Puma service station site in North Perth sells for more than $4m

11 July, 2018

 

An inner-city Perth service station with development potential has traded for $4.01 million through Ray White Commercial WA.

Stephen Harrison and Brett Wilkins introduced the private investor to the Puma petrol station site at 309-311 Fitzgerald Street, North Perth, via a Ray White Commercial WA newsletter.

The 1077sqm site at the corner of Eden, Vincent and Fitzgerald streets is leased to Puma Energy (Australia) until December 2026, with two five-year options.

Mr Harrison says the net rental income is $258,750 per annum with 3.5 per cent annual increases. The sale reflects a passing yield of 6.4 per cent.

“The property also offers the potential for future multi-level mixed-use redevelopment on the expiry of the lease,” he says.

“The City of Vincent’s ‘Precinct 12 (Hyde Park)’ zoning allows for a building of up to four storeys.”

Mr Wilkins says the vendor is another private investor. The property was listed for sale in August 2017.

“Improvements to the site comprise a typical service station and workshop including a retail convenience store, back office, store rooms, ablutions and kitchenette,” he says.

“New underground fuel tanks and lines have recently been installed.”

Mr Harrison and Mr Wilkins had to disclose and work through contamination issues with the Department of Environmental Regulation, the seller and the buyer, which extended the sale and settlement process.

“As agents, we required detailed knowledge of the relevant legislation to find a path for the buyers and financiers to settlement,” Mr Harrison says.
