The Maroondah Village Shopping Centre in Melbourne’s north-east has been listed for sale, representing one of the first Victorian neighbourhood shopping centres to be offered for sale in 2018.

The single level Croydon North neighbourhood shopping centre is anchored by a strongly trading Coles Supermarket.

There are 10 specialty retailers, spanning a site area of 9,707 square metres which includes 2,000 square metres of surplus land and 113 at grade car parks.

The centre is 98% leased with an annual net income of $850,000.

Located 30 kilometres north-east of the Melbourne CBD, the centre benefits from a rapidly rising population which is expected to see more than 20% growth by 2036.

"The very strong Asian demographic - a population now exceeding 20% of the region’s total population - has also seen the median house price rise to more than $1 million and a retail catchment with an increasing level of disposable income," according to CBRE agent Mark Wizel.

The zoning allows for more intensive mixed use development.

He said the current owners had purchased the centre with the idea of acquiring neighbouring sites to allow for future expansion of the Coles Supermarket or for a redevelopment of the entire property.

The owners successfully acquired those properties and they are now being offered with the existing shopping centre for sale.

"The opportunity for value add investors to acquire a well leased centre like this one at a price point of under $20 million is something very rare in any metropolitan location not only in Victoria but along the entire eastern seaboard,’’ Wizel said.

The offering, which follows the recent on-market campaign of the Stockland owned Highlands Shopping Centre, sees offers closing March 29.
