AMP Capital Diversified Property Fund has sold Crossroads Homemaker Centre to Ashe Morgan for $140 million.

Located on the corner of Beech Road and Camden Valley Way, Casula, the 48,400 square metre-plus centre is home to 28 large format retailers, including anchor tenants Bunnings, The Good Guys, Freedom, Nick Scali and Fantastic Furniture. 

The centre was developed by AMP Capital after its acquisition of the 143,400 square metre site in 2002. 

CBRE's Nick Willis said the sale highlights continued demand for Sydney metropolitan retail assets. 

“Despite forecast headwinds in the retail sector, we are continuing to see an uplift in enquiry and bidder interest as investors identify relative value in the sector compared to other commercial real estate sectors,” said Willis.

“This was again evidenced with Crossroads Homemaker Centre, where we attracted strong and diverse investor interest from private and institutional groups, with 46% of the formal offers received being maiden capital into the large format retail sector. 

 “The Homemaker Centre’s strategic gateway position in Sydney’s south west growth corridor, coupled with its143,400 square metres underlying land area over four separate lots, provides flexibility to adapt the asset to meet the needs of the rapidly changing surrounds.” 

Jonathan Fox of Stonebridge added: “The sale result and volume of enquiry during the sale campaign was extremely strong. We received 13 expressions of interest and the highly competitive second round process highlighted the depth of demand for quality Sydney metropolitan retail assets.”
