Supermarket Expansions Planned

Foodstuffs have lodged a resource consent application for a replacement Pak’nSave at their existing site in Tamatea Napier. If resource consent is granted building is due to start in mid 2015. The current store will remain open and be demolished once the new store is trading.

In Hastings the Countdown Supermarket at Queen Street West sold in February 2014 for $7.1m. The adjacent site owned by the Hastings RSA is under contract, reportedly for around $3.3m, and is planned to be redeveloped to provide an expanded Countdown Store across both sites. The RSA club is planning to amalgamate with the Heretaunga Club.

In Havelock North, Countdown is still actively looking for a supermarket site, with a site identified on Havelock Road but this is already raising objections from neighbouring owners.

Prime Rents and Yields Summary June 2012

Download the latest research on the Hastings and Napier commercial property market

  • Prime property continues to ‘hold steady’ despite an uncertain world outlook
  • Hawke’s Bay statistics show a further weakening of economic growth; investor confidence is slightly weaker compared with a year ago
  • Building seismic issues bring uncertainty to property trading and it will take the market some time to establish clarity with the long run position
  • Investment property yields in both Hastings and Napier are stable and remain similar to previous levels at 8.1% and 7.7% respectively
  • Demand is apparent from investors for prime retail property but supply is limited.  Industrial property is also in demand and shows the best returns, this is consistent with other regions where the industrial sector shows the earliest recovery.
