With development land that is suitable for commercial activity in short supply across the wider Auckland region, a large-scale site in Pukekohe will pique the interest of buyers looking to acquire land in a rapidly growing location.
301 Buckland Road, Pukekohe is a 43,602sq m landholding that is zoned Business – General Business Zone under the Auckland Unitary Plan. The property is being sold as one lot.
The Business – General Business Zone provides for business activities from light industrial to limited office, large format retail, and trade suppliers, meaning there are considerable options on offer for prospective purchasers.
The prominent triangular site offers 383m of frontage to Buckland Road. The site is the only one of its kind available in Pukekohe and will draw the attention of investors, developers, or owner-occupiers given the extensive potential on offer.
Pukekohe, which is located approximately 50km from Auckland’s CBD, is only 10 minutes from State Highway 1, while the State Highway 22 on-ramp in Drury can be reached in seven minutes.
The subject site is well connected to the surrounding roading network and is only a few minutes south of the centre of Pukekohe.
Buckland Road is an extension of Manukau Road, a major transport corridor in and out of Pukekohe. Manukau Road is seen as the main retail and commercial hub of the area and contains a mix of light industrial and business mixed-use properties connecting the Pukekohe town centre with Pukekohe Park.
The 43,602sq m landholding is being sold as one lot and is General Business-zoned.
Vincent, Director of Industrial at Colliers, says the scarcity of an opportunity such as this one means interested parties should take note.
“It is incredibly rare to see a development site of this scale being presented to the market for sale in Pukekohe. This is the only commercial-zoned land that is available for sale in the area,” Vincent says.
“With the opportunity to utilise the land for such a vast array of purposes from large format retail through to light industrial, there is a major opportunity on-hand for the new owner to create a noteworthy development that will provide a weighty contribution to the future of Pukekohe.”
Auckland Council projects the population of Pukekohe will grow to over 50,000 people in the next 20 years and continued investment from local agencies is contributing to the growth and revitalisation of the area.
In July last year the Franklin Local Board endorsed Eke Panuku Development Auckland’s Unlock Pukekohe Supporting Masterplan, praising the plan that will guide council-led development that maintains the town’s character and heritage.
The site is the only commercially-zoned land available in the area.
Franklin, Director of Industrial at Colliers, says improved infrastructure in Pukekohe is adding to the area’s accessibility and there’s more to look forward to.
“Notable roading projects have been completed in Pukekohe while the electrification of the train line to the town will provide further improvements for commuters and that project is due for completion next year,” Franklin says.
“There are also a number of new residential subdivisions and developments in Pukekohe that have proven popular with people moving to the area as it continues to grow and flourish.”
Marsh, Investment Sales Broker at Colliers, says the continued population growth of Pukekohe and the surrounding areas such as Takanini, Ōpāheke, Drury, and Paerata will create further need for commercial services as demand rises.
“Now is the opportunity for a buyer to secure this large-scale site and they can add their own touches to one of Auckland’s key growth areas that is continuing to expand at pace,” Marsh says.
“We encourage all interested parties to contact us immediately to explore their options so they can make the most of this significant and unique purchasing opportunity.”
