Mirvac gets green light for Eastern Creek precinct
Former federal government quarantine facility to become warehousing hub
Property developer Mirvac has gained the green light for its Calibre industrial estate in Sydney’s Eastern Creek.
Planning approvals mark the start of work at the 22 hectare site, formally used as a federal government quarantine facility.
Demolition works begin this month and full construction next month.
Calibre itself will offer warehousing and office accommodation over 120,000 square meters of floor space.
Situated at the nexus of the M4 and M7 motorways, Mirvac is marketing the site as "perfectly positioned as a distribution hub for the eastern seaboard, allowing seamless connections to major transport routes".
"As Australia’s, and particularly Sydney’s, residential markets continue to put pressure on inner city property, sites such as Calibre offer a unique opportunity for large-scale users to consolidate operations and increase efficiencies," Mirvac group executive industrial Stuart Penklis says.
"In the era of online retail and same-day delivery, a major consideration for logistical companies is access.
"Calibre’s proximity to major motorways with its own dedicated signalling intersection, will maximise speed of delivery which will ultimately deliver improving efficiency."
