Self Storage Investments

The result of the marketing of both of “Airport Parking and Storage” at Marcoola and “StorageOne Self-Storage” at Rockhampton has found there is solid interest from buyers all over Australia

We received around 50 enquiries on each campaign. This in itself was interesting in that the Rockhampton property, being in central Queensland was quite a remote from a major capital city. It didn’t seem to affect buyer enthusiasm though – which was just great.

I sold my first self storage property in Southport in 1996. Back then self-storage was a cottage industry. Little did I know at that stage that it would one day become a billion-dollar industry as it is today.

Since that time, I have sold many facilities nationwide. Over time I have seen many go and come into the industry and have managed to put together one of the most comprehensive list of buyers.

Sites for quick-service restaurants

Freehold, leasehold, land or building

Our client, a globally recognised quick-service restaurant chain, is planning an aggressive rollout of restaurants in new locations Australia-wide.
Locations are key here: our client is a high-profile, high-impact chain that would make a stunning anchor tenant for a new fast food or convenience development. They’re flexible as to whether the property is freehold, leasehold or requires development, and an existing family restaurant building that requires renovation is also a possibility.
The sites should be:

  • preferably in south-east Queensland, though they’ll consider other opportunities on their merits.
  • at least 2500 m2 in area, preferably on or near a main-road intersection.
  • in a strong residential catchment area.
  • preferably close to other fast food retailers, or family or quick-service restaurants.
  • preferably close to other traffic generators.

Strategic rollouts of this quality are rare: this client is a serious player with pressing expansion requirements and a profile that will drive traffic to a development and attract other quality tenants.
If you have a site you think might be suitable, please email or phone Rob on 0418 982 000 for an obligation-free chat.
There’s never been a better time to maximise the value of your site, whether by sale, development or lease to a globally recognised brand.

Sites for hotel operators– to buy or lease

Freehold, leasehold, land or building

Our client, a major Australian apartment hotel operator primarily focused on business travellers, is currently looking for new sites Australia-wide. Their preferred model is a partnership with a developer because it enables them to hit their strategic goal of delivering between eight and ten new properties a year, though they’ll also consider other options. The properties often include a conference room, business lounge, gymnasium and outdoor area.

This client is genuinely a win-win company who offer long leases, and they have a good track record of working with the same developer multiple times. They’ll also convert an existing building if necessary.

The sites should be:

  • city or Regional.
  • centrally located, close to a town/city CBD or in an emerging business location.
  • within an easy walk to public transport links.
  • prominent, with street frontage to a main road or highway.
  • located in a strong economic catchment area with access to cafes, restaurants and retail.
  • at least 2000 m2 in area, preferably on or near a main-road intersection.
  • with a height capacity preferably suitable for a 5-level building.

An apartment hotel provides an exciting ‘highest and best use’ for the right site: medium density, strong profile, long lease and in a growth market.

If you have a site you think might be suitable, please email or phone Rob on 0418 982 000 for an obligation-free chat. There’s never been a better time to maximise the value of your site, whether by sale, development or lease to a globally recognised brand.
