Ballarat's original Bunnings Trade Centre in Mitchell Park will be auctioned this week and is expected to attract strong interest from developers.
Bunnings Trade is a tenant at the warehouse at 19 Waringa Drive until November, but has already moved out following the opening of the new Bunnings in Delacombe.
The 6738sqm property includes surplus land that could be developed or sold.
"It has three components that could very easily be subdivided, subject to council approval, and it also has a feature office showroom complex at the front," said Graeme Watson from Burgess Rawson commercial real estate.
Mr Watson said the location, close to the Western Highway, would be a benefit to many potential buyers.
"It's been good enough for Bunnings, so it will well and truly be good enough for other tenants," Mr Watson said.
"The location capitalises on a recently upgraded road network, which services the western part of Victorian and connects to Melbourne."
The auction will take place on site at 12 noon on September 19 with the site expected to fetch upwards of $1.75 million.
