Updated: Wolfe St sale the big prize as 5 commercial properties sold at auction, 2 post-auction sales

Published 20 September 2018, updated 4 October 2018:
5 of the 9 Auckland properties auctioned in Bayleys’ Total Property 6 series were sold under the hammer on 19 September, and 2 more – on Wellesley St in the cbd and in Ponsonby – have been sold post-auction.

The biggest prize was the price paid for a small warehouse in the middle of Wolfe St, in the heart of the cbd, sold for a land price of $19,298/m² after standing vacant for 23 years.

For that sale, Bayleys’ international division head, James Chan, flew to Hong Kong to translate the auction proceedings for the vendor.

Argosy buys Albany Warehouse

Argosy Property Ltd has unconditionally acquired The Warehouse property at 11 Coliseum Drive in Albany for $26.4 million. The property is next to the Argosy-owned Albany Mega Centre and comprises 7600m² of warehouse, 760m² of office, mezzanine & garden centre and 413 parking spaces.

Argosy chief executive Peter Mence said on Monday the acquisition price represented an initial passing yield of 5.0% and the pre-tax internal rate of return was 6.78%. The property has 6.5 years to run on the initial 12-year lease.

Mr Mence said the acquisition size was within Argosy’s investment policy criteria and the property had met all the necessary due diligence requirements: “We are very pleased to have secured a strategically important property and strengthened our relationship with a longstanding & valued partner in The Warehouse Group. The purchase allows us to now consider a range of organic growth options across the entire Albany Mega Centre site. Longer term, we are excited about the opportunity & value this acquisition can deliver for Argosy & its shareholders.”
