CharlotteJack tenancy returns to Council

Devonport City Council has taken back vacant possession of Tenancy 2 at Providore Place, formerly trading as CharlotteJack restaurant.

Following the resumption of operational control of Providore Pace on 1 January 2020 from the former Head Lessee, Council sought to enter into new lease arrangements with the existing occupant, Ben Milbourne.

However, a new arrangement on suitable terms could not be reached.

Council’s leasing agent, Knight Frank, is actively working with other existing occupants to secure new lease agreements as required and marketing vacant tenancy opportunities at Providore Place.

Mayor Annette Rockliff said Council was looking forward to securing new tenants for the site.

“Providore Place remains a core element of LIVING CITY and Council believes the complementary development currently underway – in the form of the $40 million hotel and Waterfront Park precinct –  provide a timely foundation for jobs and economic activity in the region along with an exciting platform to support the recovery of the tourism and hospitality sector post COVID-19,” Cr Rockliff said.

“Recent interest in tenancies has been promising and aligns with information we are hearing in regard to increasing market activity generally across the City.”
