More specifically the property is situated midway between the intersection of Halkett Street and Bath Street with Beresford Street (which is a one way system) in close proximity to the primary retail locations along Queen Street and King Street.
Beresford Street links Bath Street and Halkett Place and the property benefits from good frontage directly onto Beresford Street. Halkett Street is a pedestrianised shopping street that links with Queen Street to the south and runs parallel with Halkett Place.
Notable retailers in the locality include Jaeger, HSBC, McDonalds, Apple and Alliance Tesco in addition to a number of local retailers. The Fish Market (just to the north of the property) and the Central Market (to the west) are in close proximity.
