Kiwi Income Property Trust Purchases NGC House for $19.3 million

Auckland – Kiwi Income Property Trust has entered into an agreement with American owned Amtrust Pacific to acquire the NGC Building at 44 The Terrace in Wellington for $19.3 million.

The property is located immediately adjacent to Unisys House, which was recently purchased by the Trust for $44 million. Situated centrally within the government district, the 13 level, 10,000m² tower was constructed in 1988 and substantially upgraded in 2002. It is fully leased, with the major tenants being Natural Gas Corporation, Commerce Commission, Tertiary Education Commission, and Department of Corrections.

Chief Executive of the Manager of the Trust, Angus McNaughton, said that the attributes of the property are similar to the recently acquired Unisys House, as it will further diversify and strengthen the Trust’s tenant mix.

“The property is well located with an excellent lease profile, and has potential for rental growth. It has been upgraded to a good standard and there are synergies with Unisys House. This acquisition will consolidate the Trust’s ownership in the northern CBD.”

NGC House will be the Trust’s fourth major office asset in the Wellington market, the others being BP House, the Majestic Centre, and the recently acquired Unisys House. Subject only to Overseas Investment Commission approval, the acquisition will be settled on September 30, 2004, and will be funded by debt.
