A large format retail centre, anchored by JB Hi-Fi and TK Maxx in south-western Brisbane is being listed.

The Zone Oxley centre also has five mini majors and two supporting tenancies. It is fully leased to leading retailers including JB Hi-Fi (1,958sqm), TK Maxx (1,980sqm), RT Edwards, Eureka Street Furniture, Sleepy’s, School Locker, Pet Stock and Subway. 

The majority of the tenants are on their second lease terms, highlighting the popularity of the shopping centre. 

The Zone Oxley is located within a prime, metro-Brisbane large format retail precinct, which includes The Good Guys, Bunnings Warehouse, Harvey Norman, Officeworks, Super Amart Furniture, Super Cheap Auto and First Choice Liquor. 

In total, the Oxley large format precinct has more than 35,000 sqm of gross lettable area.

The site is being sold through an expressions of interest campaign closing September 7.

It is being marketed by JLL’s Jacob Swan and Sam Hatcher.  

“Large-format retail market fundamentals have been well-supported by a strong rebound in household goods spending and very limited supply of floorspace in recent years,” said Hatcher.

“Household goods spending is growing at 3.8% per annum in Queensland as at May, which is the second strongest state, nationally. The high level of housing construction activity will drive household goods spending over the short to medium-term, underpinning retailer demand for Large-Format Retail space.”

He said Large-Format Retail has been re-rated in 2016 and 2017, reflecting the improvement in leasing conditions and the attractive yield spread relative to more traditional shopping centres – such as sub-regional shopping and neighbourhood.

“Only $475 million of retail assets have transacted in Queensland in 2017 year-to-date, compared with $2.1 billion in 2016. The slowdown in transaction activity reflects the limited number of investment opportunities in the first half of the year.” 

In June, a neighbourhood centre anchored by Woolworths and Aldi in Brisbane’s northern suburb of Warner was listed. MarketPlace Warner is a ‘best in class’ shopping centre, with the Woolworths supermarket believed to be one of the best performing Woolworths in Queensland by MAT, with turnover well above Urbis benchmarks for a double supermarket anchored shopping centre.
