Retail property syndicator APiL has added to its Perth portfolio, buying bulky goods precinct Joondalup Gate for $57.8 million.
Former CBRE director Andrew Woodley-Page, who is set to join Knight Frank Australia, brokered the deal on behalf of the vendor, private property syndicate Joondalup Gate Pty Ltd, which first ran a campaign to sell the property in October 2015.
The sale price achieved an initial yield of 7.87 per cent, and an internal rate of return of 9 per cent.
Joondalup Gate comprises 24,533 square metres of large format retail, across seven buildings incorporating 32 tenancies, which are 89 per cent leased with a weighted remaining lease term of 3.93 years.
Major tenants include Dan Murphy's, BCF, Ray's Outdoors and Freedom Furniture, the site also includes a Coles Express service station and a Geowash car wash, and the land area totals 64,115sqm.
It is Western Australia's’s 19th-largest shopping centre, according to the BNiQ Book of Lists.
APiL remains the state’s 11th-largest shopping centre owner, ranked by total square metres of retail space, just behind Stockland at ninth, which owns around 69,000sqm of retail space in its shopping centres.
