DNZ Settles Bunnings Mt Roskill With Long Term Lease 9/03/2012

DNZ Property Fund Limited has settled on the $24.5 million purchase of the Bunnings warehouse at 2 Carr Road, Mt Roskill, Auckland.

The lease to Bunnings Limited, for the near new 11,600m² building located on a 2.7 hectare site, is for 15 years with annual contracted rental increases and 5 yearly market reviews. The property has extremely good car parking ratios, with two customer access points and a separate service entry, all on a high profile site.

DNZ already owns three Bunnings warehouses in Hamilton, Rotorua and Palmerston North, that when combined with this Mt Roskill purchase, makes Bunnings DNZ’s largest tenant* contributing approximately 10% of the Company’s portfolio contract rental.

Paul Duffy, Chief Executive of DNZ said “The covenant of a quality tenant such as Wesfarmers’ owned Bunnings and a 15 year lease term for one of their best performing warehouses, makes this property an excellent investment and addition to the DNZ portfolio.”

* DNZ’s top 10 tenants by contract rental: Bunnings, Progressive Enterprises (Countdown), NZ Government, Fletcher Building, Foodstuffs (PAK’nSAVE and New World), ASB, Meridian Energy, Mitre 10, Lion and Westpac.
