One of the most iconic buildings in the NSW country town of Forbes will end its connection with the banking industry at the end of this month.

The ANZ bank will close the doors on its tenancy on May 29, signalling a new future for this late 1800s, twos torey colonial building.

Mitch Frail, of Burgess Rawson, says the building anchors a 921-square-metre block on the main street of the wheatbelt town’s central business district.

“The bank has maintained the exterior of the building and its ground-floor tenancy to the highest level,” Frail says.

“The first floor has been untenanted for some time, but was originally designed as a manager’s residence.”

The property offers some 431 square metres over its two levels and has a wide range of permitted uses.

“It could be used to provide childcare, educational or professional services; perhaps as a medical centre, or even boutique accommodation,” he says.

“Ideally, it needs someone who can see potential within the character of the building to create a new offer that will add to the Forbes landscape.

“This is an opportunity to own or lease a rare heritage building in a bustling NSW regional centre.”
