A TENANT for the first floor of the infamous Frankston Yacht Club building is being sought.
The Yacht Club building’s history is filled with turmoil. Frankston ratepayers have coughed up more than $11 million on the project. It has sat empty for large periods of time since construction was completed in 2016.
Fit-out works will be undertaken on the first floor of the building to help find a tenant. A tenant has been found for the ground floor with Olivers Corner cafe set to open soon.
Frankston Council is hoping to find a hospitality business to occupy the space. Frankston mayor Nathan Conroy said that “it’s time to kick it up a notch with a destination dining offering for the first floor to take the Frankston Yacht Club and the Frankston dining scene to the next level.”
“With a significant pipeline of investment coming on stream in Frankston, the city is perfectly poised to realise its full potential as Melbourne’s city by the bay,” he said. “With a strong health and education sector, excellent employment opportunities, luxury apartment and office developments and a beach lifestyle, the face of Frankston is changing. Locals and visitors are rediscovering Frankston City with a wave of interest in our pristine beaches, fishing, boating and water sports as well as our natural reserves and arts and entertainment offering.”
Expressions of Interest for tenants are open until 1 April. For more information visit investfrankston.com/fyc
