Investa has strategically engaged the services of Property Partnership Australia (PPA) to lease various retail tenancies throughout the Investa portfolio. The team at PPA have always demonstrated a level of focus and commitment which combined with their excellent understanding of retail, particularly in the F&B category, makes appointing them a safe and commercially sensible solution.
Michael Cook – Group Executive, Investa
I have been an owner of commercial real estate for over 30 years dealing with all the various agencies as well as a lessee in most major shopping centres. The difference between PPA and their peers is their understanding of the various retail markets and the importance of the retail business to the viability of any particular site. Any agent can do the obvious and straight forward deals but it takes patience, experience and expertise to lease the more difficult sites. I have had a long and successful association with PPA and can confidently recommend them to the industry as people you can truly rely on.
Warwick Susskind - Director, The 8 Group
One Five One Property (formally Valad Property Group) has regularly appointed Property Partnership Australia for specialist project retail leasing over the last 14 years. Over this period PPA have been appointed on numerous sites including the retail redevelopment at 227 Elizabeth Street, Sydney and more recently reconfigured retail space at 151 Castlereagh Street, Sydney. On all occasions PPA have been as committed at the end of the project as they are at the start which is particularly important when leasing the final shops. We continue to work with PPA and value their service.
Guy Halsted - 151 Property Group (A Blackstone Portfolio Company)
We recently used retail consultancy, Property Partnership Australia, to design and lease retail premises at 56 – 58 York Street, Sydney. By recommending a rear entrance be created off Temperance Lane we were able to gain direct access to George Street and also sub-divide the space into 4 tenancies. This resulted in a substantial increase in rental income and we now have 4 quality tenants on long leases. PPA also facilitated the lease of vacant roof space to the highly respected Keystone Group which added further value to the property.
