Crown Group adds 2 more properties to Auckland portfolio

John Copson’s Crown Group has bought 2 more large strategic Auckland commercial properties on Greenlane’s Golden Mile and on the Albany Village Highway.

Crown bought the property of just under 9000m² at 404-444 Great South Rd, Greenlane, for $25.5 million. It’s tenanted by Auckland Vehicles Ltd, which operates the Auckland Hyundai & Auckland Isuzu dealerships, together with adjacent dwellings.

A second property at 12 Oteha Valley Rd Extension, Albany, bought days later, has added 8000m² to the 10,000m² Crown already owns next to the site on Dairy Flat Highway.

Crown Group’s property general manager, Chad Cathcart, said in a release today the properties were bought as part of an allocation of $200 million approved by Copson Holdings to Crown to acquire well located New Zealand commercial property with strategic upside: “Both properties are fully leased and provide a range of future potential uses under the Auckland unitary plan.

“These acquisitions add to the string of property purchases the group made in 2017, which included the purchase of a further hospitality precinct at 136-142 Hurstmere Rd, Takapuna, for $25 million, to add to Crown’s existing portfolio of Takapuna landholdings.”

Focus on Northcote in push for affordable home development

Government-owned company HLC (2017) Ltd – the former Hobsonville Land Co Ltd – is pushing hard to increase interest in 5 development superlots at Northcote, in keeping with the new government’s desire to get 100,000 “affordable” homes built over the next 10 years, half in Auckland.

Bayleys Real Estate launched an expressions of interest campaign late last year, seeking private sector partners to develop the 1.58ha in the 5 superlots.

Under Labour’s KiwiBuild policy, The Government wants to get 100,000 affordable homes built within 10 years, half of them in Auckland.

HLC has supervised development at Hobsonville Point, in West Auckland, where over 1000 houses have been built in 5 years. On completion, that 167ha masterplanned development will have 4500 houses & over 10,000 residents.

At Northcote, the focus in stage 1 of redevelopment of the state housing block will result in 298 old state houses being replaced by 400 new ones.

For stage 2, HLC, a subsidiary of Housing NZ Corp, appointed Bayleys to release the 5 superlots, which range in size from 2572-3665m². Registrations of interest close on Friday 16 February.

HLC chief executive Chris Aiken said a shortlist of potential home builder partners would be identified by March and the final selection made in April.

55% of the potential 165 homes in the 5 superlots have to be “affordable”, defined as a maximum price of $600,000 for a terraced home, $500,000 for apartments.

On completion, the whole project will provide about 1200 new homes near the Northcote town centre over a 6-year period.

Bush Rd light industrial units passed in

The auction of 2 light industrial units at Albany by NAI Harcourts yesterday presented bidders with a quandary, as each unit was offered separately.

What if you bought one, wanted both but were outbid on the second?

Auctioneer Andrew North said prospective buyers had presented various scenarios but the auction went ahead with 2 separate offerings. Neither attracted quite the bidding the vendor wanted, and Mr North’s third option of offering them together resulted, again, in him doing the bidding – this time stopping well short of the combined total of the previous vendor bid on one & actual bid on the other.
