                 Pace of construction activity is
                 not sufficient to keep up with
                 demand in Auckland.

                 Wellington’s pace of absorption
                 may slow over the next 12
                 months due to reducing supply
                 rather than decreasing demand.

       Christchurch’s market is likely
       to enter a period of change
       as demand pressures reduce
       fractionally after a continued
       period of significant demand.

Demand for industrial space in Wellington pushed the vacancy
rate to a record low 3.6% with less than 100,000 sqm of space now                             6%
available. This is well below the 9.0% reached in late 2012. The
majority of the reduction was due to stronger tenant demand
and practically no new supply. More than 70,000 sqm of vacant                                 2%

further growth in the sector along with employment numbers

The latest Colliers International Vacant Industrial Land supply
survey shows further traction in land absorption last year in the
Wellington region (including the Wairarapa). Approximately 20 ha
of land was absorbed, up from approximately 13 ha last year.

Rising Cash Flow and Values
Industrial property rents in the capital city have been rising steadily
over the past year. Rents have increased by approximately $5/sqm
to $10/sqm across most precincts. This has seen Wellington moving
firmly away from the flat rental rates that provided some of the most
affordable rates out of the main centres in New Zealand. Rent rises                          Rockport Holdings sold their former Mitsubishi Motors Vehicle

Colliers International Investor Confidence survey. In the March
2016 quarter, investors were a net positive 25% (optimists minus
pessimists) in their expectations on rising rents, decreasing
vacancy and higher returns. This is the highest rate since the survey                        39-49 Randwick Rd

to this recent bout of confidence. Continued economic support for
occupiers and low interest rates to augment returns, bodes well for
Wellington’s investment sector for the medium term.

The next 12 months will see a continuation of the steady purchasing
demand from owner-occupiers moving to larger and higher quality
premises especially for properties $2 million or less. A recent
example includes Metco moving from Wingate to Seaview. Investors
are back in greater numbers for properties valued $2 million or
more, but the lack of new and high quality properties to purchase
is inhibiting yields from firming at faster rates. However, the recent
rises in rents and the growing confidence in the market is leading
to a tipping point that will likely see more brownfield development
occur than in recent years. This could lead to further investment

Zealand’s oldest town, is keeping vacancy rates high. We are seeing
a rising number of tenants missing out on prime space, reluctantly
staying put, with some investigating new build opportunities
especially as business confidence grows.

Several strongly performing local and national businesses are
undertaking major industrial development projects in Dunedin:
brewing giant Lion is constructing a $6 million facility in Anzac
Ave on a 1.4 ha site for local brewery Emerson’s, Port Otago
subsidiary Chalmers Properties is building a $9.45 million, 4,650
sqm warehouse and office for Steel & Tube on an 8,000 sqm site at
197 Fryatt St and Pallet provider Chep New Zealand has opened a
$4 million office and warehouse development in Sturdee St.

Investment activity remains buoyant, but the high number of
leasehold properties and the reluctance of owners to sell in a tight
market has slowed activity in recent months. This has kept values
appreciating. When good opportunities do arise, they are well
received and competed for by investors and owner-occupiers.

The majority of purchasers are locals, with a number of smaller
value lot premises within the region also enjoying some of the
country’s largest gaps between debt costs and returns. A recent
example includes 9-11 Lorne St which sold mid-last year, partially
vacant for $600,000 at a yield of approximately 8% based on a fully
leased basis. Opportunities for owner-occupiers are also available
with a vacant building on leasehold land at 353 Andersons Bay Rd
one example which was also sold mid-last year for $650,000.

Emerson’s Brewery Development
Anzac Ave, Central Dunedin

Brewing giant Lion has completed a $6 million facility on Anzac Ave for
local brewery Emerson’s. Emerson’s are relocating from their current
facility located in Wickliffe St. The new site of approx. 1.4 ha sits on a
main arterial route, in close proximity to Forsyth Barr Stadium.
