Brisbane: Five storey ‘Gabba’ property sells for $3.7 million in JLL deal

August 10, 2020

QUEENSLAND, 10 August 2020 – JLL Metro Sales and Investments QLD Director, Elliott O’Shea and Senior Executive, Andrew Havig have negotiated the sale of a five storey office building at 40 Nile Street in Brisbane’s Woolloongabba for $3,700,000.

The sale represents an initial yield of 6.50%.

On a total site area of 607sqm in Woolloongabba, on the city’s southern fringe, 40 Nile Street has an NLA of 877sqm. The property features a five storey office building with car parking for six vehicles and generates a passing net income of $240,672 annually.

“After a competitive on-market Expressions of Interest process on behalf of the vendor, a local private owner, where we fielded 42 enquiries and six bids, the property was sold to a local private investor,” said Mr Havig.

He said the property was well located within one of Brisbane’s most desirable near-city locations.

“40 Nile Street in Woolloongabba represents a quality investment, underpinned by a brand new six-year triple net lease (from settlement) to leading film and television post-production company, The Post Lounge, with a further five-year option.”

He said the successful purchaser was drawn to the property because of its proximity to the Brisbane CBD, Cross River Rail project and Logan Road dining precinct as well as its long-term tenure and quality construction.

“The opportunity to acquire a secure leased investment with future development upside within 350m of the $5.3bn Cross River Rail (Woolloongabba Station Precinct) proved a strong attraction,” said Mr Havig.
