RSB Knapman House Expressions of Interest for lease

A message from the Executive Director

I would like to inform you of exciting news we have for our Pirie Street headquarters, Knapman House, and how we plan to continue providing you with the highest level of service in the future.

Very soon, a sign will be erected outside Knapman House, calling for expressions of interest to lease space on the site. 

If all goes according to plan, the Pirie Street site will be sold and transformed into a modern, multi-storey complex, that will include new state of the art facilities to accommodate RSB’s low vision and assistive technology services.  

During the redevelopment, a temporary location close to the Knapman House site will be secured, allowing seamless delivery of services whilst these new premises are built.

The Board’s focus is to secure RSB’s long-term financial future and therefore profits from the sale of the Knapman House will be reinvested.  

I emphasise that these plans are in the early stages and it will be business as usual at Knapman House for the next 12 months to two years.

I will continue to provide you with updates as plans progress. 

If you have any questions regarding this exciting development, feel free to call us on 1300 944 306.
