Coles has placed its newly developed Coburg North Village shopping centre — anchored by a flagship Coles Supermarket — in Melbourne, on the market through Savills.

The 6,283 square metre GLA centre, on the corner of Gaffney and Sussex streets, will by sold by expressions of interest closing July 13.

The deal includes a new 15-year lease to Coles and Liquorland with the property earning an estimated $1.9 million per annum.

According to marketing agents Pat De Maria, Tom Forrest and Steven Lerche, the complex is expected to attract strong local and off-shore interest due to the appeal of retail investments.

Retail property transactions are currently running at $7 billion to $8 billion a year, bolstered by off-shore and institutional investors and compressed yields, according to Savills’ research. 

“The limited availability to purchase quality retail investments, and the high level of investment demand has intensified competition for available assets,’’ De Maria said.

The centre opened in August 2015 and has a flagship full-line ‘market style’ Coles Supermarket and Liquorland of 4,175 square metres. 

There are 15 other retailers, including a medical centre and pharmacy.

Forrest said the centre benefitted from a large main trade area accommodating more than 46,000 residents and was forecast to grow to 52,050 by 2026.
