BlackRock has appointed CB Richard Ellis and Jones Lang LaSalle as the joint exclusive selling agents for the 883 Whitehorse Road complex, which is fully occupied by the Victorian Department of Human Services. CBRE’s Andrew Dawkins and Justin Clarkson together with JLL’s Robert Anderson and James Kaufman will steer the Expressions of Interest campaign, closing October 8, 2009. Mr Dawkins said the property’s prime suburban location and the strength of the government tenancy covenant were expected to drive significant interest in the upcoming sale campaign. “The government has been a longstanding tenant in the building, having occupied the property for more than 10 years,” Mr Dawkins said. “The strength of the tenancy covenant combined with the building’s high profile location will be significant drawcards for the growing number of private investors and syndicators seeking well positioned commercial property investment opportunities.” The Department of Human Resources last year signed a new 10+5 year lease over the building, which has a total net lettable area of circa 7,237 square metres. The lease provides for an annual net rental of $1,982,264 and there is built-in rental growth from 4% fixed reviews.
  • 2. 15 September 2009 JLL’s Mr James Kaufman said the building also offered good depreciation benefits, which had been enhanced following a significant refurbishment program. “The recent refurbishment has been designed to achieve a 4.5 star ABGR rating and will ensure that future capital expenditure requirements are limited,” Mr Kaufman said. The building is well serviced by public transport and also offers significant parking, with 311 on-site car spaces. CBRE’s Justin Clarkson said the property’s prime Box Hill location was expected to be another drawcard for prospective purchasers, with the outer eastern suburb continuing to benefit from low vacancy rates and limited new supply.
