CONSTRUCTION on a new business park at Eastern Creek with the potential to deliver 700 full-time jobs is imminent.
Civil works on the 22 hectare site are finished and the first of five buildings should be completed at the end of October.
‘Building 1’ will provide 18,020 square metres of warehouse space, 950 square metres of modern office and amenities as well as 73 car park spaces.
Mirvac group executive Stuart Penkils said a shortage of undeveloped land in Sydney has sparked a strong interest from companies in the site officially named Calibre Eastern Creek.
“Many of these prospective tenants are looking for alternative locations to the Sydney’s traditional industrial hubs of Alexandria, Mascot and Rosebery where they are constrained by older buildings and operational constraints,” he said.
“In contrast, Calibre offers space in abundance, along with premium specifications that support increased efficiencies. It’s delivering the whole package and that holds strong appeal for businesses in today’s ever changing competitive market.”
The state-of-the-art site will also install environmentaly friendly utlities including energy efficient lighting, rainwater harvesting, photovoltaic solar and a bike shed once fully operational.
A Mirvac spokesperson said the entire site should be completed by the end of 2018.
