Stockland Developments, a diversified property group, is set to initiate construction on the concluding phase of its expansive 19-hectare industrial estate, the Queensland Logistics Estate, located in Willawong.
This $90-million venture, known as the fourth and final stage of the Willawong Distribution Centre, was approved by the Brisbane City Council in late 2023 (DA A006245911). The upcoming development comprises two two-storey buildings, collectively offering five separate warehouse tenancies with a combined gross floor area spanning approximately 45,622 square metres.
In addition to the warehouse spaces, each building will feature designated hardstand areas and outdoor recreational spaces, further enhancing the overall functionality and appeal. The project also includes parking provisions for a total of 467 vehicles.
Stockland’s commitment to expanding the Willawong Distribution Centre has been evident in the completion of its preceding stages. The initial stage was successfully concluded in early 2019, followed by the completion of stage two at the close of 2020.
Stage 3 a significant milestone in the Centre’s development, achieved practical completion in March of the subsequent year, consolidating the estate’s reputation as a fully leased and thriving industrial hub.
Stage 4 of this project is strategically positioned in the north-eastern precinct of the estate, situated at 221 Gooderham Road, approximately 19.5 kilometres from the heart of Brisbane. This new phase will seamlessly integrate with Stockland Pallara, a meticulously planned community within the burgeoning outer suburbs of Brisbane.
Stockland’s Head of Logistics Development, Craig Lenarduzzi, expressed confidence in the project’s progress, stating their intention to finalize stage four by the end of the current year. The prestigious contract for this development has been awarded to CIP Constructions, a commercial and industrial builder with a history of collaboration with Stockland, notably on the Yatala Distribution Centre South. The architectural design for the expansion is credited to Nettletontribe, a renowned name in the industry.
As Stockland embarks on this final phase of the Willawong Distribution Centre, their dedication to delivering state-of-the-art logistics facilities remains a testament to their enduring commitment to the Queensland industrial landscape. This visionary project is poised to make a significant contribution to the region’s growth and prosperity.
