Augusta Capital, the listed property investor and fund manager, will buy a A$23 million industrial property in Brisbane, which it plans to put up for syndication.

The Auckland-based company will offer the property to syndicate investors in mid to late March, with a view to raising A$14 million, it said in a statement. The acquisition is conditional on Augusta raising at least A$9 million by the end of May. 

The Brisbane real estate is made up of two buildings, one whose tenant is in the second year of a 10-year lease, and the other which is being redeveloped ahead of a new nine-year lease expected to start at the end of June. 

Last month, Augusta bought a $92.8 million property portfolio which it will pour into a new unlisted fund for investors this year. 

Separately, Augusta was licensed by the Financial Markets Conduct Authority as a manager of other investment schemes covering property syndicates and managed funds. 

The shares were unchanged at 99 cents, and have slipped 1 percent so far this year.
