Elanor Investor Group (ASX: ENN) announced today the establishment of the new managed fund, the Stirling Street Syndicate. The fund has acquired a commercial office property in Perth for $24 million. This off-market transaction is the Group’s second acquisition in the Perth Market, following the $125.25 million acquisition of the WorkZone West asset in June 2018.
The property is a high-quality, two-level, modern office building. This property was completely redeveloped in 2009, with a total net lettable area of 6,657 square meters. The Property’s current zoning allows for 24,340 sqm of developable gross floor area, with potential for up to 36,500 sqm. The current zoning allows for a broad scope of uses including commercial, retail and residential.
ENN CEO, Glenn Willis believes that this deal provides their capital partners an attractive entry point reflecting an underlying land value at cyclically low rent levels. The CEO is seeing the Perth market recovering. He believes that this investment provides significant upside potential to aid income and capital value for investors in the Syndicate.
The company also launched $100 million Belconnen Market Revitalisation and the announcement of the same was published on 28th February 2019. The company received approval from the government for the first stage of its planned revitalisation of Canberra’s Belconnen for an overlay of $100 million.
Stage one of the projects is expected to be completed in late 2019. It comprises 3,750 sqm of strip retail, suited to retailers between 200 sqm and 1,000 sqm in size.
The CEO, Glenn Willis highlighted that there has already been very strong interest from “mini-majors” specialty retailers and service providers in the Stage One offering, which will complement the current retail precinct.
ENN has lodged its stage two development application which would replace with a spacious new 5,500 sqm market hall. This hall would have a facility for undercover parking for 146 cars.
The management stated that stage two represents a 30% increase in the market hall’s footprint. The new project would allow for the introduction of food catering outlets, and new speciality food retailers to complement Belconnen Markets existing fresh food offering.
