Goodman Group Stakeholder Review 2021

Roma Road Estate, Auckland

In Auckland, a 13-hectare brownfield site is being transformed into a modern logistics hub that maximises the property’s inner-city location.

Targeting a five-star Green Star certification, Roma Road will feature four highly sustainable buildings with workspaces complemented by extensive onsite amenities. The embodied carbon from the estate’s building materials and construction process will be reduced, where possible, with the remainder offset.

Market update

Continued urbanisation in New Zealand has confirmed the importance of central locations for industrial properties, close to consumers. Goodman’s portfolio is in Auckland where land is constrained and warehouse rental growth continues.

Fifty-three percent of New Zealanders now shop online, which has increased customer demand for strategic locations that enable speed to market.
