$24.5m Takapuna sale

A fully-leased, four-level office building on a 2587sq m site with future development potential at 519-521 Lake Rd in central Takapuna has sold for $24.5 million.

The property, featured in Bayleys’ Total Property portfolio, was sold at a 5.74 per cent yield and a land price of $9470 per sq m by Simon Aldridge, Michael Nees and David Huang of Bayleys North Shore Commercial.

The three upper levels are occupied by Australasia’s largest television and online marketing company, Brand Developers. It has a 12-year lease expiring in 2026 but the buyer has the option of taking possession of the Brand Developers premises on three years’ notice.

The property, across the road from the Shore City shopping mall, has 31.7m of street frontage on to Lake Rd — with an additional 20.1m of street frontage onto Huron St — and comes with 74 off-street car parks, 69 of which are in the building’s basement.
