A 405 bed student accommodation facility in Adelaide is set to hit the market with price expectations of $50 million.  

It offers 96 apartments leased to The University of Adelaide under a long term agreement until 2024.

Located at 210 Grote Street, Adelaide, the purpose built complex is set on a site of over 5,333 square metres with a gross building area of 11,600 square metres.

It has been listed for sale through Conal Newland and Paul Savitz of Savills Australia and Jamie Guerra and Roger Klem of JLL.  

International education is considered a key contributor to the state’s economy, positioned as a top export sector for South Australia that generated more than A$1.6 billion in 2018, according to Conal Newland Director, Student Accommodation, Savills Australia.  

“A State Government organisation established in 1998, Study Adelaide, has supported student growth in the city, promoting the state as an education destination and helping international students settle into the broader community,” Newland said.  

“Recent announcements of extensions to temporary post-study visa for international students will further strengthen the attraction of the city globally for both study and work.”

As such, international enrolments across South Australia have grown by 13.6% over the year to March 2019, outpacing the national average over the same period, reaffirming the state’s standing as the preferred destination for international students. 

Located in the Adelaide CBD, the asset is situated within proximity to The University of Adelaide, University of South Australia, Flinders University City Campus, Torrens University, the Adelaide Central Market, Chinatown, Rundle Mall and the Royal Adelaide Hospital.  

Jamie Guerra, Managing Director/South Australia, JLL, noted the University of Adelaide Village is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and provides a safe and supportive environment with a focus on fostering a strong sense of student community. 

Adelaide is home to four universities, three of which are well renowned public South Australian universities and Adelaide has over 71,540 full-time students with about 60% studying in the two main Universities, including The University of Adelaide. 

According to research from Savills Australia, the critical undersupply of appropriate purpose built student accommodation (PBSA) in many capital cities, high occupancy levels within stabilised operational properties, robust revenue growth and attractive yield pricing in comparison to other domestic and global real estate asset classes, all contribute to student accommodation being an attractive investment. 

Offers on 210 Grote Street, Adelaide close August 15.
