Austin Engineering’s Kewdale facility up for grabs

The home of ASX-listed Austin Engineering in Perth’s Kewdale Industrial Precinct has come to market with expectations of $14 million to $15 million.

The 3.2-hectare site with 6,622 square metres of office/workshop space at 100 Chisholm Crescent is undergoing extensive upgrades to modernise the facility.

Savills Australia’s James Condon has been appointed to sell the property in conjunction with Knight Frank’s Jarrad Grierson via a four-week campaign.

With Austin Engineering signing a new eight-year lease for the premises, Condon said investors were likely to compete for the opportunity to own the refurbished asset.

“With more than $1 million in annual rental income and fixed rental increases, 100 Chisholm Crescent will be very well received by the Perth investor market,” he said.

The tenant has been in the area for more than 20 years and has just committed to an extension to the lease of their second site nearby at 2 Draper Place, Kewdale, for another five years, which they have occupied for more than 10 years.

Condon said Austin Engineering’s signing of the two new leases showed commitment to the ongoing evolution of the Kewdale Industrial Precinct.

Chisholm Crescent is within close proximity of the Kewdale intermodal facility and the Perth International Airport, about 12 kilometres from the CBD. 

The high-quality office/workshop has a heavy-duty support structure to cater for a variety of gantry cranes, including two 25-tonne, three 16-tonne and one 10-tonne crane. 

The facility also includes an ancillary workshop of 890 square metres.
