A former Auckland medical centre, which is for sale and now vacant at West Harbour, could interest owner-operators, commercial investors or developers.

Now vacant, the corner building at 40 Luckens Road is being marketed for sale by negotiation with an asking price of $1,050,000 by Meir Alfassi, commercial and industrial sales, and leasing agent with Harveys.

Alfassi says he is confident of strong interest in the property due to a ‘boom’ in west Auckland.

“As the population grows so does the need for services in the area.”

With a floor areas of about 187sq m, the property was built as a residence, then converted to office accommodation. It has concrete foundations; brick veneer/cedar weatherboard cladding; aluminium joinery and a standard profile iron roof.

“At the entrance, is a generous covered canopy area and a covered deck running along the southern, western and northern elevations. The internal layout encompasses a reception and waiting area, five consultant rooms, treatment room, staff room and male and female amenities.

“Finishing includes carpeted areas, textured plasterboard lined walls and plasterboard lined ceilings. There’s five wall mounted heat pumps, a central ventilation system and mounted ceiling rotary fans which take care of all air conditioning needs.”

Alfassi says the property offers “a very decent sized piece of land at 816sq m”. Rates are about $6800 per annum, while insurance is now set at $2240 annually.

“A good-sized open grassed area lies behind the building and there’s ample parking, with the land beyond the front of the building paved in concrete for vehicle manoeuvring. Twelve open carparks are marked out.

“With two road frontages, the property has both a vehicle entrance and exit.”

Alfassi says that such a substantial property and parcel of land presents many options. A buyer could occupy the building with their own business, re-lease it, re-configure it, or remove it to erect a new building.

“Under Auckland Council Unitary Plan the property is in a Mixed Housing Suburban zone with special discretionary commercial use; and in recent years that’s included medical or allied clinics.”
