The Fund is acquiring a 100% interest in an A-grade commercial office asset located within the emerging inner-city suburb of Footscray, approximately 6.5 kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD.
1 McNab Avenue is 100% leased4 with a Weighted Average Lease Expiry (WALE) of 11.8 years4 and approximately 91% of the income underpinned by the State Trustees, the Department of Treasury and Finance and City West Water. All six leases over the property are also structured on a net basis and include fixed annual rent increases of between 3.50% and 4.00%, which delivers healthy built-in rental growth.
Designated as one of Melbourne’s priority precincts, Footscray is set to be transformed by significant infrastructure investment and population growth. Furthermore, the property has been identified by the Victorian government as the first of five suburban hubs to allow public servants to work closer to home.
The Fund is forecast to provide attractive, tax-effective returns of 5.25% p.a. (annualised) in FY22 and growing to 5.35% p.a. in FY231,2.

Centuria Capital Group is an ASX listed specialist fund manager with $16 billion5 of assets under management.
Centuria Property Funds offers investments in listed and unlisted property across high quality office, industrial and healthcare assets around Australia. We are a relationship business, forging close connections with investors and actively managing properties to improve usability and attract and retain good tenants. We see this as our competitive advantage, which has helped us achieve a strong record of competitive income returns and capital growth.
The unlisted business has a 22 year heritage and in that time, has completed numerous unlisted property funds.
Centuria’s investment philosophy is founded on an active management approach to real estate where relationships are key and value can be added at all stages of the investment process (acquisition, ownership, management and disposal). Centuria has a particular strength in identifying assets that require intensive asset management to maximise returns and has an in-house team to deliver the requisite range of value-add services. Centuria does not try to predict broader macro economic trends but instead believes that an asset that is well acquired and actively managed will outperform a passive approach through the full economic cycle.
Centuria believes in a “hands-on” approach to managing property assets. Unlike a lot of property fund managers, Centuria does not outsource its property management to real estate agents (although property management may be outsourced in remote locations or for special purpose assets). Centuria has a fundamental belief that it can deliver better returns from its property assets by having a closer relationship with the tenants and a better understanding of the buildings themselves.
All investments in unlisted property funds carry risk. As the Fund invests in commercial property, it carries the market and property risks associated with investing in property. As a geared investment, the Fund also carries associated financial and leverage risks. Risks can impact on distribution and capital returns over the term of the Fund. It is important that you read the Product Disclosure Statement and understand the risks of investing.
