Real estate fund manager EG has announced the acquisition of an industrial site at Richlands, an outer south-western suburb in the City of Brisbane, for $21.5 million.

The 28 Flint Street site is for their Australian Core Enhanced Fund (EG ACE) which recently acquired three office assets in a $450 million deal, making the latest acquisition the ninth asset EG has acquired for the Fund. Additionally, the fund also acquired a $32 million industrial estate in Mansfield.

As part of the deal, EG will be entering into an agreement with Frasers Industrial Property, who will deliver a new 12,157sqm warehouse facility on the site.

The acquisition was brokered off-market by CBRE.

28 Flint Street, Richlands fits well with the EG ACE strategy to acquire assets in locations with strong underlying fundamentals”, said Will Clark, EG’s Senior Manager – Capital Transactions.

“This will be another high-quality addition to the portfolio, continuing our focus on ensuring our assets are equipped to meet the ever-evolving requirements of our tenants.”
