Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) has officially commenced construction of a new warehouse and distribution facility at Brisbane Airport. Representatives from BAC and Tomkins visited the site for the sod turning event including Tomkins General Manager Julian French, who said the relationship between Tomkins and BAC has flourished over the years, with the construction company heading up 12 projects to date on airport.
The industrial facility will be located on Litsea Street in Export Park and will offer approximately 10,000m2 of nett lettable area, including 550m2 of offices and 104 graded on-site car parks. The flexible space will also feature eight on-grade roller shutters, 10 metre springing height, an ESFR sprinkler system, dual street frontage, and drive-through access within the gated facility.
BAC Executive General Manager Commercial, Martin Ryan said that as the development is speculative no tenant had been secured for the facility yet, but the team had already received great interest before construction even commenced. “Demand for industrial property across South East Queensland is increasing and we have seen first-hand the growth within commercial property over the last two years. The location is so desirable that we are confident to proceed prior to a tenant commitment, and we are thrilled to have Tomkins as a trusted partner in this new endeavour,” Ryan said.
French said Tomkins was proud of its long-term relationship with BAC. “We’re delighted to be working with Brisbane Airport Corporation to deliver developments that provide state-of-the-art facilities for their tenants, and we have no doubt this latest facility will be a highly sought-after space,” French said.
The new development is planned for completion by the middle of 2022. Leasing opportunities are available now, with the option to customise the design to meet tenant requirements.
