In 2006 Rob and Keryn Honeycombe teamed up with Rob’s dad John to purchase this landmark South Brisbane building at 17 Cordelia Street. Bootmakers Astill and Freeman had the building constructed in 1897 and the two storey brick warehouse has been recognised by Brisbane City Council for its heritage significance. In 2000 they placed the building on their heritage register. The last of its industrial use ceased in the early 1990’s. In September 2007 the Old Boot Factory received a well-deserved facelift and became the home of Bees Nees City Realty and serviced office business, aptly titled “The Old Boot Factory”.

After a few great years at The Old Boot Factory, it was time to move. Just this year, we relocated to our brand new home, a fully refurbished building which was previously the Murri Mura Centre just across from Musgrave Park.  Despite the move, The old “boot factory” name came with us and we’re loving this exciting location on Cordelia St. in South Brisbane.

The Old Boot Factory serviced offices have a great history and our office space certainly caters to most workplace needs. If you’re looking to relocate your office and work amongst our friendly team, we’d love to help!

Just 950m to Queen St Mall, central to the cafes and lifestyle of both South Bank and West End, and just 5 minutes’ walk to the train station and bus interchange and overlooking Musgrave Park. We have 2 offices, and workstations available. A full range of administration services is available and flexible agreement terms from as little as two months.
