CLW currently owns a 49.9% interest in the Property which formed part of the CLW portfolio at IPO in November 2016. The remaining 50.1% of the Property is owned by Charter Hall Direct managed funds DIF2 and DIF3.

“This lease extension demonstrates the strong relationships which Charter Hall Group has with its tenant customers across its platform and the benefits this brings to CLW. It is great to be able to extend this lease with a high quality tenant, Coles Group, which results in an increase in the CLW portfolio WALE to 13.3 years,” said Avi Anger, Fund manager of CLW.
