Seven NSW & Queensland childcare centres listed for commercial auction

Staff reporterNovember 22, 20200 min read

Cushman & Wakefield’s National Investment Sales Team has been appointed to sell a portfolio of alternative investment assets across New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria, that are expected to sell for a total of approximately $60 million when they go under the hammer on 10 December in Sydney.

The portfolio comprises 15 freestanding investments across the popular sectors of fast food, fuel and convenience retail and childcare. The fast food assets, situated in suburban and regional locations across the east coast, offer long term leases to major brands including Hungry Jacks, McDonald’s and KFC.

Seven childcare centres are up for grabs in strategic New South Wales and Queensland locations. A NAB retail bank branch in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, and a Mitre 10 in Airlie Beach, Queensland complete the portfolio.

The auction is expected to be led by a fast food and convenience retail investment on the Gold Coast jointly leased by United Petroleum and ASX Listed Collins Foods (KFC) with a price guide upwards of $8.5 million. In addition, a Dee Why property occupied by KFC for the last 30 years is anticipated to be hotly contested and sell for in excess of $6 million.

A brand-new facility in Brisbane with a 20-year initial lease term as well as a centre in the Campbelltown region of Sydney will lead the childcare offerings.

Cushman & Wakefield’s National Investment Sales team of Michael Collins, Tom Moreland, Aaron Dahl, Yosh Mendis, Geoff Sinclair, Ryan Cross and Billy Dent are managing the sales campaign with the auction of all 15 assets to be held on December 10 at Doltone House, Sydney, and live streamed via Auction Now with live bidding rooms in Brisbane and Melbourne.

The upcoming auction follows the sale of 12 assets for more than $60 million as part of Cushman & Wakefield’s November portfolio auction.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Head of National Investment Sales, Michael Collins, said: “We continue to see the market for private investment strengthen, given the sheer weight of capital targeting defensive assets and yield. The results of our recent portfolio auction show that the appetite among high net worth investors for properties with long term leases and blue-chip tenants continues to grow.”

Cushman & Wakefield’s Associate Director, Tom Moreland, added: “We anticipate a huge level of interest in the upcoming auction, particularly as fast food properties have continued to be one of the best performing assets during the pandemic. Childcare centres also remain high on investor’s wish lists due to the strong Government support provided at the start of COVID-19, with many investors viewing the sector as highly resilient.”

Michael Collins added: “The portfolio coming to market in December is one of the most geographically diverse we’ve seen in 2020 with properties spanning metro, suburban and regional locations up and down the east coast of Australia.”
