GMT development activity exceeds $230 million

Goodman (NZ) Limited, the Manager of Goodman Property Trust (“GMT” or “Trust”), is pleased to announce the commencement of two new industrial projects totalling $54.1 million[1].

Utilising almost four hectares of development land the preleased facilities will add 19,467 sqm of rentable area to the portfolio and generate over $3.3 million of annual income once completed.

The new commitments add to the large volume of work currently underway with the total value of these projects now $233.0 million.

Goodman (NZ) Limited's Chief Executive Officer, John Dakin said “We’re delighted to be extending our development programme with these substantial new projects. It continues the strong momentum of the last 18-24 months and further progresses the rapid build-out of our strategic land holdings.”

The projects include:

+ A design-built warehouse facility of 14,050 sqm for Australasian packaging specialist NCI at Savill Link in Otahuhu
+ A 5,417 sqm warehouse expansion for national carrier and existing customer, Move Logistics at Highbrook Business Park.
Excluding land allocations, the two projects require additional investment of $39.5 million.
John Dakin said, “Regional growth and the impact of online retailing is driving demand for well-located industrial and business space facilities across Auckland. With portfolio occupancy of 99% we are effectively at capacity. To alleviate the supply shortfall we are intensifying our development programme with a combination of build-to-lease and design-built facilities.”
A list of these current projects is included in the appendix to this announcement.

[1] Estimated total project cost including land allocation, construction costs and all management and other professional fees. Final costs to be determined by formal tender process.
