Hikers make tracks to Ruthven Street
National retailer Mountain Designs has taken a new lease in Ruthven Street as Toowoomba’s profile as a gateway to Southern Queensland’s hiking and orienteering country continues to blossom.
LJ Hooker Commercial Toowoomba’s Scott Playle has secured a five-year lease for the outdoor recreation specialists whose product line is now showcased through more than 30 retail outlets across Australia.
“Mountain Designs are a very exciting retailer,” said Mr Playle. “Their retail stores are bespoke and engaging and the landlord worked with Mountain Designs to create a fit out that maintains their brand’s vision. With the equipment and accessories in their range, they are very specific in the amount of space they need to cultivate and maintain their unique customer experience.
“The Ruthven Street retail store will be a popular gateway store for hikers, orienteering enthusiasts, climbers and campers taking advantage of Table Top Mountain and Ravensbourne and Crows Nest National Parks and other adventure spots throughout the Downs and western regions.”
LJ Hooker Commercial advised the landlord on the opportunity to split the large Ruthven Street to create two retail tenancies, one with an eight-metre frontage, from where Mountain Designs now operates.
“The landlord undertook an extensive amount of work and now has two tenanted retail spaces, which will provide for the long-term optimisation of their Ruthven Street asset,” said Mr Playle.
Mountain Designs has signed an initial five-year lease with options on the site, at a rate of $285sqm plus GST.
