2023: Our Growth, Innovations and Performance

Closing out the year is always a moment of reflection, and at Commercial Collective, we have much to celebrate. With transactions upwards of half a billion dollars, 2023 has been a testament to our team's dedication and the trust placed in us by our clients. From expanding our talented team to navigating dynamic market landscapes, every step has been a stride towards growth. Take a look at the details of our year, as we share insights into the collaborations and innovations that defined our journey through 2023.

14 New Faces Fuelling Our Growth

In the past year, Commercial Collective has undergone significant expansion, welcoming 14 new members. This strategic growth spans two additions to the Marketing team, three to Property Management, two to Business Innovation, two to Administration, and five to Sales and Leasing. Our commitment to expanding our workforce enhances our industry connections and elevates our service capabilities, positioning us to better serve our existing and future clients.

To accommodate this growth, we moved into our new Newcastle office at 10 Newcomen Street earlier this year. This relocation not only signifies our commitment to providing an optimal working environment for our team but also lays the foundation for continued expansion.

Ending 2023 strong with transactions upwards of $500M

We believe the true value of our combined experience, reputation, connections and the commitment we make to each client is a long-lasting relationship based on trust and respect. It is with this focus that we have been able to successfully transact over 300 properties both locally and nationally, worth almost $500M.

The industrial market has experienced a surge in demand for newly constructed, functional facilities, while the Commercial landscape is characterised by a promising supply of investment opportunities and an increasing emphasis on sustainability. The markets have seen much change over the past few years, particularly due to the impact of Covid-19, the changes that have been navigated have been significant.

Among the noteworthy transactions of the past year, we are pleased to have been exclusively appointed by Newcastle Airport as leasing agents for their industrial and commercial facilities, Astra Aerolab in Williamtown. The industrial site spans 1,000 to 2,000 sqm*, and the commercial site comprises six floors, with ground-floor retail outlets. Additionally, the upcoming sale listing of 54 Clyde Street in Hamilton North is noteworthy. The former Lampworks site, now a commercial business complex that generates approximately $2 million per year plus GST and consists of 2.11h* of building area on a 2.81h* site, is set to be a key property on offer for 2024. We are pleased to support a long-term client through the sale of this significant asset.
