Augusta sells industrial property for $36.8m

Augusta sells industrial property for $36.8m

In one of the biggest industrial property transactions of the year, a 4.48ha freehold site at 100 Carbine Road, Mt Wellington with 29,526 sq m of buildings has sold for $36.8 million.

The property was sold with vacant possession by Augusta Value-Add Fund No.1 Limited. It was marketed by Bayleys Real Estate senior brokers Mike Houlker, Sunil Bhana and James Valintine, with James Hill and Bayleys’ national industrial director Scott Campbell, working with the purchaser.

The new owner occupier will move into the premises in March following the departure of Bunnings Warehouse, which is relocating its Auckland distribution centre to another property.

Hill says 100 Carbine Rd is one of the largest industrial holdings in the popular Mt Wellington industrial precinct with access points off both Carbine Road and Bowden Road and an exit also onto Gabador Place.

It comprises an original warehouse and office complex dating back to the 1970s with a stud height ranging from 7m at the knee to 10m at the apex with a separate two-level air conditioned office building and a large staff cafeteria at the front.

In 2005, a new extension was constructed at the southern end of the property providing additional clear span, high stud warehousing from 9m at the knee to 11m at the apex with yard areas for storage, container devanning and car parking.

100 Carbine Rd is the third property to sell in the Augusta Value-Add Fund No. 1 portfolio, a wholesale investor fund established and managed by Augusta Funds Management, a subsidiary of NZX listed property company Augusta Capital Limited.

Augusta managing director Mark Francis says that the transaction reinforces the company’s strong track record in identifying and executing value add opportunities on behalf of investors. “We are also delighted that we were able to orchestrate an outcome that enabled valued client Bunnings to continue to operate from Carbine Road for a period that also worked for their business and for the purchaser.”
