Industrial land prices along Brisbane's Trade Coast have recorded their second quarterly increase according to the Brisbane industrial briefing for April from Savills.

Savills recorded around $1.133 billion worth of industrial property transactions under $2 million in the 12 months to March 2016, an increase from the $1.019 billion recorded in the previous year, and up on the five year average of $779 million.

According to the report private investors are also starting to emerge within the sub $2 million price range  - a sure a sign that confidence is beginning to return to the market. 

"Buyers within the $2 million to ten million dollar price range remain the most active with 75 percent of industrial sales for the year ending March 2016," Savills reported.

"Englobo land sales continue to dwindle within the Brisbane metropolitan area due to a lack of availability within the key industrial precincts. A number of industrial properties sold over the year however had subsidiary land available for further development, such as the sale of 1-5 Bishop Dr, Fisherman Island which reportedly included an additional three hectares of land suitable for further industrial accommodation.

"The highlight of the year remains the $1.073 billion purchase of the GIC portfolio by Singapore based Ascendas. The portfolio included assets from Victoria, New South Wales and Brisbane. There were seven Brisbane properties included in the deal amounting to $317.2 million."
