Caloundra Centre Sale with Upside

22 September 2017

Brisbane based boutique Property Investment Managers, Marquette Properties, has purchased the Caloundra Village Shopping Centre for $18 million.

Marquette acquired the centre as a syndicated investment in a deal brokered by Savills Peter Tyson, Dustin Welch & Peter Capps and was struck at an initial yield of 6.89%.

Caloundra Village comprises an open convenience based neighbourhood shopping centre, situated adjacent to Caloundra’s CBD, on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.

The 3,009 square metre complex is anchored by a Princes’ Supa IGA supermarket, supported by 14 specialty shops, with traders including Post Office, Direct Chemist Outlet, Cruiseabout Travel and BWS.

The Centre occupies a 7,764 square metre site, with frontage to Ormuz Avenue, Bingera Terrace and Wyreema Terrace and features on-site parking for 112 vehicles.

The sale followed an expressions of interest campaign managed by Savills Retail Investments. Savills Peter Tyson said the campaign attracted strong interest reflecting the active retail market.

“Buyers were attracted to the strong trading performance and defensive convenience format.

“The Centre is popular with both local residents and seasonal holiday makers,” he said.

Mr Tyson also said that the Centre also features long term future redevelopment potential.

“As a large CBD land holding with three street frontages and a multi-story zoning, Council are in the process of implementing a new Caloundra CBD Renewal Project, which will lay the foundations for new development, with increased height and densities as well as investment in public infrastructure,” Mr Tyson said.
