Updated & corrected: Fight for Porana Rd site a feature as 7 sell at Bayleys auction, 9 now sold

Published 6 July 2016, updated 11 July 2016:
7 of the 14 properties in Bayleys’ third Auckland Total Property portfolio of the year were sold at auction on 6 July, and one was sold prior. A New Windsor property has been sold post-auction.

A feature of the day’s bidding was the battle between a Wairau Valley property’s neighbour & 3 developers (among other bidders) – the neighbour entering the fray late and outlasting his competition for the Porana Rd site (pictured). Although the transaction registers at a 3.35% yield on current monthly rent, site aggregation is always differently based.

The auction took an unusual turn for a Bayleys commercial auction after the first 3 properties were sold, as the next 4 were all passed in, followed by the Porana Rd battle.

The sale price on a Hillside Rd, Wairau Valley, property has been corrected.

Switch of syndicate owning New Plymouth building succeeds

A $5.775 million syndication offering for The Warehouse building at 67 Courtenay St, New Plymouth, has closed fully allocated.

Tim Lichtenstein & Charlie Oscroft, of Colliers International, marketed the scheme – 231 $25,000 parcels – for NZ Syndication Group Ltd (Peter Hutchison chairman, Mark French & Peter Waters).

The syndication company bought the building for $10.515 million, a discount to the $11 million market value assessed by Telfer Young (Taranaki) Ltd.

The vendor was another syndicate managed by Cambridge Asset Management Ltd (ex-St Laurence Assets Management Ltd). The term of that scheme had expired. Cambridge continues to manage the property under a sub-contract agreement.

The Warehouse has taken out a new 12-year lease on the 5865m² building, expiring in October 2026. Seismic capacity given as at least 135% of new building standard.

The current contract rent is $882,750/year + gst, the yield at market would be 8.025%, but 8.4% at the purchase price. Acquisition & offer costs make up the $500,000 difference between the 2 valuations.

Gross projected return for the new syndicate for the first 2 years is 8.5%. The syndicate has a $5.275 million loan from ASB Bank Ltd.

Cambridge Funds Management Ltd, owned by the family trusts of former St Laurence managing director Kevin Podmore, Sandra Lee & Jim McArley, acquired St Laurence Assets Management from the receiver of St Laurence Ltd in 2010 and changed its name to Cambridge.
Mr Podmore, now described as an analyst at Cambridge, filed for bankruptcy in January 2012 and was automatically discharged in January this year.
Cambridge manages over $100 million of commercial property for high net worth investors & property syndicates. Cambridge & NZ Syndication Group are based at the same office in Lower Hutt.
