Waterloo Business Park is a 114-hectare industrial park, which has attracted businesses from a broad range of sectors including Halls Group, Cardinal Logistics, Sorted Logistics and Flyways. The business park is located 10km from Christchurch Airport and 14km to the west of Christchurch CBD. The precinct is easily reached by main arterial roads, with State Highway 1 being less than 1 km away from the subject property.

The Property consists of modern food processing and storage areas, office space, a factory shop, staff and visitor parking and truck loading areas.

The Property is split into a 2,010m² factory and processing facility (Building 1) and a 580m² office and reception area (Building 2) both constructed in 2014. Building 1 is constructed from steel portal frames with external steel cladding and a profiled steel roof. Building 2 is constructed from timber framed walls with external composite cladding (Alucobest) and a profiled steel roof. Both structures sits atop concrete pad foundations for the columns and a raft type floor slab under the load bearing walls.

Structural consultants, Centraus Structural Consulting, completed a Detailed Seismic Assessment (‘DSA’) of the Property in December 2021. The DSA reported a rating of 100% of the New Building Standard, a rating which is equivalent to a seismic ‘Grade A.’.

Polar Capital notably purchased the retailer Smith City in 2020.

As a food processing business, Hello Foods is deemed an essential service and can continue to operate during COVID lockdown requirements.

The purchase price for the Property is $10,000,000 which represents 52.4% of the total portfolio purchase price of $21,030,000.

The Property comprises a mix of offices and amenities, high stud food processing areas with associated cool storage, and distribution and loading areas. The majority of the accommodation is at ground floor level. Office accommodation and a viewing corridor is provided at mezzanine level.

The Property benefits from dual access to Connaught Drive and has a significant concrete yard / car parking area to the front.

Structural engineers, Centraus Structural Consulting, completed a Detailed Seismic Assessment (‘DSA’) of the Property in October 2021. The DSA reported a rating of >85% of the New Building Standard, which is equivalent to a seismic ‘Grade A’ and consequently determined the building to be neither earthquake prone nor an earthquake risk.
