A substantial amount of vacant office space in central Takapuna is available to occupy now, with flexible tenancy sizes and favourable rental rates on offer.
Colliers International brokers Eileena Stoddart, Matt Lamb and Janet Marshall have been appointed as master agents to sublease 1-7 The Strand.
The four-level office building has floors of between 750sq m to 8000sq m, with flexibility to partition off smaller areas as required by tenants.
Located almost exactly in the centre of Takapuna, the property has spectacular harbour views and is a stone's throw from Takapuna Beach.
Lamb says it is surplus to the tenant's requirements which has created the opportunity to take immediate occupation of the office space.
"The tenant is highly motivated to sublease, so this represents a superb chance to secure a flexible amount of office space that is competitively priced.
"Alternately, a long-term lease may be obtained by exercising an existing right of renewal, or possibly by negotiating directly with the property owner.
"The property would offer a ready-to-occupy solution ideal for a start-up company requiring flexibility to expand, or an established organisation needing a base to fulfil a significant contract.
"The A-grade seismic building features large light-filled floor plates with extensive windows and a good quality fit out in place. The office space includes a boardroom, meeting rooms, kitchen and lunchroom, and a reception area all within a clean, open plan design.
"To add to the convenience, a range of furniture is available if required, including desks, chairs, meeting and boardroom tables. The property has good access to the motorway network, putting it within 15 minutes' drive of the Auckland CBD. The location also makes it highly convenient to service North Shore-based projects.
Takapuna offers excellent public transport links, with bus routes linking the seaside suburb with the CBD and the North Shore's residential suburbs, which house an excellent workforce catchment.
"Staff will be able to enjoy the best the North Shore has to offer, with a large wrap-around deck that has outstanding harbour views. Numerous cafe and eatery options are in the area, including The Coffee Club, which is conveniently located in a ground-floor retail tenancy within the building.
Marshall, a specialist in North Shore commercial sales and leasing, says Takapuna is recognised by Auckland Council as a key area for intensification.
"It is the Shore's premier centre, providing shopping, recreational, employment and commercial services in an attractive beachfront setting. The suburb is projected to become the backyard for an estimated 15,000 residents and 15,000 employees by 2040. This growth is supported by Takapuna's central location — 9km from Auckland City and 28km from Auckland International Airport."
