An industrial development site in a proven Mangere location is on the market through sole agents Colliers International.

The 2136sq m freehold site on sought-after Mahunga Drive is being marketed by Dwayne Warby and Brad Johnston for sale by deadline private treaty, closing April 27.

Warby says the site offers investors and owner-occupiers a rare opportunity to develop a near-vacant landholding in an established industrial precinct with excellent transport links.

“It’s uncommon for developable land in tightly held Mangere to come onto the market, so the potential here is huge,” he says.

“This is a site close to everything. Mahunga Drive is exceptionally well located within a 13km radius of the CBD, Auckland International Airport, and two ports.

“It’s close to major transport links, including the Southwestern motorway only 800m away, and is already benefiting from major infrastructure upgrades in the area.”

Warby says vehicle access to the functional rectangular site is via the road and a right of way on a neighbouring property.

“This access to the site will be very attractive to a range of industrial occupiers looking for an efficient site design.”

The property is near-vacant aside from some trees and small low-stud units, which Warby says should not prove challenging to remove.

“Developers could easily add value by constructing a modern, generic industrial building on the site,” he says.

“This is also an opportunity for an owner-occupier to custom-build premises to their exacting specifications.”

Johnston says Mahunga Drive is perfectly located within one of Auckland’s most established premium industrial precincts.

The site is only 800m from the Southwestern motorway (State Highway 20), providing easy access to the Southern Motorway (SH1) some 12km away.

With the completion of the Waterview Connection due in coming months, SH20 will also soon provide access to the Northwestern Motorway (SH16).

“Mangere is poised to be in the centre of the Western Ring Route, giving it excellent transport links to the south and north of the region and beyond via SH1 and SH16,” says Johnston.

“Major road infrastructure completions in the area in recent years have already resulted in the precinct becoming a prime location for industrial users, and the Waterview Connection will make it even more desirable.”

Johnston says the property is only 6km from Metroport, 7.5km from the airport, 11km from the Wiri Inland Port, and 13km from the Auckland CBD.

The site is zoned for light industry, which allows for a range of industrial activities that do not generate excess noise, odour or dust.

The zone is designed to enable business to concentrate on generating economic activity for Auckland. Common uses include light manufacturing, production, logistics, storage, transport and distribution.
