Smales Farm buy up Smales Farm is on a property acquisition spree. It's latest purchase is a high-profile site on 2-4 Fred Thomas Drive in Takapuna, coming barely a month after it bought the ANZ Busi- ness Centre on Corinthian Drive in Albany. Smales Farm general manager Daniel Hender- son says the acquisitions are part of its new growth strategy of ven- turing outside the foot- print of its Technology Office Park on Taharoto Rd. Smales Farm will invest heavily to bring the new buildings up to a high standard,'' he says. The property consists of two separate three- storey buildings with a warehouse, bowling alley and more than 250 carparks. The 17 tenants include Revlon, AON Insurance, Golder Associates and New Zealand Coast- guard. The site has easy access to the northern motorway via Esmonde Rd to the south and Northcote Rd to the north. Mr Henderson says both buildings have been neglected in recent times but they have the poten- tial to be made into a high-quality investment. Careful management and refurbishment is going to be key in mak- ing these buildings achieve their true poten- tial,'' he says. Smales Farm has retained architects Stephenson and Turner NZ Ltd to help develop the creative concepts for the building. The gardens around the buildings will be totally removed before repainting commences. A new landscaping plan for the site is being developed, with new planting going in once the painting is complete. It's full speed ahead to bring these buildings up to the Smales Farm standard,'' he says.
