The Group has delivered another strong operating performance in FY19 as customers continue to demand proximity to consumers.

Portfolio concentration in infill markets is delivering strong returns

At Goodman, we use our local market knowledge to source quality locations so that our customers can be close to their customers. The location and quality of our portfolio in key urban centres has continued to drive underlying returns, resulting in high occupancy and rental growth.

The supply constraints in these markets are contributing to the strong underlying fundamentals which are driving future growth.

Increased customer demand, driven by structural changes in our markets, is giving us greater confidence to escalate development activity. As a result, our development workbook is growing strongly. Commencements have increased to $4.2 billion while work in progress has increased 14% to $4.1 billion across 55 projects in 13 countries. This is expected to reach approximately $5 billion in the next 12 months.

The concentration on urban logistics developments is changing the nature of our projects. Land scarcity is driving the need for multi-storey developments, automation and robotics require higher-quality facilities, while there is an ever-increasing need to integrate sustainability features into the building. We are building properties that are flexible and adaptable to accommodate the demands of the future. These projects are more complex, however, we have the skills, infrastructure and financial resources to deliver.

Other key development highlights include:

  • Development completions of $3.9 billion
  • 81% committed on completion
  • 80% of WIP undertaken within Partnerships.
