Sanremo expands into Global Coffee Hub Melbourne

Posted on 23rd May 2024

International company Sanremo Coffee Machines is expanding, and has taken up space on the CBD fringe of global coffee hotspot Melbourne.

Fitzroys’ Shane Mills negotiated the lease for77 Murphy Street in Richmond on behalf of a private local investor.

Mills negotiated the Sanremo deal at $386 per sqm net.

Positioned on the corner of Murphy Street and Vaughan Street, the property comprises an open office, warehouse and storage room, and features high ceilings and roller door access to Vaughan Street.

“Sanremo Coffee Machines’ Australian head office is in Sydney and the company has appropriately chosen a city renowned globally for its expansive, top-tier coffee scene for its next phase of expansion,” Mills said.

Sanremo will use the space as a Melbourne warehouse, as well as showroom for its clients.

“Sanremo were particularly keen on this central location as many of its clients are in this pocket of Melbourne,” Mills said.

The international company manufactures its coffee machines in the historic Italian city of Treviso, located a 30-minute drive from Venice in the country’s north. Machines have been then transported to the company’s Sydney warehouse to prepare for bench testing by its technicians.

Mills said the leasing campaign also attracted showroom and service retail operators.

“The campaign generated multiple offers, reflecting the strong demand for city fringe assets with multiple access points, including roller door access and high ceilings,” Mills said.
