New phase begins for building

IT’S AN exciting time for the proprietors and staff of Gympie Regional Realty as they settle into their new premises in the former Chambers building on the corner of Mary and Channon Sts.

Proprietors John and Margaret Cochrane bought the building a few months ago and moved in on June 27.

“Moving is a massive job when we have to keep an eye on servicing our clients,” Mr Cochrane said.

“What made it difficult was that on Monday morning we were without our phones and we apologise to anyone who tried to get through to us. Renovations to the top storey are still being carried out and will be professional office space for lease while the middle floor, which is at street level, is being occupied by Gympie Regional Realty.”

That floor will incorporate a coffee shop that will be open for breakfast and lunch and also available for social functions.

The lower floor, which is 200sq m, will be office space to rent.

“We’ll renovate the building from start to finish but will retain the facade. We think it’s an ideal position. It’s the only three-storey building with three-street frontage (in Gympie) and one of those is the main street.”
