Oyster Joint Venture Settles Central Park Purchase

2 July 2018   /   1 min read

Oyster Property Group and its joint venture partner have settled the $209 million purchase of Central Park Corporate Centre in the heart of the popular southern corridor, just 6 km from Auckland’s CBD.

The purchase was completed in partnership with global investment firm, KKR. 

Oyster’s CEO, Mark Schiele, says the acquisition, is consistent with Oyster’s strategy of partnering with appropriate capital at different points in the property cycle, and adding value through asset management expertise.

“It builds on our purchase of the Millennium Centre Business Park in 2017. We believe the Greenlane area offers great investment returns for the future which is why we see Central Park as a real opportunity.”

Central Park spans a large 6-hectare site and accommodates more than 60 businesses and 2,100 employees across 11 buildings. The total net lettable area is approximately 44,000m². Key tenants within the business park include Genesis Energy, Restaurant Brands, Youi, Mars, Toshiba, George Weston Foods, Department of Corrections and Salmat.

With the addition of Central Park, Oyster’s property assets under management now exceed $1.4 billion.
