Case Study Industrial: Sydney North

83 Pacific Highway Waitara1536x1040

83 Pacific Highway, Waitara


Our Colliers Sydney North experts worked closely with our private client who owned 83 Pacific Highway, Waitara. With a long-standing tenant vacating the property, our client sought our advice given our strong track record in the Upper North Shore to consider a divestment strategy.

The property is situated on approximately 762sqm of land, encompassing 10 spaces and a showroom/bulky goods building of 350sqm. Visible to circa 27,000 vehicles daily, the high profile site is a highly exposed showroom site in Sydney’s upper North Shore area.


Our experts Toby Hardiman and John Carney reviewed the options to attract a new tenant versus vacant possession and put together a comprehensive strategy designed to deliver a fantastic result for our client.

After reviewing likely occupiers for the premises, our team believed a vacant possession would attract a stronger outcome from the market, given the high profile position of the property on the Pacific Highway at Waitara. Based on this, we were appointed to sell the asset utilizing our database and market intelligence to ensure a competitive process for our client.


With a short off-market campaign involving on a handful of inspections, the team were able to achieve approximately $4,330 per square metre of land for the property, equating to a sale price of $3,300,000. Our client was pleased with the outcome and we would like to thank our client for entrusting us with the sale and we wish them well for their future endeavours.

At Colliers, we maximise the potential of property to accelerate the success of our clients and our people. To learn more about this transaction, contact Toby Hardiman or John Carney.
