Stockland (ASX: SGP) and Invesco Real Estate, a global real estate investment manager, today announced they have entered into a strategic open-ended partnership to develop and hold an initial portfolio of three Land Lease Community (LLC) assets in the newly established Stockland Land Lease Partnership (SLLP1) which is expected to generate approximately AUD 1.1 billion1 in gross development revenue2.

The partnership, established on the initial basis of Stockland’s 50.1% interest, and Invesco Real Estate’s flagship pan-Asian core strategy 49.9% interest, will include ~1,190 homes across three Land Lease Communities at The Gables NSW, Aura 2 (Coves), Qld and Redland Bay, Qld as well as an opportunity for SLLP1 to acquire the land lease community at Providence, Qld.

In line with Stockland’s group strategy, the partnership expands its capital partnership platform and leverages the availability of long-term institutional capital and investment appetite for the Australian residential sector.  The partnership further aligns with Invesco Real Estate’s core strategy to deliver compelling, high-performing opportunities to their investors.

Stockland Chief Investment Officer, Justin Louis, said: “Invesco is a leading global investment management firm and we’re pleased to be able to bring to this partnership our demonstrated leadership and proven expertise in asset management and development.

“With the execution of SLLP1, we are pleased to welcome another globally recognised institutional partner to our ~8,800 home Land Lease Communities pipeline.

“Our Land Lease business offers high-quality, commercially attractive investment prospects for third-party investor partners, such as Invesco. The SLLP1 partnership will enable us to continue to scale our development pipeline and grow our LLC operating platform to enhance long-term sustainable business growth.”

Ian Schilling, Head of Asia Pacific Core Funds for Invesco Real Estate, added: “This partnership with Stockland, one of the most established players in the segment, is an ideal platform to expand exposure to this attractive and growing real estate sector.  Land Lease Communities are a high-conviction investment theme for us given the housing shortage and ageing population in Australia. This partnership is a key component in us continuing to grow our diversified portfolio of high-quality assets that are underpinned by robust market fundamentals and strong income and capital growth.” 

Stockland is positioning for a step change in production rates in the Land Lease Communities sector with up to 12 new communities expected to launch during FY24  (subject to relevant approvals and planning). Stockland’s LLC strategy is supported by Australia’s ageing population and growing preference of retirees for community living benefits such as increased social connectivity and resort-like amenities.

SLLP1 is Stockland’s second partnership in the LLC sector, following its successful establishment of the Stockland Residential Rental Partnership (SRRP) with Mitsubishi Estate Asia in February 2022.

Jarden acted as exclusive financial adviser to Stockland in relation to the transaction.
