CBRE’s Max Ruttner, who managed the sale with Alex Brierley, Josh Rutman and JJ Heng, said the purchaser was a local who intended to hang on to the property.

The spirited bidding mirrors another recent city auction in which a historic four-level art-deco building at 220 Bourke sold in April to rich-lister Spiros Alysandratos for $15.205 million on a sub-3 per cent yield after 661 bids.

Last month, food entrepreneur Guy Grossi sold the Bottega Restaurant building at 72-74 Bourke Street for an estimated $7.2 million on a yield below 3 per cent.

Mr Ruttner said the couple had attended two other CBD auctions and decided the time was right to sell rather than pass the building on to family members.
