Wairau Valley paint shop sells on 3.1% yield

If property auctions are losing their gloss as lending becomes tighter, Colliers’ auction in Auckland yesterday didn’t show too many signs of it.

The first property up, Resene Paints’ Wairau Valley outlet, was sold on a 3.1% yield and the second, a new warehouse in Wiri, went for a still strong 4.7%.

The other 2 properties up for auction were both vacant, one selling and the other passing in. The auction of the fifth property on the list, was deferred until next week.

Corrected: Argosy sells Dalgety Drive property to owner-occupier

Published 21 March 2017, yield detail added 22 March 2017
Argosy Property Ltd has disposed of the industrial property at 67 Dalgety Drive in Wiri for $6.85 million, which the company said was a 44% premium to its most recent book value.

The company did an interim revaluation of its portfolio last September, for the first time since 2009, and that valuation of $4.45 million put the passing yield at 8.38%. The sale price is 54% up on that. The building has a net lettable area of 3698m².

Chief executive Peter Mence said yesterday Argosy classified the property as non-core. The buyer is a private company which will operate from the site once the lease of the current tenant, RLA Polymers Ltd, expires on 31 March.

Changda launches 2 projects to build 1700 Auckland homes

A provincial Chinese construction company, Changda, formally launched 2 Auckland projects in the last days which should result in about 1700 homes being built over the next 5-8 years on sites designated as special housing areas.

Image above: The Sunny Heights project design screened at today’s launch ceremony, with a view over Orewa to the ocean, and the Whangaparaoa Peninsula to the south.

Changda is based in Weifang City, in Shandong Province between Beijing & Shanghai, but provincial doesn’t mean small. The ultimate parent company, Weifang Changda Construct Group, was founded in 1949 and is rated as one of the top 100 competitive construction enterprises in China. Group turnover last year was $2.1 billion, primarily in the construction sector.

Its projects include residential, commercial, industrial & developing infrastructure and it promotes itself as a leader in developing construction technology. It has 30 national patents and has won numerous national & Shandong science & technology awards. Internationally, the group has contracts to build in the United Arab Emirates, Israel, Guinea-Bissau, Thailand, Guyana & Hong Kong.

In Auckland, it has 2 companies – Changda International Development Ltd for its 1100-home development beside the Vodafone Events Centre in Manukau and Changda International NZ Ltd for the Sunny Heights project above Orewa.

Both project launches involved ceremonies beginning with local Maori input, and local input to the projects was emphasised in numerous ways.

I’ll have more detail on these 2 projects over the weekend.

Government approves health board’s 13.1ha for housing

The Government has approved an application by the Counties Manukau District Health Board to release 13.1ha of vacant land at the Manukau SuperClinic in Wiri for housing (marked in orange).

The 13.1ha the board declared surplus comprises 0.8ha in the north-east corner, on Great South Rd, and 12.3ha in the north-west corner, fronting Kerrs Rd, and providing 9.7ha of net buildable area. The whole site covers 48.6ha.

Health Minister Jonathan Coleman and Building & Housing Minister Nick Smith announced the Government’s approval yesterday.

Mr Coleman said: “It makes sense for district health boardss to sell land they don’t need for future use as it allows them to reinvest the proceeds into new or upgraded health facilities.

“The application comes as a result of the board developing its long-term investment plan, which looked at future population growth & forecast health service demand & subsequent need for land & capital investment.

“The plan confirmed that there is sufficient remaining land on the Manukau SuperClinic site to meet future health requirements with a focus on ambulatory, elective, rehabilitation & community health & wellbeing services. The vacant land would also not be suitable for a second acute hospital if the district needed it going forward.”

Dr Smith said the next step would be to finalise a fair market price for his ministry to secure the land from the board and adding it to the Government’s Crown land housing programme: “We will be exploring with Auckland iwi the opportunity to partner with them on the proposal to develop the area for housing.

“This new site adds to the other sites we have secured to date under the Crown land programme, which is just part of a wide range of reforms & initiatives to address Auckland’s housing challenges. We have increased the new house build rate in Auckland from 10/day to 40/day. This initiative will help maintain this momentum.”

District health board chair Lee Mathias said the ministers’ approval of the sale would enable a number of projects for the retained land: “This includes the potential to expand the surgical centre and provide radiology, rehabilitation & other community health services. Proceeds from the sale will be able to be used for the purchase, improvement or extension of public health service facilities.

“Disposal of this land will also enable housing development to occur in an area facing significant population growth & housing need. We see a strong link between good housing & healthy living, which is a central part of our healthy together strategy, and we want to do what we can to help the Manukau community.”
