Colliers Essentials | Auckland Retail Report | Second Half 2021

The return of higher alert level restrictions in the second half of 2021 has disrupted retail sector trading results. However, not all retail sectors are experiencing the same impacts. Essentials services remain resilient and many businesses are structurally more sound, have more of an online presence and/or click ‘n collect services to engage with customers than in 2020. However, store closures and rising vacancies are projected, with the hospitality and entertainment sectors at the forefront. This will likely see overall strip retail vacancy elevated across Auckland for the short-term, which does provide some opportunities for retailers with a longer-term timeframe. Until resolving the lack of foot traffic in the CBD, higher vacancy rates will remain. Suburban markets may benefit from remote working, when Alert Levels allow. Bulk retail premises remain resilient showcased by sub-1% vacancy.

Colliers Essentials | Auckland Metro Office Report | First Half 2021

Metropolitan office vacancy rates continued their upward trend over the six months to March 2021 but at a slower rate than evident over the previous six months. Overall vacancy increased to 6.9% from 6.3%. A majority of the movement was recorded within the prime sector with vacancy moving from 3.3% to 4.9%. The change is partially driven by the relocation of companies to new CBD headquarters, a notable example being Genesis Energy which has moved from Central Park to 155 Fanshawe Street. Vacancy within the secondary sector remained little changed at 7.5% compared with 7.3% in September.

Colliers Essentials | Auckland Retail Report | First Half 2021

Vacancy rates across Auckland continued their upward trend over the second half of 2020 due, primarily, to movement with the strip retail sector. Overall vacancy reached 4.5% in December up from the 3.3% recorded a year earlier. Overall strip retail vacancies (incl. suburban strips) have increased to a record high of 8.5%, up almost 15,500 sqm compared to the same time last year.
