A four-level Brisbane CBD complex – on 816 sqm – was the priciest, achieving $10.15m.
The deals come a week after Assembly and Harrington paid $42.95m for a portfolio of six child minding assets – all in Sydney’s north west.
Eleven childcare centres collect $59.6m
The only New South Wales asset – Lakeside Creative Minds ELC & Preschool at 89 Benjamin Terrace in Newcastle’s Kelso – traded at the lowest net return – 4.67 per cent (story continues below).
It was one of four childcare asset deals Cushman & Wakefield were responsible for – the others are at Parkes (ACT), and in Queensland, in Brisbane’s Taigum and the Gold Coast (Coomera).
Burgess Rawson offloaded four as part of a bulk auction event last week – two of these were in Victoria including 57-59 Stud Rd, Dandenong, which achieved $7.63m, and 24 Glenelg Drive in Bendigo’s Maiden Gully ($3.95m).
