Brisbane’s booming south west corridor continues to draw new businesses to the region’s growing industrial base.
Brisbane Isuzu has purchased a three-hectare site for more than $200 a square metre at Walker Corporation’s Citiswich Business Park to establish a new home for Brisbane Isuzu’s truck sales, service and parts divisions.
“We have been looking for some time now for the right site to expand our existing south east Queensland operations to cater for our growing business needs,” Brisbane Isuzu Managing Director Alan Newcombe said.
“You would be hard pressed to find a better positioned business park than Citiswich. The site is positioned with a 350-metre frontage alongside the Warrego Highway providing close access for trucks to the Warrego, Cunningham Highways and Ipswich Motorway.”
The addition of Isuzu to Citiswich means the number of different industries joining the growing business park continues to grow with aerospace, defence, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, transport and logistics already established.
Walker Corporation Development Manager Todd Martindale said he was pleased to welcome Brisbane Isuzu to Citiswich Business Park.
“There is increased activity in Citiswich from a diverse range of corporate businesses with many new owner-occupiers looking to buy land,” he said.
“Confidence jumps every time businesses like Brisbane Isuzu invest in Citiswich.
“Twenty-twenty has seen an unprecedented uplift in activity on previous years as corporate businesses, such as Brisbane Isuzu, and other industrial funds groups, strategically position themselves on the best available sites.
“Walker is now well underway with the construction of new estate roads in the business park to open up the next staged land release.”
Colliers International National Director of Industrial Matthew Frazer-Ryan introduced Brisbane Isuzu to the fully serviced, cleared and level site.
“On the back of current requirements, we believe the industrial and logistics leasing and sales markets will keep gathering momentum into 2021,” he said.
“We are seeing significant levels of infrastructure investment and huge growth of e-commerce and businesses consolidating into properties that are more efficient.”
There are lots available ranging from 2,000 square metres to 20 hectares.
Construction is planned to start on Isuzu’s facility in 2021.
