Stockland has started construction on the Coopers Paddock Logistics Park, a new $80 million, functional office and warehouse estate in Warwick Farm, south-west Sydney.
The 52,000 square metre industrial precinct will service the rapidly growing South West Growth Centre, creating 250 local construction jobs and 300 long-term permanent jobs to stimulate growth in the region.
The 11.5 hectare industrial site was acquired in 2014 from the Australian Turf Club (ATC) and forms part of Stockland’s $400 million logistics and business parks development pipeline. The multi-warehouse, multi-tenant logistics development is expected to be complete by early-2018, with international household brand, Daikin already having pre-leased a significant part of the project.
General manager logistics and business parks at Stockland Tony D’Addona said: “We are proud to commence work on Coopers Paddock at Warwick Farm, a state of the art and sustainable logistics centre that will be an important piece of infrastructure for western Sydney.
“The strong interest in Liverpool driven by a robust NSW economy and infrastructure investment offers a great opportunity to develop high quality assets, in the very best locations.
“Our vision is to create a modern and functional warehouse estate, which will support local employment and meet south west Sydney’s growing demand for new warehousing and manufacturing space.”
The site is located in the heart of the South West Sydney industrial precinct close to the Hume Highway, M5 and M7 motorways, near the Southern Sydney Freight Line and future Badgerys Creek Airport. It is just 4km from the Moorebank development.
Stockland has appointed Taylor Constructions to build the new logistics centre with site preparation works already underway.
