The Owens Transport depot in Port Rd, Seaview, is up for tender.
The building, originally built for AllTranz in the 1970s, is leased by Owens Transport's parent company, Mainfreight, with a lease that has six years to run and a right of renewal for a further six years.
Bayleys agents Andrew Smith said it was a large clear span warehouse building split into two interconnected bays each with multiple roller doors and eight-metre-wide canopies extending almost the full length of the building on both sides.
The canopies allow B trains and containers to be unloaded out of the weather and driveways down either side of the building allow trucks to be driven in one side of the warehouse and out the other.
The high-stud warehouse with two-storey office and amenity block has a total lettable area of 6266 square metres on an 8181sqm site.
High-profile neighbours include transport and logistics firms Linfox, New Zealand Van Lines and Strait Freight, Mobil, Chevron and BP and paint manufacturer Dulux.
The Hodge Properties-owned depot, which has a rating value of about $4.5 million, is returning net annual rent of $442,500 plus GST.
