Go ahead for MAB’s premium industrial development in Melbourne’s north
MAB Corporation has announced the commencement of its new $80 million industrial development in Melbourne’s north with the subdivision permit from City of Whittlesea now in place.
MAB General Manager Commercial and Industrial said that Alliance Business Park in Epping will build on the organisation’s impressive reputation for delivering high quality business parks.
“Alliance will quickly become a key industrial hub for the region,” said Mr Johnston.
Alliance will comprise over 90 fully serviced lots ranging in size from 1,000m² to 25,000m².
Demand at the development is expected to be high due to the shortage of prime industrial land in the north and its close proximity to the new Wholesale Fruit, Vegetable and Flower Market site on Cooper Street.
“Flexibility is a priority. We are offering a variety of lots sizes to cater for all business types,” said Mr Johnston. “High quality landscaping and over six hectares of open space will be key features.”
The 62-hectare site will create approximately 4,000 new jobs for the region.
“This is a solid injection of jobs, providing ongoing growth for the City of Whittlesea,” said Mr Johnston.
MAB anticipates the release of land for sale in October 2012 and is working closely with the City of Whittlesea to start construction as soon as possible.
“We anticipate that works will commence in early 2013,” said Mr Johnston. “We are keen to welcome businesses to their new premises as early as June 2013.”
Alliance Business Park is located within the Cooper Street Employment Precinct, adjoining the Hume Freeway to the west and in close proximity to Cooper Street, Epping Plaza and the Northern Hospital.
The estate is just 17 minutes from Melbourne Airport and 20 minutes from Melbourne Ports and CBD.
“The location is ideal with excellent access to major arterials roads and infrastructure,” said Mr Johnston.
