$17 million for Townsville office asset as JLL marks over $70 million in sales in North Queensland capital this year


JLL Queensland’s Elliott O’Shea and Sam Byrne have successfully sold Urban Corner at 71 Stanley Street in Townsville for $17 million on behalf of a private investor. 


Urban Corner was purchased by the Queensland-based Aviator Capital prior to the commencement of an on-market campaign,” said JLL’s Elliott O'Shea


Previously a Coles-anchored neighbourhood shopping centre, Urban Corner underwent a significant $6 million repositioning program in 2018, converting it from a retail focus, to a 3,654sqm single-level office asset,” he said. 


“Subsequent lease deals with GHD Engineers and Manpower have underpinned the demand for high quality office space in the area.”


Situated on a prominent island site of 4,538sqm, Urban Corner provides unique retail fundamentals along with high-quality office improvements, with a highly attractive 113 undercover car parks over a single level basement providing a point of difference in the market.


The deal marks the third transaction in the region by JLL in 2021, with the total exchanged sales volume in excess of $70 million and a further $25 million in assets currently under contract.


Mr O’Shea continued, “The Urban Corner transaction is another example of the liquidity in our regional markets for the right product.  There remains high levels of unsatisfied capital still looking within these markets for value that cannot be found currently in metropolitan areas.”


Aviator Capital’s Andrew Glen said, “Townsville is an exciting regional market which we believe will benefit from significant infrastructure and investment programs over the medium term.”


“Aviator Capital continues to grow our funds-under-management with Urban Corner representing the newest addition to our portfolio of commercial assets,” Mr Glen said.
