Rare chance to secure prime Kunda Park freehold site
Posted by Development Ready on May 10, 2019

A rare opportunity now exists for an astute buyer to acquire a prime position in one of the Sunshine Coast’s most highly regarded industrial precincts.

After dismantling nearly 10,000 vehicles on their Kunda Park site since opening in 1986, the owners of Maroochy Auto Wreckers are now offering their freehold property for sale by expressions of interest.

The property, at 580 Maroochydore Road, is located midway between Maroochydore and the Bruce Highway, giving easy access to the entire region.

The sale of the 5972sqm site is being coordinated by the region’s leading commercial realtor, CBRE Sunshine Coast, which is now seeking Expressions of Interest.

The property comprises two adjoining lots on separate titles.

The first occupies 4047sqm with a 44m frontage to Maroochydore Road, and the second is a 1925sqm allotment fronting Page St which runs parallel with Maroochydore Road.

The property is initially being offered in one line, offering dual street frontage which allows customers to drive through the property, however it is possible the owners will consider the sale of each lot separately.

“It’s a unique opportunity to purchase a large property in a popular, well-established industrial precinct,” Mr Grimish said.

“The site is well positioned to service both a local and Coast-wide market and will continue to be surrounded by businesses with a need for a high profile in the foreseeable future,” he said.

There is a 650sqm metal-clad building on the site, as well as a 200sqm metal-clad storage shed. The property is fenced and gated at both frontages.

It is situated next to the Puma service station on the north side of Maroochydore Road. More than 20,000 vehicles a day pass by.

Kunda Park is the biggest industrial precinct in the central Sunshine Coast, and houses established outlets like One Steel, Toll, Mansell Group, Puma Energy, Tradelink, Bunnings Trade, BOC Gases, Adbri Masonry and Boral.

The Sunshine Coast is one of Australia’s fastest growing regions with excellent rail and motorway connections.

An east-west runway in being built at the Sunshine Coast Airport, which will accommodate international flights from Asia and the US.

The region’s economy continues to evolve into a modern, ‘smart’ economy based on solid growth across high valued and knowledge-based sectors.

The Sunshine Coast was recognised this year as one of the Top Seven Intelligent Communities of 2019, sharing the global spotlight with communities from Canada, Taiwan and the US. No other Australian city or region was named.

“This prime site is truly a once in a lifetime chance to secure a large, strategic allotment with existing improvements and the potential for holding income,” Mr Grimish said.

The property is for sale by Expressions of Interest closing on Wednesday, 12th June 2019 at 12 noon.
