Expressions of Interest campaign.

Nine Yards will be Rowley and Vero’s ninth café and will be opening soon. The venue will have room for about 130 diners and aim to create a local breakfast and lunch experience.

Head chef of Plain Sailing, Lydia Hean, has bought in as an equity partner and will run the kitchen, serving some classics with diverse influences and some native Australian ingredients. Plain Sailing is also located within a Piccolo development, Elwood House.

On the first floor, Land and Lockwood have leased the 152sqm space to Bruni Dunn Advertising on a 3+3+3-year lease at $68,000 per annum net plus outgoings and GST.

Malvern Home to Melbourne’s Newest Neighbourhood Wine Bar
Melbourne’s famed nightlife and hospitality culture continues stretching through to the inner south-eastern suburbs.

Fitzroys Associate Director, Chris James negotiated the lease of the 2-level Victorian heritage building opposite Malvern station, at 35 Station Street, to Essie Wine Bar.

The 4-year deal was struck at around $61,000 per annum net.

Essie is the creation of Tasmanian-born Angus Brettingham-Moore, who has been involved with the team behind renowned local staples Toorak Cellars in Armadale and Milton Wine Shop on Malvern Road, as well as The Alps in Prahran and The Hills in Surrey Hills.

Consistent with sister venues, Essie will offer a wide selection of old and new world wines, with an emphasis on those that capture the seasonal and environmental elements of their origins, as well as a warm aesthetic featuring low lighting and pine floors.

“Neighbourhood wine bars are a growing feature of Melbourne’s inner suburbs,” James said.

“A growing foodie and wine culture appreciation is spreading out from the city and is creating demand for new nightlife offerings.

“There has been a growing appetite across Melbourne for the option of a for more considered and refined ambience and experiential wine offering closer to home, that people can easily go out to any night of the week.”
