Chinese investor pays lucky sum for Brisbane IGA

A freestanding IGA supermarket has secured a seven figure sum after it was purchased by a Chinese investor.

The buyer put their faith in the numbers, paying $3,398,888 for the BOONDALL supermarket. The number eight is associated with prosperity in Chinese culture. The transaction reflected a yield of 8.1%.

Set on a 3,434 square metre site at 2138 Sandgate Road, the 790 square metre supermarket was developed by Hardev Property two years ago. It was sold by in an off-market transaction by Michael Harcourt and Jon Tyson of Savills Retail Sales.

Luck aside, Harcourt said the high profile main road location was a key factor for the buyer.

“IGA BOONDALL is underpinned by a 10-year lease with a further three five-year options and also features convenient on grade parking for approximately 51 vehicles,” said Harcourt.

According to Tyson, the property combined a number of highly sought after characteristics in the convenience retail market.

“It boasts a prominent left-hand location to capture outbound traffic out of Brisbane and a core non-discretionary offering of grocery and fresh food items,” said Tyson.

“Having opened its doors just two years ago, the BOONDALL IGA Supermarket is now well established and supported in the local community. As Savills originally secured IGA as the tenant, it is rewarding to have now closed the loop on the property with a strong sales result for both vendor and buyer,” he said.
