Prime leasing opportunity in growing Orewa

NZ_AucklandCBD_Communications_Prime leasing opportunity in growing Orewa

Two highly functional buildings are available for lease in a well-known regional commercial centre in Orewa on Auckland’s Hibiscus Coast.

The properties offer prospective tenants incredible flexibility and the opportunity to secure accommodation in a highly desirable position, nestled in park-like grounds just off the motorway.

Known as the Orewa Campus, the buildings sit on 1.9ha of open green spaces at 50 Centreway Drive and are only a short walk from Orewa Beach and the town centre.

Built in the late 2000s, the Tasman Building offers floor plates of 1,300sq m over three levels and the floors offer all-round natural light with generous on-site parking.

There is an option to take refurbished space in the two-level Pacific Building, which will provide a cost-effective option to suit a variety of users that are searching for new accommodation, especially those requiring multiple entrances and full flexibility of space such as medical facilities or an IT campus.

Orewa is just north of the base of the Whangaparāoa Peninsula and 40km north of central Auckland. It is a popular holiday and day-trip destination with an expanding local population, growing at a rapid rate as Auckland’s growth spreads out to all its boundaries.

The Northern Motorway, part of State Highway 1, passes just inland of Orewa and extends through the twin Johnstones Hill Tunnels near Puhoi offering convenient access for visitors and occupants.

Colliers Brokers Jimmy O’Brien, Janet Marshall, and Kerry Cook have been appointed to take the properties to market and are seeking expressions of interest from prospective tenants.

The current tenant of the properties will be vacating the building in the next 24 months, creating opportunities for future occupants to strategically plan their next moves.

O’Brien, Director at Colliers Auckland North, says the scale of the buildings provides tremendous flexibility and they will suit a wide range of tenants.

“Spaces of between 300sq m to 2,000sq m will be available and the current landlord will work closely with future occupants to create a space that will suit their demands as the existing tenant begins their transition to a new site,” O’Brien says.

“Across both buildings there are a range of options that could be explored, and these buildings would suit a wide array of occupants, including government departments, IT, retail, and hospitality through to call centres.”

The property provides low site coverage and Marshall, Director of Commercial Sales and Leasing at Colliers, says this is where there could be exciting new opportunities for potential occupants.

“The landlord has the rare opportunity to develop further buildings on the property meaning bespoke demands could be catered for,” Marshall says.

“Future new builds could be created in line with the individual requirements of new tenants and could be shaped to meet their demands around total net lettable floor area, sustainability, design and materials, and parking.”

“Any new building would require 12 months of construction and projects could get underway in 2024 giving prospective tenants the opportunity to plan for a productive future.”

Cook, Commercial Sales and Leasing Broker at Colliers, says the surrounding area makes for a highly appealing location for a workplace.

“Existing walking tracks surround the Orewa Campus offering staff unique access to attractive amenities with favourable proximity to the town centre and Orewa Beach,” Cook says.

“Auckland’s urban sprawl north has contributed to notable population growth in the area, which has coincided with further economic investment.”

“Considering this outstanding setting has options to occupy quickly or in the mid-term future, we expect there will be significant interest in this prominent site and encourage all interested parties to do their due diligence and contact us immediately.”
