Building 4
The Gatehouse

Located at the entrance to Sub Base Platypus on High Street, the Gatehouse was constructed in 1910 to house the offices of the gasworks. The exterior originally featured face brick and render with a two-storey verandah.

When the Gasworks closed, the offices were leased as residential flats, and then converted to a Gatehouse for the Torpedo Factory, with a residence on the first floor. This repurposing resulted in the enclosure of the verandah, replacement of joinery, and rendering of the whole facade.

It is envisaged that the Gatehouse could be converted and renovated into two 2-bedroom apartments for residential tenancy, plus a Ranger Station adjacent to the High Street vehicle entry. Alternatively, opportunities for commercial or retail tenancies could be explored and may work well for a proponent also seeking to utilise the Torpedo Factory. New landscaping will provide privacy and north-east facing open space.

The Gatehouse is a Type A leasing opportunity.

Type A leasing opportunities provide tenants with a serviced shell, ready for tenant fitout and occupation, subject to Harbour Trust Planning Approval.
