Three unique acres with immediate Kings Rd frontage and industrial zoning are now on the market at Tuvu, between Lautoka and Ba, recently listed by Bayshore Real Estate.
Agency principal Arif Khan said the property’s prime location along the Government’s tax-free zone (TFZ) presented great opportunities investors, especially for its proximity to Lautoka’s central business district and the Queen’s Wharf and to the manufacturing hub of Ba.
“Its Freehold lease adds security for buyers, and because it’s along the official TFZ, there is great possibility of a tax holiday for investors who delve into manufacturing goods here, or other activities that would attract relaxed duty.”
Khan said the area’s flatland presented topography for immediate construction of infrastructure, and that the layout of the property was especially suited to a service station development.
“These commercial acres are perfect for a gas station or warehouse because the property has a lengthy run along the main Kings Rd, with a wide access road and safe entries and exits. There is spacious parking and electricity and water supply, and it’s located outside Lautoka’s municipal boundary, so wouldn’t incur council rates.
“There is a bus stop immediately outside the entrance, and with minimal neighbours, there is ample liberty for designing a project to the buyer’s liking, with the owner considering a Leaseback transaction.
There is great potential to construct a building measuring over 600m2 after parking, road works and landscaping, subjective to surveys.” The site commands generous views of the famous Tuvu hills and great highway visibility. Khan noted that aside from industrial, the site could be rezoned to suit other developments such as a tourism project.
“Presently, the site is ideal as a gas station, factory and even residential lots, especially since it has great traffic passage, along central public transport route, high accessibility and proximity to Lautoka and Ba’s central business districts.”
Additionally, there are nearby, quarter acre lots that are also selling. These 12 lots were previously approved as a residential subdivision and planted over the Tuvu hillside, with generous views of the sea. Khan said the lots ranged from 800m, and that considering the high demand but low inventory for local housing, a subdivision at this ready-made site would still be a fantastic business venture.
“The site falls directly into an extended area of Fiji’s tax-free zone, and with its location outside town boundaries avoiding municipal rates, there are great incentives here for residential developers.
“Tuvu is a short 10 kilometres from Lautoka and 20 kilometres from the Nadi International Airport, so the site has great proximity to central locations while retaining the incentives of its zoning.
“Tuvu has attracted considerable operations including the headquarters of FRIEND Fiji, a Rups factory and a recent acquisition by hardware giants, Vinod Patel.”
As a melting pot for property developments, he said these 3 commercial acres and the residential lots’ set in the heart of Tuvu were a desirable listing.
