A rare parcel of commercial land at Capalaba, in Brisbane’s east, recently sold a day prior to auction for $3 million.

184-186 Redland Bay Road, CapalabaThe valuable 2.5 acre parcel located at 184-186 Redland Bay Road, Capalaba, sold above expectations, and was the last remaining block from a 70 to 80 acre agricultural subdivision, owned by a local businessman and farmer.

“The property was secured by a high-profile local owner-occupier who had his work cut out to secure the property, as we had 30 genuine enquiries from businesses and investors,” says Kevin Murdock, Director, Raine & Horne Commercial Bayside, who sold the property in conjunction with his colleague Colin Tucker.

“Capalaba is a popular retail hub which is home to virtually every major retail brand and this property was a rare opportunity to buy a stake in the heart of this popular commercial precinct.”

Capalaba is also a major industrial hub offering easy accessibility to major South East Queensland regions including the Brisbane CBD, Port of Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Ipswich.

Mr Tucker says, “Road networks into the area continue to improve and the site can easily be accessed from through roads such as Moreton Bay Road and Old Cleveland Road.

“As a consequence, for up to 95% of the time, vacancy rates on Redland Bay Road are zero and the significant interest in this property was a result of the fact that there is a shortage of space for prime retail showroom space.

“This property comes with a huge 75 metre frontage onto Redland Bay Road and has exposure to over 20,000 passing vehicles every day.”
