Charter Hall Development Showcase
Charter Hall took an opportunity this week to showcase their development capability across all sectors of their business which Charter Hall claim has added $2.3bn in additional value to unit holders in their commercial & industrial funds over the past 10 years.
For Charter Hall this "develop to core" mandate is a key growth strategy and whilst markets remain under supplied, the strategy continue to deliver assets, value and fee revenue to their investors.
Charter Hall re-affirmed their view that the commercial and industrial markets are not heading for oversupply with most markets with decade low levels of vacancy, solid net absorption and supply at or under long term levels, conditions which inevitably lead to strong rental growth and higher land values.
