Joint venture developers Frasers Property Industrial and Aware Real Estate have secured SEKO Logistics, a global supply chain solutions specialist, on a 10-year lease at The YARDS, a premium industrial estate at Kemps Creek.
The built-to-suit 30,581 square metre facility will be SEKO Logistics’ new Australian headquarters as the company consolidates its two existing facilities.
Construction has just commenced by builder CIP Constructions. Once complete, the new facility will comprise around 30,000 square metres of modern warehouse space with 18,860 square metres of storage areas and two offices and a dock office totalling 581 square metres.
The design features full drive around truck access, 13 flush loading docks and 10 recessed loading docks to support business growth.
“We are pleased to welcome SEKO Logistics to The YARDS and are proud to have secured another high quality customer to the estate,” said Roland Martin, General Manager – NSW at Frasers Property Industrial.
“Our vision for The YARDS is to create a premium industrial estate, showcasing best-in-class design, technology, operations and sustainability to help fulfill the growing demand for quality warehouse and logistics space in the region. It’s exciting to see our vision come to life as we attract more global blue-chip brands and businesses, and we’re honoured to partner with our customers to help drive innovation, efficiency and business growth.
“This agreement takes our pre-commitment at The YARDS to over 70 per cent and we look forward to welcoming more customers over the coming months.”
Michelle McNally, Chief Executive Officer Aware Real Estate said it was a big win.
“It’s pleasing to see yet another quality global business join the community we’re creating at The YARDS, and exciting to see the momentum we’ve created as the estate progresses,” he said.
On completion, The YARDS will be home to more than 13 state-of-the-art facilities of approximately 284,000 square metres across 77 hectares.
Precinct-wide sustainability initiatives include integrated parks, walking tracks and cycle paths, extensive solar installations, water harvesting and recycling, and full electrification to facilitate a seamless transition to fossil fuel-free energy sources in the future.
Strategically located on the corner of Mamre Road and the future Southern Link Road in the Western Sydney Aerotropolis, its location offers convenient access to key transport infrastructure, including the M4 and M7, and sits within Greater Western Sydney’s sought-after industrial zone.
