Blue Mountains food distributor, Colless Foods, has sold a refrigerated warehouse in Katoomba for $5.05 million. Located at 32 Woodlands Road, the 19,291 square metre site comprises a 3,647 square metre purpose-built cold storage facility with trade retail capability, a new diesel generator, 306 solar panels and a 50,000-litre underground fuel tank. The sale comes after Colless Foods founder, Tom Colless, announced his retirement in 2022. CBRE's Matthew Alessi and Brendan Wein brokered the deal on behalf of Colless Foods. "The site is extremely unique, catering for cold storage users with the ability to retail from the property. Our sales campaign drew interest from local and nationwide owner-occupiers and investors," Mr Alessi said. "The local purchaser was attracted by the significant land area, excellent condition of the property and the large two-level corporate office as well as the quick availability to occupy the building." A spokesperson said the purchaser of the warehouse wished to remain anonymous.
