The retail outlet underneath the landmark Coca Cola sign in Sydney's Kings Cross has sold to a private trust for $37.3 million, netting the seller a 57% capital gain in two years.

The Kings Cross Centre, 82-94 Darlinghurst Road, currently has 98.5% tenancy, with Coles leasing until 2022.

LJ Hooker Commercial Sydney chief executive officer Warren Duncan said when the Kings Cross Centre was sold in 2013, it transacted on a passing yield of 8.3%, and this week it sold at 6.9%.

"We’ve seen yields compress dramatically over the last 24 months in Sydney," Mr Duncan said.

"The centre was well positioned for capital growth, and tenants were following the changing demographic of the Potts Point area. 

“Adding to the appeal of the Kings Cross Centre is the fact it’s located in one of the most densely populated areas of Sydney, with an estimated 30,000 people living within a square kilometre.”
