Construction will begin shortly on Brisbane Airport’s next industrial warehousing space development.
Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) is delivering a rolling inventory of developments to create new opportunities for tenants to make the move to the airport.
Martin Ryan, BAC executive general manager of commercial, said the proactive development demonstrated the airport’s desirability as an industrial offering.
“Brisbane Airport continues to experience strong demand for its highly connected industrial sites, in part because of their unparalleled transport links and 24/7 operational capacity,” he said.
The new Boronia Road development in stage one of Airport Industrial Park’s 100-hectare zone is a 17,000m2 site with approximately 8,600m2 of lettable area. The development will include a 7,800m2 warehouse and 750m2 two-level office building, which will be complemented with 73 car parking bays. The 12-month build will involve over 700 workers and is due to be completed mid-2024.
The airport’s 24/7 capacity means the warehouse is primed for round-the-clock operations, enabling continuous service or production. Key amenities are located only minutes away in the Skygate mixed-use retail, commercial and leisure precinct.
“Freight demand in Australia is growing significantly with government estimates predicting a 60% jump to service urban areas by 2040,’’ Ryan said. “At Brisbane Airport, we are well placed to meet that demand.’’
The airport is home to a diverse mix of over 125 businesses and leading brands. These include Direct Couriers, Miele Australia, Downer, DHL, Australia Post, Schneider Electric and GEODIS.
