NEWTOWN BASE: The old Wellington Free Ambulance base in Newtown could provide an astute investor with the chance to redevelop.

The former Newtown ambulance station near Wellington Hospital is up for sale.

The station, at 54 Owen St, became redundant after Wellington Free Ambulance established a new station right next to the hospital, although it has been used in recent years for staff training.

Colliers International agent Michelle Spiers said the two-storey office building was available with vacant possession or a short-term lease back to Wellington Free Ambulance.

Fellow agent Peter Wilkin said there was opportunity for an astute investor to add value by redeveloping the 1108 square metre freehold site or converting it to residential use. Tenders close on March 12.
