A sizeable Mount Wellington warehouse property with excellent truck access is available for lease in arguably one of Auckland's most prestigious industrial locations.

Situated only 1km from the Southern Motorway interchange, 20 Vestey Drive provides excellent connectivity to Auckland’s CBD, airport and wider region.

The property comprises a 4760.1sq m industrial facility on a 6,898m site with 43 car parks and an 869sq m sealed yard.

The tidy building offers 2971.5sq m of warehousing along with associated office and showroom space.

Directors Hamish West and Andrew Hooper of Colliers International’s Industrial team have been exclusively appointed to lease 20 Vestey Drive. It will be available to occupy from November.

"This is a superb opportunity for a business to secure large and versatile premises in a premium location," says West.

"The Mount Wellington industrial precinct is very tightly held, with vacancy rates remaining stubbornly low.

"The latest Colliers International research survey shows the area has an industrial vacancy rate of only 3 percent.

"With so little stock available, the opportunity to secure such a substantial facility will be highly attractive to occupiers who value the proximity and connectivity that the Mount Wellington area enjoys."

Vestey Drive runs directly between the suburb’s key arterial routes of Great South Road and the Mount Wellington Highway.

"The property for lease is superbly located in a road front position in the middle of the Mount Wellington industrial precinct, providing great truck access," says Hooper.

"This is bolstered by traffic light-controlled and roundabout intersections at either end of Vestey Drive, which ensures freight can easily flow onto the main arterials.

"The Southern Motorway interchange is 1km away via the Mount Wellington Highway, providing access to the CBD and markets further north and south.

"Auckland Airport is only a 15-minute drive away via Great South Road and the neighbouring industrial areas of Otahuhu and Mangere."

Built in 1996, the facility features an expansive warehouse with a stud height of 6.4m at the knee, rising to 8m at the apex. Translucent roof panels provide good natural lighting.

The main warehouse is accessed via three motorised roller doors, sheltered by a large, cantilevered canopy of 385.1sq m.

Separately partitioned offices provide good natural lighting. There is 851.6sq m of office and showroom space on the ground floor along with 551.9sq m of office space on the first floor.

The large yard is suitable for 20' and 40' containers and has plenty of width for B-train trucks to drop and pick up containers.

The property is zoned Light Industry, which allows for a range of uses including manufacturing and distribution.

Mount Wellington is an established industrial location that is bounded by Penrose and Onehunga, which are also predominantly industrial.

The area has grown in popularity in recent years due to improved infrastructure, including the Southeastern

Highway arterial route, the development of the Pacific Rise Business Park, and the redevelopment of the Vestey Drive industrial area.

Surrounding developments comprises a mix of industrial premises of various ages and sizes.

Several modern design-build industrial units have been completed on previously vacant sites, along with trade retail developments.

The area has also significantly benefited from the popular Sylvia Park Shopping Centre, located off Mount Wellington Highway and Carbine Road.

Development of the centre is ongoing, with new dining and office precincts among the newest additions.

"The property for lease offers a chance for businesses to secure industrial space in this tightly held and continuously regenerating area," says West.
