The business also recorded the highest number of residential sales since FY16.

Like Goodman Group, Mirvac has been putting effort into reducing its impact on the environment. Mirvac reported a carbon footprint reduction of 80% across the investment portfolio.

“A continued focus on prudent capital management during FY21 has enabled the Group to manage the volatility caused by the global pandemic, providing us with flexibility and sufficient financial headroom to capitalise on improving market and business conditions,” added Ms Lloyd-Hurwitz.

The company’s operating cashflow is $635 million, up 41%, and has reduced average borrowing costs to 3.4% per annum. In June 2020, the figure was 4.0%.

Mirvac’s integrated investment portfolio also recorded gains, EBIT is up 6% to $576 million, NOI up 5% to $581 million, and cash collection rate was 98%. The portfolio also had an occupancy of 97.4% and WALE of 5.6 years.

The investment portfolio also saw AUM increase to $25 billion, with other highlights including an 11% valuation uplift on EY Centre 200 George Street in Sydney.

EBIT for the company’s commercial and mixed-use was $33 million and had a valuation gain of $121 million.

Residential had an operating EBIT of $168 million, which was 25% lower than the last financial year. The company attributed the change as “driven by a greater contribution from master planned community projects in FY21, compared to FY20 which benefited from record level apartment settlements.”

Mirvac also launched a number of ‘flagship’ projects including Quay at Waterfront (Brisbane), Green Square (Sydney) and George’s Cove (Sydney).
