Charter Hall expands Brisbane Trade Coast holdings with $6 million industrial site purchase

Charter Hall’s Core Plus Industrial Fund (CPIF) has bought an industrial land holding near the Port of Brisbane in an off-market deal for $6 million, adding to its existing holdings on Lytton Road at Hemmant.

The 1517 Lytton Road, Hemmant property is spread over 17,766 square metres and is a General Industry zoned site within the Trade Coast precinct.   

The site had historically been used as part of the overall Inghams chicken facility and most recently as a transport yard.

Selling agent Shaw Harrison of Savills leased out the vacant yards and split the site into smaller tenancies, occupied by hardstand and transport depot tenants. The total current income of $520,000 represents a yield of 8.66% which includes a rental guarantee for the vacant yard.

Harrison said the acquisition of 1517 Lytton Road “adds the final piece of the puzzle” following Charter Hall’s previous acquisitions of neighbouring properties, 1510 Lytton Road in 2014 and 80 Canberra Street in 2012. The latest brings its total holding to more than 12 hectares of future developable land backed by a weighted average lease expiry of around 14 years with some medium-term development upside.

“The acquisition is right on strategy in terms of investing in highly land constrained markets within very close proximity to key infrastructure in the Port of Brisbane and Gateway Motorway. It enables us to work closely with, and provide flexibility, in terms of expansion or reconfiguration requirements, for one of our key customers, Inghams,” Charter Hall’s head of industrial Paul Ford said.

CPIF focuses on sourcing properties in the industrial and logistics sectors of major Australian capital cities. The fund was launched in April 2007, raising $350 million in equity commitments, says its website.

Harrison said the fully fenced property with workshops and separate yards provide attractive holding income while the new owner assesses future options.

 “The Trade Coast provides convenient road access direct from the Port to both the north and south of Brisbane via the Gateway Bridge and Motorways and, as such, is a strategic logistics location and busy route for trucks and heavy vehicles. This site will be the next big thing in the Trade Coast precinct,” said Harrison.
