A Sydney-based private investor with an overseas partner, has outlaid $21.3 million for a Woolworths anchored shopping centre at Coburg.

The strata-titled Coburg Hill Shopping Centre was sold with a WALE of 11 years including 14 years remaining on the Woolworths lease which accounts for 72% of the centre’s 4419 square metres GLA.

The sale was made on a passing yield of 6%.

The Centre is 97% leased with a net passing income of $1.28 million from Woolworths and the seven specialty stores including Degani and Regency Pharmacy.

According to CBRE’s Victorian Retail Investments team lead by Justin Dowers, Kevin Tong & Lewis Tong the transaction represented an extremely good deal given the strata title nature of the holding.

The sale follows that of the Woolworths Group owned Keysborough South Shopping Centre which last month sold to a local investor for $33.13 million.

The property attracted 11 offers including locally based Chinese investors before the current lockdown.

Mr Dowers said the sale provided further evidence that investors continue to seek safe havens in assets underwritten by long term leases to non-discretionary spend tenants.

“This is the second sub $50 million shopping centre sale in Victoria, post COVID-19, and both have attracted significant interest from a range of local and off-shore buyer groups.

“Investors are obviously demonstrating that they have a good appetite for this sort of stock and that should give institutional owners confidence in their sub $50m retail holdings around the country,” Mr Dowers said.

The average yield of the last 10 Victorian neighbourhood centre sales is 6.15%.
