When we look at the industrial market in Newcastle, there are five key precincts to consider in 2020, according to the February 2020 report from valuation firm Herron Todd White.

The property valuation firm found, the Beresfield precinct continues to grow with 16 hectares of land sold at the end of 2019.

There have been a number of strata and stand alone buildings constructed in this area in the past 12 months and there are a number of buildings in the planning or initial construction phase.

In the Cardiff precinct, the extension of Munibung Road with the expected link to Lake Road at the western end has seen a number of new developments at that locality, with a number of developments recently completed.

Meanwhile in the Steel River precinct in Mayfield West, there have been sales of development land, however the market for established properties has slowed.

HTW valuers said, "we also note the completion and sale of the Myspace development which is targeted at the smaller end of the market, having units with areas less than 100 square metres."

"Thornton is very stable with no significant new developments, however we note that there have been some recent sales in that area."

"Finally, the Tomago precinct, which is more suited to heavy industrial, is starting to show some signs of activity after a relatively stagnant period."

"Overall, the key issue facing the local market is the demand for quality industrial properties outstripping supply. Moreover, decreases in lending rates have the potential to lead to an increase in investor activity, however there have been very few sales to investors recently."

"We are seeing more owner-occupier sales in recent months indicating that the reduction in the cash rate is having the effect of stimulating the market," they concluded.
