Logistics specialist Logos buys Wiri site

Australian vertically integrated logistics property specialist Logos Property Pty Ltd has bought a 10ha site in Auckland for its first move into New Zealand.

The Australian company said yesterday it had bought the property at the corner of Roscommon & Wiri Station Rds in Wiri from Fletcher Building Ltd subsidiary Fletcher Concrete & Infrastructure Ltd.

The site has access to State Highway 20 (the South-western Motorway), and is near the Conlinxx Inland Port.

Logos joint managing director Trent Iliffe said the company would develop the site into a 55,000m² logistics estate: “The New Zealand industrial & logistics sector has experienced strong growth over the past few years on the back of the country’s underlying economic fundamentals, increasing population and, importantly, the rise in e-commerce. We believe there will be many opportunities for Logos to partner with our investors & tenant customers across New Zealand over the coming years, and the Wiri site is an important and strategic first development for the group.”

The company’s other managing director, John Marsh, said: “Wiri is the key industrial suburb in Auckland, which is experiencing significant growth due to its proximity to key freight routes and as the market widens from Auckland’s historical industrial hubs of Penrose & Mt Wellington.

“We are currently in discussions with a number of existing tenant customers from our Asia-Pacific portfolio to develop purpose-built opportunities on the site, including large-format logistics operators, FMCG (fast-moving consumer goods), e-commerce operators & 3PL (third-party logistics) groups.”

Logos has operations in Australia, China, Singapore, Indonesia & India, managing every aspect of logistics real estate, from sourcing land or facilities to undertaking development & asset management for leading global real estate investors.

At 1 January 2018, Logos had:

  • $A4 billion of equity commitments to 14 ventures with a targeted end-value of over $A9 billion of assets under management
  • 42 projects or estates owned & under development
  • Over 2.9 million m² of logistics real estate owned & under development, and
  • 9 corporate offices throughout Asia & the Pacific.

Published 15 March 2018, updated 16 March 2018:
A new purpose-built warehouse in Euroclass’s 40ha Stonehill Business Park at Wiri (pictured) was passed in at CBRE’s auction on Thursday on a 5% yield, but sold on a 4.9% yield after further negotiation.

Rock Solid Holdings Ltd (trading as Euroclass Design & Build, directors Peter & Julie Bishop) began developing the business park after the McLaughlins Rd quarry was closed 11 years ago. The business park is separated from the Manukau Harbour by the Puhinui Reserve and has 2 prisons on the other side.

The Bishops started their Euroclass business in 1987 as a design/build company focused on office/warehouse development, then grew their expertise in industrial property.

This development, designed for Cargo Plus Ltd, has a clearspan warehouse with stud heights of 9.3m at the knee, rising to 11.3m, 3 roller doors, offices on 2 floors and 3 road crossings, including a separate entrance for the carpark.
