A Melbourne based investor has paid $6.5 million on a 6.3% yield for a Campbellfield industrial facility with Hume Highway frontage.

Dawkins Occhiuto directors, Chris Jones and Walter Occhiuto brokered the deal.  

Located a short distance from the Metropolitan Ring Road, the 1608 Hume Highway property comprises a total building area of 4,949 square metres covering only 25% of the 16,550 square metre site.

It is leased to multinational tenant, Komatsu, on a seven year term expiring August 2020, at a current passing net rental of circa $411,000 per annum. 

Mr Jones said the Expressions of Interest campaign drew a strong field of local, interstate and off-shore buyers based on the property’s exceptional investment credentials.  

He said, “this property offered an excellent location and exposure right on the highway, a secure lease to a blue chip tenant, buildings and hardstand in very good condition and of high utility, high underlying land value, and significant future development upside with a low site coverage. It was hard to beat." 

“We are seeing strong yield compression, particularly for the best located, modern, industrial facilities with secure lease covenants, and that is likely to continue while industrial yields remain comparatively attractive vis-à-vis retail and office property, and while alternative assets classes are offering lower and/or more volatile return prospects,’’ Mr Jones added. 

The vendor was an interstate syndicator.
