Office opportunity perfect for healthcare and medical practices

Channel Magazine’s Aidan Bennett discovers an office opportunity that may save a suitable healthcare practice thousands

After 12 years as a the base of a very successful dermatology business, this sensational 189 square metre ground floor Orbit Drive office has become available, uniquely with many of the expensive fit-out features of a medical sector practice still in place.

“We know that fitting out these type of medical or healthcare practice rooms can be very expensive, so any new tenant has the opportunity to save quite a bit if this space suits them,” says Jane McKee of Bayleys Commercial, who is marketing the property for lease on behalf of the owners with colleague Ian Waddams. “It’s a real opportunity. It’s also interesting that the previous tenant – there has been only one since the unit was built – has duplicated the layout of the office at their new purpose-built site. It clearly worked very well for them.”
The day Channel Magazine popped in for a look, the sunny and welcoming offices were getting a fresh lick of paint to make them like brand new. A lovely feature of the spacious main entrance and reception area is an exposed brick architectural wall which fits in well with the wave design window frosting. Frosting has been used extensively on external and internal glass to provide good light as well as privacy in the many rooms used for patients.
Other existing features of this Orbit Drive office that will suit the healthcare and medical sector are three consulting rooms, lab area, sluice room, a larger consulting room (or theatre) with own air conditioning unit. Specialist medical lighting units with arms remain in the consulting rooms. The offices for the practice manager or practice reception staff also have dual doors so they have easy access to the both the reception/waiting area and the internal rooms.
“While this is an opportunity for medical businesses this office configuration will also suit other professional businesses, such as accountants, lawyers, financial businesses, engineers, surveyers etc., due to the number of excellent work spaces,” adds Jane McKee. “The owners are also happy to tweak the configuration for the right tenant.”
The ground floor space has road frontage and profile and is very centrally located, being close to the motorway and AUT Millennium as well as cafés and eateries. In addition to the rooms already detailed, there are two offices, a kitchenette and lunch room. The fitout has a code of compliance certificate and the air-conditioning has been upgraded. There are six carparks with more available if required.
Bayleys' Jan McKee and Ian Waddams are seeking interest from all professional businesses that require space of this size. But Unit i1, 5 Orbit Drive may be the perfect home for physiotherapists, dermatologists, dentists, health specialists, beauty or appearance medicine specialists. Subject to resource consent if required.
