Alliance Group will be selling Oak Park in Oak Avenue, Ferndale this month — this property is a well-maintained five-storey office block which is multitenanted and has a low maintenance exterior.

Rael Levitt Auction AllianceThe building offers about 5000m² of B-grade office space and is an ideal investment opportunity. It is situated on a corner stand offering high visibility on two main roads, Dover and Oak avenues. Oak Park has a vacancy of about 1150m² which may suit an owneroccupier wishing to occupy the vacancy immediately with a view to occupy the entire building as leases expire.

According to the 2008 Randburg Management District’s annual report, the vacancy rates have shown a steady and continuous decrease since the body was legislated in 2004 from 17,5% in 2005 to 6,8% in 2007.

Randburg’s land value has increased about 400% since the inception of the management body.

The latest Rode Report says that vacancies in the area for the fourth quarter of last year stand at 6,88% (according to the Office Vacancy Report compiled for SAPOA by IPD, the vacancy stands at 6.3% as at June 2009 - eProp).

As can be seen by the low vacancy rate, Randburg is a sought-after area as rentals are competitive and are available at a fraction of the cost of areas in close proximity, such as Sandton, Bryanston and Rivonia. Randburg offers good value and strong investment opportunities.
