Inghams commits to east Perth warehouse

Hazelmere Logistics Estate has been taking shape since 2015.

ASX listed poultry supplier Inghams Group has committed to a temperature-controlled distribution centre at LOGOS’ Hazelmere Logistics Estate, east of Perth.

On 2.47 hectares – just over 10 per cent of the (20ha) business park – the property will contain 9845 square metres, also with multi-purpose rooms and a weigh label area.

The landlord and tenant are aiming for a 5-star Green Star rating.

“Key sustainability initiatives include a 500kw solar system, 455kL rainwater tank and sustainability and transparency in material procurement including a minimum of 80pc of construction waste to be re-used or recycled,” a LOGOS spokesperson said.

As well as the Inghams warehouse, the landlord will speculatively develop a 19,000 sqm facility at Hazelmere Logistics Estate, available as a whole or in 6300 sqm tenancies.

Near Perth Airport, Hazelmere is 14 kilometres from town.

Estate filling up

LOGOS acquired the land making way for Hazelmere Logistics Estate – 189 Bushmead Road – in 2015.

Upon completion in two years, the business park should contain 96,000 sqm of lettable area and be worth c$250m.

Organisations to have committed include DHL, Fisher & Paykel, Woolworths Limited’s Primary Connect and McPhee Distribution – the latter, the estate’s first pre-commitment.

Inghams was represented by TMX (story continues below).

CIP Constructions is head contractor for the build.

“We are proud of the progress of the Hazelmere Logistics Estate and the delivery of a premium facility to service our customers in Western Australia,” LOGOS head of Australia and New Zealand, Darren Searle, said.

ESR is the landlord’s largest shareholder following its $7.1 billion buy out in 2021 of ARA Asset Management – which acquired majority control of LOGOS the year earlier.

Salta strikes Melbourne deals

Meanwhile in Melbourne, Salta has secured two occupiers to a warehouse it developed speculatively in the Nexus Industrial Estate at Dandenong South.

PAC Trading has taken a larger tenancy, for 9627 sqm at 10 Cargo Court, for an initial five years.

Highgrove Bathrooms has also committed – for a 6555 sqm space to be known as 129 Portlink Drive – for seven years.

Kings Transport had earlier taken the balance of the 32,000 sqm warehouse which reached practical completion last month.

Colliers’ Fraser Pearce, Gordon Code and James Stott were the agents.
