Spark Building D price settles at 7% yield

The price Shanghai Pengxin (Zhaobai Jiang) has paid for Spark City Building D (pictured) yoyo-ed for months before settling at a 7% yield.

Development company Mansons TCLM Ltd originally sold Building D last November at a 7.25% yield on the $4.92 million/year rent, pricing the deal at $67.86 million. However, real estate agency Bayleys put the building back on the market again briefly in March with a price tag of $72.88 million on it, representing a 6.75% yield, before the sale to Pengxin was confirmed at $70.15 million and a yield of 7% flat.

When the Overseas Investment Office released its decision consenting to Pengxin subsidiary Pengxin Holdings (HK) Co Ltd’s application to buy the building in March, the office withheld the consideration.

Building D was originally sold along with buildings A & B in a price range from just under $50 million to just under $70 million. The 2 buildings with leases to Spark, buildings A & D, both sold at 7.25% yields while building B, with a shorter lease to TVNZ, sold at an 8.5% yield. Augusta Funds Management Ltd bought the fourth building, C, last April for $65.2 million and has syndicated it.

2 other cbd sales Bayleys agents have completed are the long-vacant development site at 85 Customs St, to another Chinese developer, and a vacant showroom at Chancery.

Chancery carpark sold

Published 15 July 2011

The 1093-space carpark under the Chancery development in central Auckland has been sold for $38.5 million to an as-yet-undisclosed buyer.

The 8 parking floors were built under what was to have been NZ Insurance Ltd’s triple-tower headquarters site between Freyberg Square & Albert Park. That project stopped after the 1987 sharemarket crash with only the parking completed.

Richard Kroon & Brian Mead developed the $40 million first stage of Chancery – the office, retail & café development round a courtyard on the bottom part of the 9413m² site – in 2000, but didn’t proceed with further development despite comprehensive plans being drawn up.

The main Chancery carpark contains 865 spaces on 2 basement floors and 6 levels rising up to Bankside St, behind the Northern Club. The other 228 spaces, a mixture of short-term & permanent parking, are I the 2-level basement beneath the Chancery retail development.

Parking revenue for the March 2011 year was estimated at $3.6 million, net $2.7 million plus gst, giving a 7.1% yield on the sale price.
