Versatile warehouse and yard in Taupō’s premier industrial precinct
A versatile warehouse and yard in Taupō’s premier heavy industrial precinct is for sale with vacant possession, making it ideal for owner-occupiers or add-value investors.
Colliers International is marketing the 7,802sq m freehold property at 681 Rakaunui Road, Taupō, for sale by negotiation.
Broker Tom Lyons says the property is superbly located close to both of the region’s major state highways and the Taupō urban area.
“Situated in the heart of Taupō’s premier heavy industrial precinct, 681 Rakaunui Road comprises two main industrial buildings and a secure gravel yard.
“The vendor has owned the property since the early 1980s, using it as the base for his wood processing business.
“He sold his business in February 2017 to the current tenant, who is now vacating the property.
“This is an ideal opportunity for an owner-occupier to take vacant possession of a well-located industrial property with low site coverage and future redevelopment potential.”
The property has two main buildings, with a total floor area of 1,294sq m.
Most of the construction was carried out in the 1990s, with some additions done in the past few years.
The main workshop includes a staff amenity area with toilets, lunch rooms and an office, while the second warehouse is suitable for storage.
Both buildings have three-phase power, water and air compressors.
A sawdust collector located between the two buildings can be included in the sale price should a purchaser need it.
Lyons says the property is close to major roads, including State Highway 1 and State Highway 5, and is located among a multitude of transport and logging businesses.
“Tenants in the area include agribusiness Ravensdown, transport companies Total Transport and McLeod, civil contractors Higgins, forklift specialists AB Equipment, and timber businesses Taupo Firewood Supplies and Self Loader Logging.”
The property is zoned Centennial Industrial Environments, a heavy industrial zone that is geared towards Taupō’s economic growth over the next 20 years.
The area, to the east of central Taupō, is well connected with the existing urban area.
