Tank Juice, Mo­mento, Bay­leys con­firmed

Matamata Chronicle - - Backyard Banter - ABBY BROWN

Bay­leys are go­ing full cir­cle. ‘‘Twenty years ago we were in the build­ing next to where Os­te­ria Da Gino now is,’’ Mar­garet Troughton said.

The real es­tate com­pany is to share the for­mer Heath­cotes site, lo­cated at 65 – 73 Arawa Street with Tank Juice, Mo­mento cafe and one yet-to-be con­firmed ten­ant.

The com­pany con­struct­ing the new build­ing, Foster De­velop, will sell the lat­ter three ten­an­cies as one free­hold ti­tle, while Bay­leys would own their ten­ancy on a free­hold ti­tle sec­tion of the build­ing.

Mo­mento’s own­ers, Courte­nay Paul and Craig Paul, said they have sev­eral lo­cals in­ter­ested in own­ing and run­ning the cafe.

Troughton said they were look­ing at re­vamp­ing their cur­rent of­fice, which was just down the road.

So when the one level build­ing came up they grabbed it.

She said hav­ing all the com­pany in a one level build­ing, in­stead of two lev­els, would im­prove the dy­nam­ics of the com- pany.

The 230m square build­ing would also have an auc­tion room and all the bells and whis­tles technology wise.
