Property development and investment group Tipalea Partners has splashed $11.8 million on an industrial property in Port Botany, amidst structural change in South Sydney, which will see 20% of the current industrial market removed.


"South Sydney remains such a strategically important industrial market in Sydney and it's undergoing massive structural change,” says Scott Spanton managing director of Tipalea Partners.

“The most significant change is that around 1,000,000 square metres of industrial land and buildings is earmarked for residential and commercial redevelopment over the next five years. This will effectively remove 20% of the current industrial market," says Spanton.

Tipalea Partners bought a 6,600-square-metre six unit industrial property on Beauchamp Road with an 8.1% indicative rental yield.


"We expect strong rental and capital growth potential will be created by the ongoing displacement of industrial tenants as the gentrification of South Sydney continues between now and 2020.

“It's the perfect storm of investment conditions, critical infrastructure assets are being expanded, demand for space is increasing but supply is shrinking,” says Spanton.

The site is fully leased with expiries ranging from 2014 to 2018.
