Brisbane’s South Lures Stockland With $41.5m Site Sale

Brisbane’s South Lures Stockland With $41.5m Site Sale (1)

A 21.25-hectare parcel of land in Brisbane’s south has been snapped up for $41.5 million, as investors swoop on industrial and logistics properties with sale and leaseback deals.

Diversified property group Stockland and joint venture partner Fife Group snapped up the industrial development site, located in Willawong about 16-kilometres south of Brisbane CBD.

CBRE, who managed the sale, would not be drawn on the identity of the buyer, other than confirming it had been purchased by a “domestic entity”.

The latest move builds on Stockland’s partnership with Sydney-based fund manager Fife, after the two entered into a joint venture arrangement for the development of more than 70 hectares of logistics facilities in western Sydney in October 2019.

Caterpillar equipment dealer Hastings Deering offloaded the Willawong property, and had undertaken major works at the site in 2013.

Hastings Deering, which was taken over by Malaysia based Sime Darby in 1992, is well known in Queensland, where it sells and rents machinery such as Caterpillar earthmoving equipment.

Property records show the company had purchased the Willawong site in June 2011 for $19.4 million.

ASX-listed Stockland has said it is looking to expand its workplace and logistics portfolio of assets by 2024.

The landholding, at 182 Bowhill Road, has dual frontage on Bowhill and Sherbrooke Roads at the northern end of the southside’s “Golden Triangle” located within Ipswich Road, Beaudesert Road and the Logan Motorway.

Marketed as one of Brisbane’s last 20-hectare freehold industrial parcels, CBRE’s Chris O’Brien, Edward Bull and Peter Turnbull managed the transaction, which includes a short-term leaseback to Hastings Deering.

“Given the appeal of the short-term holding income, there was strong interest from offshore and onshore parties,” Turnbull said.

Nearby, ESR Australia is developing a $57 million industrial estate at 450 Sherbrooke Road in Willawong.

It recently started construction on the project’s first stage, a purpose-built transport depot.

Further south, Brisbane developer Pointcorp is behind a 157-hectare logistics estate in Logan City.

The Crestmead logistics estate, located on the corner of Green and Clarke Road, is expected to be worth $1.5 billion when completed.

The Logan based project’s first stage—36 hectares of the industrial estate—was snapped up by Singapore-based property giant Mapletree Investments for $90 million in late 2019.

Mirvac Sells Golden Triangle Tower for $87m

Golden Triangle Tower

Melbourne-based property fund manager Forza Capital has picked up a prominent office building in Brisbane’s “Golden Triangle” from Mirvac for $86.7 million.

The property, located at 340 Adelaide Street—on the corner of Adelaide and Wharf Streets, comprises 12,800sq m of B-Grade office space across 17-levels, together with a ground floor cafe and parking for 100 cars.

In recent years, Mirvac has refurbished the building, upgrading the lobby and repositioning the external ground plane and retail.

Mirvac chief investment officer Brett Draffen said the proceeds from the sale will be redeployed into prime and A-grade commercial assets as well as its $22.4 billion development pipeline across the residential, office and industrial sectors.

The deal, negotiated by CBRE’s Flint Davidson, Tom Phipps and Bruce Baker, represents an 11 per cent premium to its book value in June.

“As the first major, post-Covid capital markets transaction in the Brisbane CBD, this deal highlights the demand from onshore investors for quality office assets,” Phipps said.

“As travel restrictions ease we expect the market to awaken in the first half of next year fuelled by historically low financing costs and Brisbane’s attractive yield spread.”

Forza Capital director Ashley Wain said the asset represented exceptional value, given the building’s comprehensive refurbishment program, and was transacted with a high degree of certainty over a period of one month.

“Shortly after Covid struck, [we] identified the opportunity to prepare our investor base of sophisticated investors for opportunistic property investments.

“Speed to transact was anticipated to be critical and we believed getting early capital commitments and being able to transact quickly would be paramount to securing new investments on attractive metrics,” Wain said.

The acquisition represented $52.5 million of equity from Forza’s client base of family offices, high net worth advisory groups and individuals, and will now sit in the newly-established Forza 340 Adelaide Street Fund.

“The uncertainty in office investment markets has created really attractive investment metrics which, when combined with highly competitive debt funding, results in a target 8 per cent per annum distribution yield over the first five years of the investment,” Wain said.

Last week, Dexus listed a neighbouring A-grade office tower, located at 10 Eagle Street, with price expectations of $300 million.

Mirvac offloads Brisbane office building for $87m

Mirvac office building

Mirvac has offloaded a 17-storey office building in Brisbane to Melbourne-based property fund manager Forza Capital for $86.75 million in one of the first institutional grade office deals to take place in the city since COVID-19 struck.

The building, which is in Brisbane’s ‘Golden Triangle’ at 340 Adelaide Street, had undergone an extensive refurbishment by Mirvac and sold at an 11 per cent premium to its last book valuation in June.

The property, which is 93 per cent leased to tenants such as Oracle, Cover-more Insurance and the Attorney General’s Office, has a 3.8 year weighted average lease expiry.

Brett Draffen, chief investment officer at Mirvac, said proceeds from the sale would be redeployed to grow its asset creation business and would allow the group to “capitalise on opportunities to create Australia’s next generation of workplaces, residential communities and mixed-use precincts”.

The office tower is the first asset to be acquired by Forza Capital following a $240 million capital raising from its client base of family offices and high net worth advisory groups in September and will sit in the newly established Forza 340 Adelaide Street Fund.

Forza Capital director Adam Murchie said they had advised their investor base to be prepared for opportunistic property investments shortly after COVID-19 had struck.

“Speed to transact was anticipated to be critical and we believed getting early capital commitments and being able to transact quickly would be paramount to securing new investments on attractive metrics.”

Forza Capital director Ashley Wain said the uncertainty in the office market had created attractive investment metrics.

“When combined with highly competitive debt funding [the metrics] result in a target eight per cent per annum distribution yield over the first five years of the investment.”

The deal was negotiated by CBRE’s Flint Davidson, Tom Phipps and Bruce Baker, and Matt Lawrence arranging the debt.

“As the first major, post-COVID capital markets transaction in the Brisbane CBD, this deal highlights the demand from onshore investors for quality office assets,” Mr Phipps said.

“As travel restrictions ease we expect the market to awaken in the first half of next year fuelled by historically low financing costs and Brisbane’s attractive yield spread.”
