Cushman & Wakefield Represents Deka Immobilien in US$320 Million Acquisition of Melbourne Office Tower

·2 mins read

Cushman & Wakefield (NYSE: CWK) represented German investor Deka Immobilien in the acquisition of a 22-level Class A office tower at 452 Flinders Street, Melbourne, from the Dexus Wholesale Property Fund for US$320 million.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Luke Etherington, Sunal Patel and Sarah Baker managed the off-market campaign on behalf of Deka Immobilien, with client support provided by Richard Butler and Mark Hansen. The sale is expected to settle in mid-November 2020, pending approval from Australia’s Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB).

452 Flinders Street was sold fully occupied with a tenant mix comprising exclusively government, national and international corporations. This included recently signed leasing agreements with tenants including V-line and Jacobs Group.

The 409,000-square-foot commercial office tower located in Melbourne’s CBD has large approximately 29,000-square-foot plates with views across the Yarra River. The building includes 17 levels of Class A office space, a three-level basement car park, ground floor retail, mezzanine-level office, auditorium and end-of-trip facilities.

The property was acquired in 2011 by the Dexus Wholesale Property Fund and was subject to significant upgrade works including to the sky garden, lobby and extensive plant & equipment upgrades.

"The landmark acquisition of 452 Flinders Street is one of only a few major Australian office deals to have transacted this year and was completed while Melbourne remained in hard lockdown. This is an outstanding result given the unique challenges surrounding COVID-19," said Etherington, Cushman & Wakefield’s Head of Capital Markets, Victoria. "The competitive off-market sales process also saw multiple potential purchasers vie for the property. This, combined with Deka Immobilien’s unwavering interest in the asset through the pandemic, sends a clear signal that confidence in the outlook for Melbourne’s commercial office market remains strong."
