“This warehouse certainly has some history too, housing an established antique and salvage business for the last 25 years.
“The owners knew at some point they’d be trading the inner-city life for Byron Bay, and when they found the perfect warehouse up north it was time to make the move, and they are taking their business ‘Elements I love…’ with them.”
Mr Palm said the developer knock down/rebuild option was obvious, but there had also been plenty of interest from arty types, architects and builders who could see beyond that.
“The potential of creating one very large or multiple warehouse spaces utilising the space and the bones of the building’s industrial aesthetic is an exciting prospect,” Mr Palm said.
“The ground floor offers plenty of scope for off-street parking, garaging work vehicles or high bay storage, as well as offices or commercial spaces.
“On the second level – the old floorboards, exposed metal roof trusses and original iron windows where the northern light floods in, would make great open-plan living spaces.
