SUPA IGA Doonside, a freestanding supermarket in an established suburb west of Sydney's Blacktown, has sold for $14,750,000 via an expressions of interest campaign.

A private investor bought the property on an initial yield of 6.1 percent, said selling agents Steven Lerche and Pat De Maria of Savills.

“The opportunity to secure a supermarket with both a net lease structure and built in rental growth is a rare prospect and therefore resulted in overwhelming interest from local, interstate and overseas investors," Lerche said.

The property has a gross leasable area of 4,402.3 square metres and is 100 percent leased to a wholly owned subsidiary of ASX-listed Metcash Limited, expiring in 2024 with a 10-year option. There are an additional four internal sub-lease tenancies. 

The centre sits on a site area of 15,300 square metres with on grade parking for about 224 vehicles.

Its location also allows for future redevelopment due to its B2 Local Centre Zoning allowing for a multitude of uses subject to council approval.

The Doonside suburb is 40 km west of Sydney’s CBD.

The centre is close to the junction of the M4 Western Motorway and the M7 Westlink. 

“The infrastructure planned for the Greater Western Sydney Region will result in a windfall for Doonside. With the release of designated development land throughout the North West corridor it will allow for further business and housing to be built for the area surrounding Doonside,” added Lerche.

Across the country, offers are due today on a fully leased neighbourhood shopping centre in Swan View that comes with an IGA store.

It is the first neighbourhood shopping centre to head to market this year, and includes a centre anchored by as 1204sq m IGA Supermarket, a Caltex Service Station, 10 specialty retail shops and four ATMs. 

The IGA Supermarket is on a 20-year lease, not expiring until 2028, and the total estimated net income exceeds $1.1 million per annum.

It is listed through Colliers International and Savills.
