An industrial unit at 13 Saleyards Rd, Otahuhu, described as ideal for the first premises of a new business operator, is being offered for sale with vacant possession.
"Unit J is the rear unit in an industrial complex that was built in the 1980s to house light industrial manufacturing businesses," said Ben Johnson of Barfoot & Thompson Commercial, who is marketing it for sale for an asking price of $400,000.
"This sale is an excellent chance for someone to establish their own business setup with the luxury of built-in accommodation upstairs in the form of a high quality two bedroom apartment.
"Or, if desired, the apartment could be converted into additional office space.
"This 270sq m Business 5 zoned industrial unit is on a freehold 350sq m site close to the State Highway One motorway and is only a 20-minute drive from the Auckland CBD.
"The current working area of the property comprises a clean and tidy warehouse with mezzanine floor for extra storage, office, smoko room and a locker room.
"This is a good hard-working functional unit that would suit a small to medium size business or first-time business operator requiring a central location with accommodation on site."
The warehouse has a 5m stud height and twin entry roller doors. The concrete and cinder block building has sturdy wooden roofing and clear corrugated sky lighting providing natural lighting.
It comes with shelving, three- phase power and compressed air lines, a small yard area out the front and parking for staff and customers.
"This is the perfect work space for an owner operator who would like to lower their expenses by having the accommodation at their place of work," Johnson said.
