Sydney Industrial and Office Property Markets - Key Features in Y/E June 2018

The Savills Sydney Industrial and CBD Office Briefings for July 2018 gives some of the key indicators and details affecting the industrial property market during that period and compared to longer-term trends.

Key features:

  • The wholesale sector comprised 43% of all industrial space leases in FY 2018

  • In 2017, just under 500,000 square metres of new space was added to Sydney’s industrial market, with over 50% of this investment concentrated in Western Sydney.

  • Demand for industrial land by investors remains strong with local and overseas purchasers. This demand is pushing prices up and firming yields.

  • A-grade net effective office rents grew between 13.0% (Parramatta) and 19.6% (Sydney CBD) over the year to June 2018.

  • Parramatta had the lowest vacancy rate for prime grade properties in Australia at 0%

  • Sydney CBD is expected to have negative net supply until 2019.
