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.

Features: 330m² unit – warehouse 169m², office/showroom 143m², canopy 17m², occupied by BFT Automotive NZ Ltd
Rent: $67,000/year net + gst; combined outgoings for both units $22,619/year + gst paid by tenants

Agents: Dave Lane & Marty van Barneveld

224 Bush Rd, unit B:
Features: 330m² unit – warehouse 169m², office/showroom 143m², canopy 17m²; occupied by Citywide Tec Ltd
