The project is known as ‘The Stockyards of Camden’, 30-34 Edward street, Camden presents the largest mixed-use parcel in the Camden CBD.
Inspired by the iconic ‘Grounds of Alexandria’ and ‘Hive Byron Bay ’, the Stockyards of Camden development has been designed to envisage a unique destination centre for Camden, attracting visitors to the town and serving locals with an array of new retail and lifestyle offerings, providing a complete refresh to the town, whilst upholding the rich heritage of Camden.
Appointed Architect from ARDesign Ronald Azzopard said "The philosophy of this development is to provide a destination shopping experience with a link to the heritage of this site and the surrounding Camden township. This development will utilise all sustainable and recycled material and will provide an open welcoming space that will entice visitors and will allow them to browse and engage vibrant retailers within this casual and relaxed safe setting"
Erected in the shape of a battle-axe, the property sits on 2.82 Hectares* of prime Camden land and is labelled under a B4 Mixed Use and RU1 Primary Production zoning. The site generates a holding income of $150,000 per annum to family business ‘ Jim Hindmarsh & Son’, who run and manage the livestock in the saleyards. The lease entails a 5 year term with fixed 3% annual increases, expiring in November 2025.
Commenting on the exciting opportunity, Colliers Expert Agent Nick Estephen said “Taking inspiration from iconic mixed-use developments such as The Grounds of Alexandria, Hive Byron Bay & Habitat Byron Bay, The Stockyards of Camden has been designed and will be built on the philosophy of creating a unique destination centre, serving all communities, both locals and visitors, through quality experiences, products, innovations, and an endless vision that will sympathetically marry Camden’s unique rich history with its vibrant future potential.”
Dating back almost 100 years ago, the original yards were constructed from seasoned turpentine posts with three rails bolted 200mm x 75mmof northern hardwood. A circular sale ring approximately 17 metres diameter accommodated 300 persons and raised auctioneer’s rostrum. This structure was lined by two layers of red mahogany with the existing single storey red brick administration building and toilet block still existing from this period.
In January 2013, Jim Hindmarsh and Company took over the running of the Camden Livestock Selling Centre which is today known as Hindmarsh Inglis Livestock Selling Centre.
The company has been operating since 1995 and is a 100% locally owned family business servicing livestock and property needs throughout the Southern Highlands, Goulburn, Camden, Braidwood, Nowra & beyond
