JLL Logistics and Industrial Senior Director, Jeremy Barnett, highlights the versatility of the site as a key drawcard to this property.

“The sizeable office and warehouse space, logistics access, and large, secure yard combine to create the ultimate flexible solution for a business seeking a prime Auckland location,” says Barnett. “The yard in particular is currently used as additional storage and container access, and also allows for further off-street parking for occupiers or visitors to the property.”

Beyond the versatility of 278 Church Street, JLL Logistics and Industrial Associate Director, Danny Guise, points to the current established tenant as an additional feature for investors.

“The property is currently tenanted by Ultimate Solutions, a nationwide provider of specialised equipment for surface protection, PVC hoardings, tapes, packaging, and dust and noise control,” says Guise. “The tenant is established and reputable, adding stability to the investment for the astute buyer, returning $280,000 plus GST per annum.”
