Property fund manager Quintessential Equity has sold an industrial facility in Dandenong South to a private investor for $7.2 million.
The property is located at 269-271 Frankston-Dandenong Road on the corner of Frankston-Dandenong Road and Cojo Place, approximately 35 kilometres south-east of the Melbourne CBD.
The 2.43 hectare site has a total building area of approximately 7,340sqm. The Dandenong South property has recently undergone significant redevelopment with a new workshop recently constructed on behalf of sole tenant, Tycab Australia Pty Ltd, a national manufacturing company.
A new 14-year lease agreement was also secured with Tycab Australia in March 2015 which will see the company extend its stay at the Dandenong South facility until at least 2029.
Quintessential Equity Head of Property Russell Bullen said the combination of a prime location, a new lease agreement with a high quality tenant and the availability of surplus land for additional development ensured solid market interest.

"We had a strong collaborative relationship with our tenant which ensured we were able to deliver on their property expansion requirements and deliver a seamless accommodation solution for them. The newly completed workshop adds a different element and dynamic to the site and was an important factor in securing a new long term lease agreement with Tycab Australia.”
The sale was managed by Colliers International and Savills who worked as conjunctional agents.
Colliers International Director Justin Fried said he was not surprised by the level of interest the property attracted or the sale result it achieved.
“This property is securely leased for the next 14 years to a high quality tenant and is situated adjoining a fully developed industrial estate on the Frankston-Dandenong Road, one of Melbourne’s major arterials. With scope for further on-site development on surplus land, we were not surprised that the industrial facility proved to be an attractive proposition for astute buyers.”
Savills Industrial Divisional Director Ben Hegerty said the property had attracted significant interest from investors in search of a quality, long term investment.
“This well situated, tenanted property appealed to a range of investors in search of a high quality opportunity in what is now a tight investment market. Properties that tick all the investment boxes are very much at a premium and the level of investor interest generated by this sale reflects that fact.”
