Another commercial investment property on Victoria’s Surf Coast has sold.
The warehouse, in Breakwater (pictured top, left and bottom), four kilometres south-east of Geelong, is speculated to be trading for about $6 million reflecting a passing 6.5 per cent passing yield.
A local investment group acquired the property from Helen Popescu, the widow of Alex Popescu, the founder of Belmont Timber, two weeks prior to the close of an expressions of interest campaign.
It was within a 4978 square metre industrial property on this 1.2 hectare site that boat builder Sykes built vessels used by competitors to win Olympic gold medals in 1992, 2004 and 2008.
Sykes is committed to a lease at 65-67 Tucker Street ending in 2023, paying current annual rent of $394,628. It then has the option to renew for five years.
Last month we reported Melbourne-based investor IP Generation paid more than $15 million for a modern asset purpose-built for Quiksilver. Leased until 2021 to the surf brand, this two hectare site at 27 Baines Crescent offered redevelopment potential.
