Raw Sydney ice cream factory is ripe for redevelopment

23 February 2021 Devotees of industrial architecture will feast on this former ice cream factory in Sydney’s Camperdown, which heads for auction next month.

The former Dairy Bell factory is a blank canvas earmarked for adaptive reuse as a residential redevelopment or commercial opportunity. It was bought in 2015 by developer Theo Onisforou for $5.75m and stripped back to reveal its raw shell, including 13-metre-high trussed ceilings, beams, warehouse windows.

There’s potential to transform the 1,174 sqm warehouse into an enormous single-family home – or split it into smaller lofts and commercial spaces.

There’s plenty of character in every corner, from art-deco porthole windows on the upper to an old stable at the rear that initially housed the horse-drawn dairy float.

BresicWhitney is auctioning the warehouse at 44-50 Australia Street on 4 March 2021, but would-be-buyers can expect to drop over $10m on the Sydney property.
